My new dark poetry collection WHITECHAPEL RHAPSODY reviewed by Steve Stread.
Excerpt from the review: (...) Manzetti goes from two line rhyming to three or four line spurts of prose with the ease of a painter laying down color on a canvass. It creates a sense of reading a story that is interspersed with song lyrics. (...) Manzetti is a stunning writer and the visual scope he created here is truly phenomenal. Each poem is layered with single poem story and over-arcing story, creating a thematic connection that really forces the reader to gallop along.

"Whitechapel Rhapsody is an assault on the five senses, transporting readers back in time to London’s seedy East End. Alessandro Manzetti creates horrific images drenched in blood using masterfully crafted prose and perfect timing. You can feel the dampness of the night, smell the sweat, decay, and death, and hear the footsteps of the legendary Jack the Ripper on the cobblestone streets behind you. This book will have you sleeping with the lights on. A must for every lover of dark poetry."
‒ Owl Goingback, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of 'Crota' and 'Coyote Rage'
“A brutal ripper of a collection from multi-award-winning poet Alessandro Manzetti, a ‘master of bones and knives’, whose poems are ‘pustules of morbid memories’ both as ‘fast as razors and slow as cancer’. Whitechapel Rhapsody will eviscerate you.” ‒ Lee Murray, three-time Bram Stoker Award®-nominee, and author of 'Grotesque: Monster Stories'
