Based on the online movement of the same name, 'Seen Reading' collects more than a hundred fictions inspired by sightings of people reading on Toronto transit, each reader re-invented in a poetic piece of short fiction.

Selected as one of the Globe & Mail’s “Top 100 Books of 2012.”

Seen Reading is the exciting and unique debut collection of microfictions by Julie Wilson, Canada’s pre-eminent literary voyeur. Based on the award-winning and critically acclaimed online movement of the same name, Seen Reading catalogues over a hundred reader sightings—brief descriptions of individuals Wilson has spied reading books in public, on Toronto’s transit system. Wilson then imaginatively expands on each sighting, re-inventing the seen reader in a poetic piece of short fiction. Tender and poignant, these fictions are love letters to the reader and, gathered together, form a beautifully inspired fictional map, joyfully charting an urban centre’s cultural commitment to books and literature in an era that continually predicts the demise of both.

Interesting, slightly creepy micro fictions created based on the authors sightings of individuals and what she sees them reading.
