MOTION SICKNESS: a memoir
by Lorne Shirinian
Motion Sickness is a memoir that takes as its starting point Newton’s First Law of Motion, which states that an object in motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. Shirinian goes through selected moments and events in his life and the counterforces he has had to deal with. In doing so, he also describes the struggle his parents had as orphan survivors of the Armenian Genocide who were brought to Canada to begin a new life in the 1920’s.
