This Is Your Tragic Back Story by Sven Stears


29 in stock


“This Is Your Tragic Back Story” is the debut collection of poetry from Sven Stears, and digs deep into a lived experience of addiction, trauma, recovery and ultimately, hope.

Bravado, inter-gernerational communication breakdowns, regret and “a landscape of bad habits” such as alcohol abuse, are all explored here in Sven’s effortless, emotional storylines.

But more than regret, these rich vignettes also show the forgin, breaking and reforging of homes in friendships; which tells a more hopeful story of searching for a place to belong.
