The man can't help it. Self-parody, sending up other peoples' expectations, a love of the absurd...Gough's still going strong. To mark another birthday, this book brings together "Life With Gough" and the best of "Whitlam to Winston" with some additional Gough stories to present a bumper edition of The Complete (almost!) Gough. So, once again, here's a larger-than-life Australian, infuriatingly high-falutin' and bizarrely prurient, inflating himself above politics, enjoying himself hugely at the expense of the mean-spirited, the pompous, the ingratiating, the serious and the dull. Barry Cohen has observed Gough Whitlam closely for almost 30 years, for 21 of those years (1969-90) as a Member of Parliament, and for four as a Minister for the Arts, Heritage and the Environment (in the first and second Hawke Governments). He is the author/compiler of "Life with Gough", "Whitlam to Winston" "The Yartz" and "What About the Workers?".
