How Poetry Saved My Life in the National Post (May 2013)

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."
