Dean Rader

Dean Rader was raised in western Oklahoma. He earned a BA at Baylor University and an MA and a PhD in comparative literature at SUNY-Binghamton.

Eliot Prize, and the Writer's League of Texas Book Award. His recent collection, Landscape Portrait Figure Form, was named by the Barnes & Noble Review as one of the 'Best Books of Poetry of the Year.' Rader chairs the English Department at the University of San Francisco and has written columns for the San Francisco Chronicle and the Huffington Post. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and two sons.
