Reviews / Endorsements:

"John Hodgen's book is a remarkable achievement, with poems after poem facing the relentlessness of the world and delivering life to us with clarity and an art so deft as to seem invisible. But the art is there and brings something new to poetry, which I am delighted to greet with warmth and enthusiasm."—Vern Rutsala

Bread without Sorrow, JOHN HODGEN's second volume of poetry, earned him the Balcones Poetry Prize in 2002.
