Ami Sands Brodoff is the award-winning author of three novels and two volumes of stories. The Sleep of Apples, her new story collection centres on nine closely-linked characters who confront crises related to mental illness, mortality, and gender identity. Ami’s novel, In Many Waters, focuses on three orphans whose lives intersect on the island of Malta, and grapples with our current refugee crisis. The White Space Between won The Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction (The Vine Award), and is the story of a mother and daughter struggling with the impact of the Holocaust. Bloodknots, a volume of thematically linked stories about marginalized families on the edge, dramatizes the threads that bind people together and the ones that unravel without warning. Bloodknots was a finalist for The Re-Lit Award. Her debut novel, Can You See Me?penetrates into both the point-of-view of a young man with schizophrenia and the sister who struggles to help him. The novel was nominated for The Pushcart Prize and is a recommended book of NAMI (The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill).
