"The Wedding Spy" is a double agent. Linda Chase has spent half her life in the United States and half in the United Kingdom.
Understanding both countries, she belongs to each - and neither -and preserves an outsider's perspective wherever she goes.
Her poems perceive with keen familiarity but remain restless, unsettled.
The wonderful love lyrics are alert to what time and space do for, and then to, the human body and the heart.
The book is divided into three sections, each with a distinct dynamic and geography.
In the second section the poet invites us to enter the mysterious, formal world of movement, meditation and martial arts and includes a group of poems which reflect her 30 years of devotion to the practice of Tai Chi.
