Laurie Duggan’s most recent book is No Particular Place To Go (Shearsman 2017). A new Selected Poems will appear from the same press late in 2018 and a further collection of early work, Divides, Adventures & Blues 1978-1989, will appear from Puncher & Wattmann. In 1953, when he was four years old, Duggan moved to Clayton, then on the edge of Melbourne. Apart from a brief period in shared accommodation (Malvern 1970), he stayed there until 1972 when Sydney called. He has spent the last ten years in a market town in East Kent, UK. Funny old life, innit?
