Vali Myers A Memoir by Gianni Menichetti
In this brilliant memoir of Australian artist Vali Myers, by her friend and lover, Gianni Menichetti, Vali’s art, times, and personality come through unforgettably. For thirty years author Gianni Menichetti lived with Vali in the wild canyon of ‘Il Porto’—first as lover and willing slave, ultimately as friend, confidant, and protector.
