Barnaby Joyce's book due in August

June 13, 2018

Barnaby Joyce called for privacy law changes after doing a tell-all TV interview with Vikki Campion.

Barnaby Joyce's political memoir will be out in just six weeks, promising to tell the inside story of his fall from grace.

'Weatherboard & Iron: Politics, The Bush And Me' is due out in August and the publishers promise it will surprise readers.

The former Nationals leader quit the deputy prime ministership after it was revealed he was having a baby with his staffer-turned-partner Vikki Campion.

"Joyce not only provides a context to this calamitous series of events but also offers an insight into the inner workings of politics and the media in this country," New Holland Publishers said.

The book also looks at his stoush with actor Johnny Depp over his illegal importation of dogs, and his by-election win after the dual citizenship saga.

Mr Joyce recently called for changes to privacy laws after doing a $150,000 tell-all TV interview with Ms Campion.

He declared the book deal on his parliamentary interests register.
