Reviews

Sarah Dearing's Courage My Love so strongly depicts an angle on a place and a time, so profoundly evokes a stench and a feeling, that it creates a true literary landscape. It's that good. Seriously. It's a place you could paint from memory, describe in detail to police, as though you had lived there - a great read.' (The Globe and Mail) '(Dearing) has a powerful empathy and an uncanny talent for establishing voice and character within the quick beat of a line. These are rare gifts, and signs of a future without bounds.' (The National Post)
