When Costello pens his memoir, where will he look for inspiration? The answer, presented unwittingly by The Australian‘s front page today, is “Look behiiiind you”.

Costello’s bookshelf is an interesting study. Caesar stands out immediately (we squinted but couldn’t see The Prince anywhere).

And what if we look closer? Australian Politics, Jonestown, The Latham Diaries, Loner: Inside a Labor Tragedy, Enough Rope DVD, Blown to Bits: How the New Economics of Information Transforms Strategy.



Our powers of sight end there.

Do you recognise any spines (and we don’t mean of the vertebral kind absent in the Member for Higgins)?
