Product Description

Lowell Jaeger has taught creative writing at Flathead Valley Community College for the past 30 years. In 2017 he was named Montana's Poet Laureate. He is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, winner of the Grolier Poetry Peace Prize, and recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Montana Arts Council. In 2010, Jaeger was awarded the Montana Governor's Humanities Award for his work in promoting civil civic discourse.

“In War on war, Lowell Jaeger explored the grief-ridden choices that made the Vietnam War the American tragedy it was. Here, in this new book, the war is even closer to home. These are simply the best poems written about divorce since W.D. Snodgrass's Heart's Needle. Here are the voices of the ex-wife, the father bereft of his children, and the children—all raised in common eloquence and tender fury.”
—Robert Dana

“At the emotional core of Hope against Hope is the father's separation from his children. Lowell Jaeger's new poems probe the complexities of divorce as they seek to understand the twin mysteries of connection and separation within the family. Jaeger's characteristic gift is to retrieve odd moments which break open to reveal the horrors and delights of everyday life.”
—Lorrie Smith

“Clear, magnificently expressed, Lowell Jaeger's poems are poignant in their honesty. A heartbreakingly beautiful collecton.”
—Kathleen Spivack
