Praise for The Hurricane:
"The poems in the Hurricane are rich in emotions. They take the reader on a journey which ranges from monochromatic to full color. They are bursting with energy, and vibrant with modern and contemporary memories."
David Williams - Driving Instructor/Poet/Author of A Question of Thought, No Longer Searching, Shadows Of Life. Graduate of Manchester University, Manchester, United Kingdom.
"Through the use of a variety of poetic devices, Deborah skillfully brings beauty through nuance to every line of her writing. The selection of poems in this book is a true testament to her talent in exposing thoughts and feelings universal to mankind in a unique and endearing way."
Eileen Manassian Ghali- English Language Instructor, MA - Middle East University Beirut, Lebanon.
"Ms. Guzzi is a poet for this generation!"
Andrea Dietrich, ESL/ Spanish Instructor and Poet, Pleasant Grove, UT - Brigham Young University Provo, Utah, United States.
"The poems in The Hurricane are filled to overflowing with emotional energy ranging from political overdrive, as in The Upcoming Storm to the raw sensuality in The Golden Hour, reminiscent of Dylan Thomas' Under Milkwood. But perhaps her best work is to be found in When Madness Rides on Moonlight. Van Gogh is made to relive his tortured existence - and indeed a terrible beauty is re-born - from Deborah's use of the symbolism and allegory which recalls Yeats in Easter 1916."
