Win a double pass to see WAKE IN FRIGHT

The brilliant film adaptation of Kenneth Cook’s classic Australian novel Wake in Fright, is currently screening on limited release around the country.

A cinematic classic, long thought to have been lost forever, the last surviving print has been found, digitally restored, and now returns to the big screen in all its glory. Text is celebrating the re-release of the film with a new edition of Cook’s 1961 novel. It has an introduction by Peter Temple, and an afterword by acclaimed film critic David Stratton.

We have five double passes to the film to give away. Simply email books@textpublishing.com.au with the correct answer to this question:

Which leading Australian actor had his cinema debut in the film Wake In Fright?

Include your postal address in the email, and we’ll send a double pass to the first five correct responses.
