How Poetry Saved My Life, by Amber Dawn
“In most large cities,” writes Amber Dawn, “there are an estimated 10,000 people (mainly women) working as prostitution-based sex workers and yet we rarely hear from them.” How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler’s Memoir is one of those voices.
A raw, moving, and provocative memoir about sex work, queer identity, and the transformative power of literature and art, How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler’s Memoir is a multifaceted portrait of Dawn’s experiences from hustling on the streets of Vancouver to present-day life as a writer, filmmaker, activist, artist, and educator.
