Graham Richardson to Launch Paul Howes' Confessions of a Faceless Man


On Monday, 8 November, at 10.30am for 11am, The Hon Graham Richardson will launch Confessions of a Faceless Man, the election campaign diary by AWU boss, Paul Howes. Most appropriately, the event will be held at The Golden Century Restaurant, 393-399 Sussex Street, Sydney, and guests will include Howes' political and union colleagues and other Sydney personalities.

The 2010 federal election campaign had more twists, conspiracies and betrayals than a ripping political thriller, and Confessions of a Faceless Man is the day-by-day account of the campaign by one of Labor's `faceless men'.

Paul Howes, head of the Australian Workers' Union, was accused of assassinating Kevin Rudd and installing Gillard in the top job--the King is dead; long live the Queen.

Howes writes openly about his role in the leadership coup and reveals his experience inside Labor's campaign.

In an unashamedly partisan and amusing account, Confessions of a Faceless Man chronicles the highs and lows, the stuff-ups, the leaks and the nuts and bolts of a modern Labor election campaign.

This is Howes' first book--an unvarnished, brutally honest, at times laugh-out-loud account of how Labor won 2010.

Paul Howes is National Secretary of the Australian Workers' Union. A union official since the age of seventeen, he became the youngest leader of Australia's oldest union in 2007. He lives in Sydney and is married to Lucy. They have three children: Sam, Zoe and Sybilla.
