Son of a Holocaust survivor, Jason Sommer writes of troubles that unfold at the intersection of history made and personality in making; of self and other; of wakefulness and sleep. His world is post-Holocaust, and the poetic voice in this book is one that emerges from that calamity, telling the stories of those who have finally begun to speak to him, and now through him. As a survivor's child, Sommer must consider how to live in the wake of history, among those who are indelibly marked by it.

"Reading Jason Sommer's Other People's Troubles is like crisscrossing boundaries in the flesh and the imagination....These poems honed from the past and present are heartfelt epistles to the future". -- Yusef Komunyakaa
