Reviews - What do customers think about Straight Astray?
Italian poet, world traveler, and imaginative wordsmith... Sep 16, 2005
Zanelli's work is amazing because he creates poetry in English, his second language. He uses an impressive vocabulary in interesting ways to lure readers into his world -- the Italy he loves, the timeless bonds of friendship, the injustices man perpetrates on others, or the far reaches of our Universe. Through word play he shares a sense of fun and wonder. And he often plumbs poignant depths of feeling every human can understand.
I agree with the American critic who said Alessio Zanelli is a one-of-a-kind original. He's gaining the respect of peers and the devotion of poetry fans around the world. For poetry lovers everywhere, Straight Astray is highly recommended.
