Reviews

"I finished Street Angel. Savoured it slowly, which is not always my way. Didn't want it to end. So much loss and pain and then again, such beauty, and isn't that the way of life, the mystery we can never quite understand. I was very very moved by it."--Heather King
"Magie Dominic tells us many things about her young life as a little girl on the seacoast of Newfoundland, where in the 1940s it matters a lot if you are Catholic or non-Catholic. This little girl grows up to become the woman who is able to write this book against all the odds of fear and superstition."--Nancy Milford
"Street Angel picks up the thread of narrative from The Queen of Peace Room, spanning politics, celebrity, social history, war, television, film, pop music, and other media. Dominic imbues all of this for us, her readers, in luminous prose, crafting an odyssey across decades. In this exceptionally courageous account, the author seeks to overcome familial abuse, utilizing the virtues of intelligence, wit, and passion, accompanied by a chorus of societal furies, such as world wars, economic upheaval, and social unrest. This is where she reaches a zenith of life writing."--Anne Burke
"Dominic writes as Julius Caesar spoke ('I came, I saw, I conquered.'), as Dickens wrote, and as Toni Morrison writes. The style is immediate and emotive. It also makes for a fasten-your-seat-belt read."--Marjorie Simmins
