I was thinking I was going to make some kind of joke, but things do feel more rad after reading. There's just something so fun about these poems, at the same time so insightful, compassionate, wondrous, and human. I love the rhythm, but I adore the way Holland surprises. The words, the ideas, the voice, it all could only come from Holland. It's him and it's perfect and it's...rad. That's the best way I can put it.
Putting things in order of ranking is impossible for many of us, yet chances are if you've ever met Dustin Holland, he is in your top 5 living writers. An even better human being, Dustin's beliefs of what the world could be are displayed in his collection of writing, Get More Rad. The messages in this book are a new-aged Call to Arms, but instead of brute force, it's a call up all your family and friends and tell them you love them. The world needs more have-fun writing like this.
Dustin Holland's poetry can be found at Counterexample Poetics, Red-Fez, Maintenant: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Poetry, Ditch Poetry, PigeonBike, and Guerilla Pamphlets. He was also included in S.A. Griffin’s Poetry Bomb. Dustin edits Guerilla Pamphlets under the name Archey P Caane.
