Bob and Blanche. Who. Cares?
[Hazel Hawke is] less active now and will not be able to grasp d’Alpuget’s finely wrought account of her clandestine affair with Bob Hawke – before and during his prime ministership – divulged in a pocket-sized, hot-pink book entitled On Longing. It’s the author’s first literary offering since she abandoned the mask of mistress to marry the man she calls her Muse, or M for short.
I'm sure Bob's children will be able to grasp d'Alpuget's "finely wrought account of her clandestine affair".
