Description - The Whitlam Mob, by Mungo MacCallum

'We were a motley mob, we sans-culottes of Canberra . . . ' In this vastly entertaining book, Mungo MacCallum captures the spirit of a nation-changing time. He portrays the Whitlam government's key figures - from Gough and Margaret to Lionel Murphy, Bill Hayden and Jim Cairns - as well as 'the other mob' in opposition - Billy McMahon, John Gorton, Malcolm Fraser and many more. The Whitlam Mob addresses some crucial questions- What was the night of the long prawns? Who was the playboy of the parliament? And who was 'the toe-cutter'? This is Mungo at his best- vivid and barbed, nostalgic but always clear-eyed.
