"Here is a unique and unmistakable voice for our moment."
"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."
"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."
