Ryan Fredric Steinbeck's third book of poetry is titled Hurricane Catherine. It is the second book in a trilogy, picking up where Upper Level Disturbance left off. The haunting use of metaphors about storms and elemental events drives this book towards it's end and describes the lonliness and treachery he experienced. Overall it's a brillant collection of poems that almost feels like a timeline journey through his travels to Florida during a difficult time of coping with loss. The journey ends in optimism when love and clarity emerge in the last pages.
