Love is a drug

Review: After Delores

December, 2014

I was a bit disappointed and shocked, but it occurred to me that the author was being very honest and wanted to show that we always see substances to be addictive, whether it is alcohol or drugs, but we fail to see that love can also be an addiction.

Winnipeg artist’s book explores “he”

'he' will be available to you soon, and 'he' will be very much topical

October, 2014

The images and the stories complement each other poeticaly; one is not an illustration of the other, and does not give clearer context. Both are tools that makes the reader feel something beyond the pages, something inside ourselves. Both allow a narrative to flow through the book. An achievement that might not have been as successful if each would have presented their works independently.

A Trustworthy Tool for Trans Education

Trans advocate and educator reviews Trans Bodies, Trans Selves

September, 2014

Academic literature about trans people is often written by folks who don’t have the lived experience, so I’m usually skeptical when something new lands on my desk. There are times I’ll need to close a book, take a Tylenol and go for a walk. Reading Trans Bodies, Trans Selves was different. The first thing going […]

Approaching life with honesty

Review: Misfit

December, 2014

It gave me hope to continue to try and make changes to things that are important to me and it reminded me of how much I’m in love with my partner. But most importantly, it showed me that you never really stop growing, every day is a new chance to make your dreams happen and everyday should be cherished to its fullest potential.

What love is really all about

Review: Before the Rain

December, 2014

This memoir is one I will remember and think about for quite some time. It gives love hope and it gives love truth. Love is never easy and it sometimes doesn’t work out. Relationships take work; love is one part of a relationship, but there are so many more qualities.

I’m a Registered Nurse, not a Whore

July, 2014

Where Perdue distinguishes herself from other authors of realistic fiction is in her writing style itself. Descriptive world building is her strong suit, and in most of the stories the settings she creates are more readily felt than the characters who inhabit them. Although the worlds of Perdue’s stories are superficially different, when taken together they create a strange and interesting collage.
