A gothic and disturbing poems collection, an exciting journey into the nightmare that will leave you breathless. Words to be read more than once, to hear again the sound of the emotions that rotate inside the magical kaleidoscope imagined by the authors. You will never be the same again, after being caught by that Venus, in all her forms.
Una raccolta di poesie gotiche e inquietanti, altamente emozionali, per un viaggio da incubo che vi lascerà senza fiato, costringendovi alla rilettura e a seguire le continue rotazioni di un magico caleidoscopio (in lingua inglese).
