One of Australia's most important novels takes its rightful place on the country's cultural map, with this new edition published to coincide with the restoration and relaunch of the classic movie.
Now featuring a foreword by Peter Temple and afterword by David Stratton, Wake In Fright's confronting depiction of outback life still packs a punch. Bush school teacher John Grant is on his way to Sydney for the holidays. During a stop-over at the rough outback town of Bundanyabba, he ventures into the smoky, shadowy interior of the local pub, and so begins his descent into a nightmare of alcohol-induced self-destruction and denigration until it seems that a bullet may be his only escape.
"A brilliant novel made into one of Australia's seminal movies" – David Stratton
