Bill Shorten is the man who would be our next prime minister.
David Marr is the nation's leading writer of political biography.
Marr's Quarterly Essay profiles of Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott ignited firestorms of media coverage and were national bestsellers. In Quarterly Essay 59, he turns his enquiring mind toward Bill Shorten.
This controversial and brilliant new essay looks at the making of Shorten. It also addresses a key question: how does the union movement for good or ill continue to shape the Labor Party?
