Darren Stein worked in the townships and squatter camps around Johannesburg and Soweto from 1992-1996. His fields included adult literacy, voter education and community policing. His poetry deals with the emotional turmoil of his years in the townships, the psychological toll that this took upon him, and his subsequent immigration to Australia. His salvation is the joy of parenthood and marriage.
