"These are wry, wise, ironic poems attentive not just to nature and memory but to the regular, invigorating hauntings of family and influences. The realization of our mortality is everywhere in them, but it only deepens John McKernan’s plainspoken pleasure in what he sees so clearly with each sidelong glance. Resurrection of the Dust is a brilliant selection of first-rate poems that should earn him the wider audience he has long deserved."—Ron Hanson, author of Mariette in Ecstasy
