Dean Rader is the hot poet of the moment around here; totally the Paris Hilton of everything that Paris Hilton isn't. Minibio: He's from Western Oklahoma. He formerly held the post of dean at the University of San Francisco, where he still teaches, briefly causing him to be Dean Dean. Bail-bonding runs in his family. He seems obsessed by the Frog and Toad books. Are these the elements that led him to a life of hardcore poetry? Where the hell else would they lead a man? (Drugs and/or religion.)
Rader recently won the Literary Death Match; we're pretty sure this is how he got hot.
