This work by Grace Cavalieri and April Carter Grant highlights just some of Didi's best choices when it comes to contributions in poetry, short story, painting, and reviewing from many of the artists Didi honors and works with quite closely. The poetry of Charles Jensen, Andrew Demcak, Grady Harp, and Melissa McEwen is particularly strong. It is astonishing to see just how fine this art really is.
What a way to honor Didi Menendez and the rest through art and other works that Didi inspired in one way or another. After I read this book I have the utmost respect and admiration for Didi Menendez, not to mention the other artists who are incredibly talented and underrated to say the least--Didi certainly sets a high standard!
Bravo, Didi Menendez--and the other fine artists who are highlighted in this book!
