Book Review: "Mean Street Diaries" by Stephen Smith

I found this lovely book just waiting for me as I paid for my coffee. I was snapping photos for my own notes and there I was documenting the experience. So I decided to slow down and spend some time with his story. I chose my favourite bits and hope I’ve made something respectful to the author’s message, which – Wow, yes, please help the #homeless .

So in the spirit of sharing and my “Aeryn’s Commons” statement, I felt a retelling of these moments as a review of a piece of work and very large background story was my own contribution. I have my own ‘experience’ of facing homelessness, but it’s vastly different from this one.

It's on Kindle, at Amazon UK. I've just sent a free sample to my iPad. How awesome!

I will upload to YouTube later and update this post as I go :)


I left the book on the borrowing shelf at Costa. Go find it, it's been signed by the author :)
