In the Grove Spring 2008 Special Tribute Issue for Andrés Montoya
Be sure to get a copy of this special issue of In the Grove--published in Spring 2008, guest edited and with an introduction by Daniel Chacón, this special issue is nearly 200 pages of poetry, recollections, and prose about the late poet, Andrés Montoya, who won an American Book Award posthumously for his first and only book. The issue--only $12 (or I will mail you three copies for $30)--features work by Rigoberto González, Juan Felipe Herrera, Garrett Hongo, Philip Levine, Tim Z. Hernandez, Sheryl Luna, Lee Herrick, Oscar Bermeo, Javier Huerta, Craig Perez, David Dominguez, Marisol Baca, Maceo Montoya, Sasha Pimentel Chacón, Corrinne Clegg Hales, Steve Yarbrough, and featuring the previously unpublished poem, “Pákatelas,” by Andrés Montoya. If you already have one, think about getting one for a friend. In the ten years since I founded this magazine, it is without a doubt the issue of which I am most proud. Large orders discounted.
