Overview Wake in Fright tells of a young teacher, John Grant, who arrives in a rough outback mining town planning to stay overnight before catching the plane to Sydney. But, on this one hot night in Bundanyabba, Grant decides to go into a smoky, crowded pub. In the company of shadowy strangers, one night stretches to five, in which he discovers gambling, ruins himself financially and plunges headlong towards his own destruction in many other ways. Thus, when the alcohol-induced mist lifts, the educated John Grant is no more. Instead, there is a self-loathing man in a desolate park, dirty, red-eyed, sitting against a tree and looking at a rifle with one bullet left. Although it's forty-eight years since the novel first appeared, it remains fresh, compelling and utterly gripping. Now in a stunning film tie-in edition, this classic will be firmly back on the Australian cultural map.
