Here is a unique and unmistakable voice for our moment.
– Paul Mariani
In My Father’s House is simply one of the most powerful books of poems I have read in a long, long time. Hodgen celebrates our humanity as he looks, unblinking, at the misery of the world with intensity, integrity, and compassion.
– Jim Daniels
John Hodgen’s book is a remarkable achievement, with poem after poem facing the relentlessness of the world and delivering life to us with clarity and an art so deft as to seem invisible.
– Vern Rutsala
In My Father’s House is a tender book made of tough-voiced poems, that voice tested by loss, educated by it and resolved to live with the uncanny wonder of it.
