Reviews

"Amber Dawn's story is a sinister fairy tale, as intoxicating as any of the Glories [characters] but also an allegory for the emotional hazards of sex work." --"Bust"

"A uniquely rewarding read.... Amber Dawn keeps the proceedings at a darkly whimsical remove from the real hurts of the world. She knows we know that pain is real, that women are made chattels, that masters are cruel. She's after a larger vision that raises questions about the entire emotionally fraught edifice of our received beliefs about sex, men and women, roles and rights and abuses." -- "The Globe and Mail" (One of the Best Books of 2010)

"Amber Dawn's "Sub Rosa" is a masterpiece of imagination. It's haunting, chilling at points and then just so sweet. Her writing is stealthy and seductive, wise and witty and clever. Lock Mary Gaitskill in a closet with Francesca Lia Block and they might emerge with a map to "Sub Rosa" a glorious mystery that creeps you out and then totally enchants." --Michelle Tea, author of "Valencia" and "Rose of No Man's Land"
