Description - Wake In Fright by Kenneth Cook

Introduced byPeter Temple
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 readers.
