Crystal Lake Publishing released today THE PLACE OF BROKEN THINGS, my new dark poetry collection written in collaboration with Linda D. Addison. The book is for sale at Amazon (printed and digital edition).
Cover art by Adrian Borda, interior illustrations by Luke Spooner.
Symopsis: Bram Stoker Award® winners Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti use their unique voices to create a dark, surrealistic poetry collection exploring the many ways shattered bodies, minds, and souls endure. They created poems of visionary imagery encompassing death, gods, goddesses and shadowy, Kafkaesque futures by inspiring each other, along with inspiration from others (Allen Ginsberg, Pablo Neruda, Phillis Wheatley, etc.). Construction of The Place started with the first bitten apple dropped in the Garden. The foundation defined by the crushed, forgotten, and rejected. Filled with timeless space, its walls weep with the blood of brutality, the tears of the innocent, and predatory desire. Enter and let it whisper dark secrets to you.
"Addison and Manzetti appear, here, as a songwriting team, certain tunes attributed to one, then the other, but regularly meeting, so that not only do we get to know where each great poet is coming from, but their electric union to boot. At turns gritty and aqueous, this book is totally alive. Addison and Manzetti have written a volume in which literally every line is worthy of being that book's title."
-- Josh Malerman, bestselling author of BIRD BOX
"There is no book of poetry quite like THE PLACE OF BROKEN THINGS! Linda Addison and Alessandro Manzetti spin dark magic! Highly recommended!"
--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-WARS and GLIMPSE
"Addison and Manzetti have teamed up to create a dazzling array of images, ideas, and emotions. When flying solo through the pages, their voices are distinct, knee deep in bravura and style. And yet, their collaborations are seamless. Powerful stuff, indeed. You will find yourself re-visiting the pieces in this book, each time discovering something new."
--Thomas Monteleone, awarded author of FEARFUL SYMMETRIES
