There is range and generous spirit on many essential levels. ~Philip Schultz, Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, Failure Blurb for The Long Way to Home: A Short Memoir: If you happen to need a book that will move you to tears, Dr. Tammy Nuzzo-Morgan has written it—an absorbing and heartrending story of the multiple traumas of her early life and the long journey to face and surmount them. Lacking any permanent stability in her family life, victim of both physical abuse and incest, hobbled with fear and internalized self-hate, she survived for years by way of self-medicating, dissociation, and desperate attempts to flee. Already at age 30 she had lived through more than a score of broken relationships and losses, with more tragedies to come later in life even as she gathered strength through poetry, psychotherapy, and sheer force of will. We are fortunate to have her testimony, often in painful detail, which gathers coherence out of an almost unfathomable emotional chaos and follows the dizzying path of suffering all the way to compassion, love, and self-acceptance. From her inspiring account, the many who know these troubles in their own lives will recognize the patterns, the ways to survive against the odds, and how to recover lost hopes. ~ George Northrup, Ph.D. Psychologist & Poet Tammy Nuzzo-Morgan’s newest collections are: Chasing Clouds (Wyld Syde Press, 2024) The Long Way to Home: A Short Memoir (Wyld Syde Press, 2024). Her other publications include a children's book, Would You Hug a Porcupine (The North Sea Poetry Scene Press, 2022); Howling the Moon (7th Quarry Press, 2018); Life’s a Beach (Writers Ink, 2011); For Michael (North Sea Poetry Scene, 2008); Let Me Tell You Something (Street, 2006); One Woman's Voice (Street, 2005); The Bitter, The Sweet (North Sea Poetry Scene Press, 2004). Nuzzo-Morgan's dissertation for her Ph.D. was on The Healing Power of Poetry. She teaches at Long Island University in the departments of: English, Humanities, and Sociology.
