A prime minister in the making, and a nation on the move. In Lone Wolf: Albanese and the New Politics, The Guardian Australia’s political editor Katharine Murphy offers a new portrait of Anthony Albanese. She reveals a leader who has always had to think three steps ahead, who was an insurgent for much of his professional life but had to learn to listen and devise ‘strategies of inclusivity’ to win the 2022 election.

This event is Auslan interpreted.
