My latest dark poetry collection NO MERCY (Crystal Lake Publishing, June 2017) reviewed by Judi Comeau at The Tomb of Dark Delight: "Bram Stoker Award winning author Alessandro Manzetti’s most recent poetry collection is centered upon in the famous—and infamous—hard-drinking, hard-drugging blues legend Janis Joplin. Joplin, who lived a short, incandescent life that is incandescently recalled here in searing language that brings to life the sadness and brilliance of a sad and tortured soul whose ragged moans of pain and anger became the centerpiece of a generation. This collection is more than a tribute to Joplin, however, it is a dark tribute to the blues in all of its forms, from the alleyways and gin joints to the blues-like artist’s life led by Frida Kahlo, who famously said, “I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.” These are dark poems of longing and dark desires that read like a Miles Davis riff and conjure deep notes of alienation and portent. Joan of Arc’s death by fire is on May 30, 1431 is described in molten horror in “The Maiden”, and the lost child, Janis Joplin, is brought back to furious life in “The Resurrection of the Pearl.” Take a ride on “The Ghost Subway”, where the drunken and the lost travel eternally, or join the madness of the last man in a lost city, or perhaps a lost world in “Apocalyptic Mass.” Surrealism meets horror in this eclectic and absorbing collection of dark imagery"
