"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."
"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."
