Praise for The Surprise Party

‘Aaron’s Patrick The Surprise Party is both a well-titled and well-constructed account of what went wrong for Labor ... This lively and detailed rendition is the story of one of the greatest debacles in Australian political history. In the end the surprise was not that Morrison won but that Labor had deluded itself into believing that victory was at hand.’ —Tony Walker, The Australian Financial Review
