AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Kisses of the Enemy is 'set in the early 1990s as Australia elects its first President, an ex-real estate agent, who then grows fatter with every year in power, until his only constant and trusted friends are the bodyguards who carry him in a specially designed litter'. Source: review.
