Inhaltsangabe: David Stallings Resurrection Bay is a deeply personal chapbook collection about a boy growing up with his mother and stepfather in the 1950s. By presenting resonant particulars of the era and landscapes through which the speaker moves, Stallings seamlessly transports readers through time and space, as in these lines from the poem Leaving Nashville, 1952 : I m packed between suitcases and boxes / into the back seat of a Buick Dynaflow, the view // blocked, the air thick with Dick s Camels / and my mother s Herbert Tareytons. The poems of Resurrection Bay are constructed of unadorned language spoken with unflinching honesty, thus creating a profoundly moving and memorable experience. Lana Hechtman Ayers, author of A New Red **** David Stallings' tender coming of age poems from Alaska are evocative, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting. Stallings captures the chilly world of a difficult childhood and blesses it with a lifetime's perspective and grace. Resurrection Bay is a remarkable suite of poems. Tim McNulty, author of In Blue Mountain Dusk **** Set into motion by a Buick Dynaflow with Tennessee and Alaska at the tips of memory s axle, the rich American odyssey propelling this graceful collection vividly resurrects a painful coming of age. In search of his past, in search of his very name, Stallings forges unlikely beauty from stark remains the rotting trailer, the spawned-out salmon. He discovers refuge, redemption, repose, and a deep pulse of longing / and return, for himself and for us, his fortunate readers. John Willson, Pushcart Prize winner and author of The Son We Had
