Fiona West has written a stunning debut novel: Perpetual Wake. When career makerand breaker Paul Creel reviews the manuscript, he finds his life represented inshocking detail. He finally feels understood.

The impressed Creel invites West for acasual ‘wine and chat’two days before hisreview is to be published. But when they meet he discovers the book he consideredan elegant insight into the human mind, was intended as a hysterical satire!Creel leaves the meeting determined to ensure that West's book will be buriedbefore the year is out. But West is a tougher rival than he expects and so a warbegins.

From Australia's hottest theatrical outfit: The Last Great Hunt,comes PERPETUALWAKE, a surreal dark comedy aboutthe depths people sink to in order to concealtheir shame.
