ANU student newspaper review of my poetry book Songs for the Band Unformed

VICTORIA FAY in the Australian National University student newspaper Woroni reviews my book, Songs for the Band Unformed.. She says, among other things: Songs for the Band Unformed reflects a broad scope of modern Australian life, exploring the personal, the political, and often tying the two together with a dark sense of humour. Passant, with his inviting poetic style, has successfully produced a collection that can appeal to even those, like me, with an ingrained apprehension towards poetry.

So if you are weary of the “politically correct” lies and promises oversaturating society…this book is for you!
