"A naturalized Trinidadian through marriage, Diane, with an acute eye, successfully explores in poetry and art the contrasts between her Mennonite heritage in wintry Manitoba with the "letting go" carnival culture of Trinidad's opulent tropical landscape. Lines such as "mashing down the place" and "Women would go mad without Carnival" are a foil to "standoffish Canadians" and "my past a black statue dress/ unrumpled/ not even a swish." A bi-cultural tribute to both cultures."
-- Madeline Coopsammy, author of Prairie Journey

"Diane Driedger's artful poems and allusive paintings tumble us through a carnival of the rebellious body. Red With Living invites a nervy reassessment of pain and pain's intimate trespass upon the suffering, joyous body."
-- M ira Cook, author of Monologue Dogs
