あらすじ・解説

The controller stood back. 'Right,' he said. 'Spin 'em!' The man flipped the piece of wood and the coins spun up into the air above his head and dropped down on to the carpet. There was silence.

Wake in Fright tells the tale of John Grant's journey into an alcoholic, sexual and spiritual nightmare. It is the original and the greatest outback horror story. Bundanyabba and its citizens will forever haunt its listeners.

still a great book

I first read this book back in high school many many decades ago. it was an English requirement to read, and so I read it and loved it. if you love Australian authors you love this one too.
and as always they picked a great narrator too.👍

Superb writing, grotesque caricature.

Kenneth Cook's depiction of rural Australia is deliciously grotesque. I found the protagonist quite unlikable and struggled to realate or sympathise with his plight, however I enjoyed the writing and the subtle menace that Cook imbues in seemingly ordinary people and situations.

Crazy, disturbing, fantastic

Wake In Fright is the story of school teacher John Grant and his weekend of horror and despair stuck in the Australian outback. It is also the story of the influence of a hermetic community on a stranger. Written in 1961 and required reading in Aussie schools at one time, it is a story that has a sense of foreboding hanging over it constantly. I wanted to speak to John at several key moments in the book - "no, don't do it, John!".

Yet he does do it. He can't seem to say no and gets involved in all sorts of things he shouldn't and this is why the book is so good. Who hasn't succumbed to peer pressure? Who hasn't been in a situation that seemed insurmountable? Who hasn't needed to escape from some place or someone at one stage in their life?

A book I think many people could relate to and therefore love for its craziness.
