The Passenger is a collection of poems that shows Duggan's continued interest in place and a marked tendency to memorialise; that is, a continued interest in ways of rendering the world and the world of experience as both present and as fragile. 'One of the most versatile, politically aware and entertaining poets in Australia.' The ALS Gold Medal Judges' Report 'Duggan's technical and emotional range, his grasp of history and ability to let the record stand - all take on a richness and freshness rare in local poetry.' Carl Harrison-Ford, Sydney Morning Herald Winner of The Age Poetry Book of the Year award (for Mangroves ), 2003
