2009 3rd Place Winner, John Marsden Young Writer’s Award.
This is a tale of two troubled youths as they travel the road equipped with nothing but some food, a gun and a bag of bullets. Delirious, fast-paced and sometimes frightening, this award winning short story puts you right alongside misguided Victor and his reluctant brother as they journey through a broken world of petty crime, dreamy wolves and stolen cars.
Created by David Bobis, the author of Child and I Keep Getting F****** Robbed, Curtain Cape is yet another example of the writer’s uncanny ability to craft highly entertaining short stories that resonate with you much after being read.
