Format: Paperback
Darren Stein's new collection of verse is a poetic masterpiece for the modern reader. Published by Xlibris, "Storage Space: A collection of contemporary poetry", offers a fascinating insight into Stein's journey through the last seventeen years of his life. Travelling backwards through time, Stein transports us through his experiences as a human rights activist working in the dieing stages of Apartheid South Africa. We witness the pain and loss of his close friends as well as the debilitating terror of Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder. We then observe the hopeful tale of immigration and marriage, as well as the joyful humour of parenthood and all of the other little foibles that are common to us all. Stein offers an honest, humorous and insightful exposition in all that he surveys. His style is simple, but not simplistic, and will offer something to everyone no matter what their literary appetite. Buy it for someone you love.

I don't normally enjoy poetry, but after my brother-in-law gave me "Storage Space" as a gift, I was delighted he had. Stein's perception of the bitter-sweet irony of life and the humor with which he describes it, is both entertaining and moving. I thoroughly recommend the book and can't wait to read his next one.Storage Space

As one of Stein's ex students and a qualified teacher myself, I am well aware of his writing talents, creativity, and charismatic personality. All of Stein's talents are rolled into this collection of contemporary poetry, allowing us to enjoy and empathise with his life experiences. Stein was an inspirational teacher, is an inspirational person, and I only hope that you are inspired by his work. I think this book is worthy of anybody's bookshelf, and discussion in the classroom.Storage Space

More About the Author

Darren Stein was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1973, and immigrated to Australia in 1996. He teaches History and Comparative Religion at a college on Sydney's North Shore. His art, short stories and poetry has been published widely, with some of his recent work appearing in Poetica, Twelve Winters Press, Words Apart, The Witty Bard, Rangitawa Press, Oddville Press, Corner Club Press, The Earl of Plaid, The Journal of Microfiction and HeadSpace Magazine.

Darren has published two anthologies. His first, Storage Space: A Collection of Contemporary Poetry was published by XLibris in 1998, and his second, The Nut House Poems, has just been released by Red Dashboard Publishing. Both are available through Amazon.

Darren's central philosophy is that poetry is about being human and sharing that humanity,
so that others can feel comfortable being human too.
