The Book of Paul

The Wit and Wisdom of Paul Keating

by Russell Marks

Hardback Publication Date: 31/07/2017

RRP  $14.99 $12.25

I fancy Malcolm [Turnbull] is like the big red bunger. You’re lighting up, there’s a bit of a fizz, then nothing. Nothing.

An updated, gift edition of the bestselling The Book of Paul, presenting the one and only Mr Paul Keating at his straight-shooting, scumbag-calling, merciless best.

Paul lets rip on John Howard: ‘The little desiccated coconut is under pressure and he is attacking anything he can get his hands on.’

On Peter Costello: ‘The thing about poor old Costello is he is all tip and no iceberg.’

On John Hewson: ‘[His performance] is like being flogged with a warm lettuce.’

On Tony Abbott: ‘If Tony Abbott ends up the prime minister of Australia, you’ve got to say, God help us.’

And that’s just a taste
