While revealing the poet's pet obsession - the comforts and dangers of community - this poetry collection covers multiple continents and shades of uncertainty. As the narrative roves across a range of territories, including embassies, subdivisions, cottages, islands, and compounds both real and imagined, it explores the concept of borders: how they materialise in the personal and the political spheres, and how they relate to physical and psychological security. The poems demonstrate how the poetic self can move, sometimes queasily and sometimes bombastically, through such boundaries.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this vivid, near-submerged or dream-like world, I paid particular attention to the ways in which containment and incompetence were worked out by the writer, both as values and behaviors. These poems fell into my eyes." Bhanu Kapil, poet, "The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers""


"A poet alert to every least quiver in the inner and outer worlds; the grace, gusto, humor, and intimacy of these richly vivid and unusually quotable poems are the most generous of gifts. "Double Agent" is an altogether enthralling debut." Gary Lutz, author, "Stories in the Worst Way""


"Michelle Chan Brown's collection takes us on journeys across continents by way of hard fact combined with the subtlest of strangeness, the eeriest musicality, and the most startling of shifts and observations. Hers is an entirely new vision and voice. This collection is a real achievement, but, most of all, it is haunting." Laura Kasischke, author, "Space, in Chains""
