Poetry. Women's Studies. Winner of the 2011 First Book Award for Poetry, selected by Bhanu Kapil. DOUBLE AGENT reveals the author's pet obsession: the comforts and dangers of community. While the poems rove across a range of territories embassies, subdivisions, cottages, islands, compounds real and imagined what emerges is a concern with borders, how they materialize in the personal and the political as well as their relationship to physical and psychological security. A secondary question is how the poetic self can move, sometimes queasily, sometimes bombastically, always uncertainly, through them.
