This is another collection of power poetry from Tom Piccirilli (the first being the Stoker Award-winning A STUDENT OF HELL). If anything, this one is even better. As you can guess from the title, there is a lot of raw emotion to be found in the book. The themes of the verse are mature and cover a lot of ground. Unlike a lot of modern poetry, Mr. Piccirilli writes with a clear and concise voice, using a great many concrete images to ground his narrative voice. This isn't clouds and rivers and birds here, and each poem reads like a short, muscular story concerning pain, anger, broken-hearts, failures, and tragedy. And yet, don't be mistaken that the work is all downbeat, because even in his darkest moment, Piccirilli writes with a suave blackly humorous voice.
