Editorial Reviews


"Holstad's poetry is reminscent of the Beat movement ... and has a "Whitmanish-Ferlinghetti" street feel which is refreshing to see. ... He recreates the stream-of-consciousness, unedited inner life of we solitary human beings which moves his work from a narrow to universal scope." -- The Hawai'i Review

"Holstad's work is brassy and strong." -- Laurel Speer

"I enjoyed Holstad's poems and appreciate their style." -- Michael Bugeja, columnist, Writer's Digest Magazine

"Scott C. Holstad is a first rate poet." -- Gerald Locklin

"With his scruffy, rambling and streetwise poems, Scott C. Holstad is in the forefront of an important movement transforming American poetry. He shakes free of the literary stodge and makes reading poetry the fun it's supposed to be." -- Edward Field

"You're doing great!" -- Lawrence Ferlinghetti

A wonderful collection of poems that sound like they're straight out of Ferlinghetti. Great Beat style and tone, good mix of subject matter, some hard hitting poems and some softer stuff. I have read it and re-read it and love it! I know Allen and Jack and Ferlinghetti and the others would love it too.
