Amber Dawn's memoir How Poetry Saved My Life
is reviewed by Stacey May Fowles in the National Post
, who writes that the book is
"Powerful and necessary ... The book's very structure rails against convention and expectation, linking together poems, prose poems, and narrative storytelling to build a cohesive portrait of Dawn's queer identity, her life as a sex worker, an assault survivor, an activist, a writer and an artist. It is tender and biting, gorgeous and courageous, even heroic and, above all, it is hers."
