The Slap TV Tie In Edition, Christos Tsiolkas, 9781742375601, Books in Australia

By: Doubleday  09-Dec-2011

Now an Australian TV series starring Melissa George and Alex Dimitriades, The Slap is written by Christos Tsiolkas, "one of Australia's pre-eminent contemporary novelists" (The Age), the bestselling author of Loaded and Dead Europe.
At a barbecue in suburban Melbourne, a man slaps an unruly boy. The boy is not his own. It's a single act of violence, but the slap reverberates through the lives of everyone who witnesses it. Told through the eyes of eight people present at the barbecue, this acclaimed bestseller is an unflinching interrogation of the life of the modern family.
The Slap was called "one of the three or four truly great stories of the new millennium" by author John Boyne.
