About this title


In I Use To Fall Down, his first major compi-lation of his poems, which was favorably received, Mr. Holiday took the reader on a whirlwind of emotional topics, from nuclear proliferation(Washerwoman Blues) to starving children in Somalia (Il Walad), from police bru-tality (Rest In Peace, Cop Killers, and When the Cops Drive By) to reflections on his twenty-one years under the New York City foster care system(Somehow, Mama Knew, Stop Laughing At Me, and What Dad Might Have Said). He has attempted to be honest, some have said too brutally honest, about abuse, the very abuse he has experienced at the hands of care-takers and that abuse which he sees perpetrated by man against man.With Letters to Osama..., Mr. Holiday runs the gambit, again, of topics as current as the war over Iraq, the ugliness of 9-ll, and he continues to be brutally honest in his criticisms and observations of the Bush Administration, the UN, and other world leaders and the roles they play in the world4s conflicts(foreign and domes-tic).D. Alexander Holiday is a native New Yorker, raised in foster care and was stricken with Gillian Barre Syndrome (also called Ascending Paralysis) at the age of ten. He holds a Master of Arts degree from the State University of New York at Albany. He is currently working on his autobiography, In the Care of Strangers: The Autobiography of A Foster Child. His work can be found on the web at:, and
