One Long Night in the Land of Nod is an explosive, black comedy that cuts to the heart of brotherhood.
Kane, a lawyer from the city, under personal and financial duress, returns to the family sheep station after ten years away. There his father lies dying of leukaemia, and his resentful younger brother, Aaron, awaits him.
A bitter battle over the family property ensues, spanning one long night. This is a gritty, poetic retelling of Cain and Abel—a violent collision of land, greed, and familial obligation—with an unexpected twist.
"Sharp, tight and finely balanced... Graham has drawn characters and relationships which are unnervingly credible."—Samella Harris, Adelaide Advertiser
