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.

The Slap was called "one of the three or four truly great stories of the new millennium" by author John Boyne.
