Online at Always Trust in Books blog the review of my new poetry collection NO MERCY (Crystal Lake Publishing, June 2017).
Excerpt from the review: (...) Manzetti is true to his word; these poems are incredibly dark! No Mercy is a remarkable read. Inspired by Janis Joplin, her life and death, as well as a collection of varied and haunting stories. I was taken aback by the emotions that AM invokes with these twisted tales. The imagery that AM conjures up with his expertly written pieces was superb. Superbly disturbing. This poetry is not for the faint hearted, it is hair raising, filled with stories of death, cannibalism, suicide and damnation. AM’s work appeals to the darker, more macabre side of our psyches. No Mercy distorts tragedies of everyday life and AM’s delivery ensures that they stay with you for a long time. (...) Overall I have given No Mercy 5/5 stars as it was a scary, heart racing read that reminded me of the power of poetry. Stripping down the narrative and focusing on visceral and irrational moments of humanity. I recommend No Mercy to all those readers who want to experience a darker shade of fiction.
