Linda France's poetry is both sensuous and sensitive, peeling back layers of language and meaning in pursuit of honesty. Carol Rumens has called her 'a clever, accessible new voice. Energetic, ranging, witty, candid, informal and excitingly individualistic'. The Gentleness of the Very Tall, her second collection, treads the tightrope between freedom and threat, violence and love. Evoking a world under pressure - personal and political - the poems strive for balance and transformation, with an uncompromising pragmatism.
