In The Whitlam Mob, Mungo gives a sharp, witty and very personal account of the main characters of the Whitlam years - from Gough and Margaret to Lionel Murphy, Bill Hayden and Jim Cairns. Due attention is also given to 'the other mob' in opposition - Malcolm Fraser, Billy McMahon, John Gorton and more.

Replete with anecdote, analysis and gossip, The Whitlam Mob addresses some crucial questions: What was the night of the long prawns? Who was parliament's leading pants man? And who was 'the toe-cutter'? Accompanied by a selection of cartoons and photos, this is Mungo at his best: vivid and barbed, nostalgic but always clear-eyed.
