Summary As a childduring the height of the Cold War, Steve Healey learns that his father is a spy for the CIA. Beneath the banality of everyday life-the suburbs of Washington, DC; school and play; his parents' deteriorating marriage-assumed names, parallel lives, and myriad Cold War menaces linger. Drawing from CIA training manuals and pop culture references alike, Healey's poetry is both intimate and claustrophobic. In these poems, the natural anxiety ofchildhood is compounded by the weight of both national and family secrets, and Healey draws deep parallels between the shaky foundations of truth in his past and the paranoia and obfuscation that envelops our nation's present.
