Ian Stephens was a poet and singer-songwriter. Diary of a Trademark is a raw, powerful book that explores life on the edge. Like Dante, Stephens takes us through hell. This contemporary hell is filled with the screams and tears of human beings trapped in a world that is and is not of their own making. Stephens writes about sorrow, disease, sex, killers, money, mutiny, hope, nobility, death and the movies called life.
