Can you think of a name for Julia Gillard’s forthcoming Biography?
Former PM Julia Gillard has announced that she will publish her memoirs while her memory is still fresh “both emotionally and intellectually”.
“I want to weave the politics and personal together. It’s not going to be a biography from the day I was born all through my school years or anything like that, but I do want to draw on my personal experiences and how they informed my politics,” she told The Gutter Trash.
“I also want to try to answer those questions which were so often put to me. How do you do it? How do you get up every day and do it? And also why did you do it? What was really important to you to get done as prime minister?”
Ms Gillard said she was using the writing process to reflect on her time in politics.
“When you’re prime minister a lot of what you say is mediated through others and that is understandable but this will be my words, direct,” she said.
Ms Gillard said that she would be writing the book herself and not using a ghostwriter.
