Publisher: Allen & Unwin, ISBN: 9781741758207 Author: Christos Tsiolkas, Format: Paperback, 496pp, 190 x 130mm

In this powerful and riveting novel reminiscent of Liane Moriarty's Truly, Madly, Guilty, literary phenomenon Christos Tsiolkas unflinchingly exposes the inner workings of domestic life, friendship, and parenthood in the twenty-first century, and reminds us of the passions and malice that family loyalty can provoke.

When a man slaps another couple’s child at a neighbourhood barbecue, the event send unforeseeable shock waves through the lives of all who are witness to it. Told from the points of view of eight people who were present, The Slap shows how a single action can change the way people think about how they live, what they want, and what they believe forever.

This book was chosen by urbanist Dan Hill as one of the books that have had the biggest influence on their understanding of Melbourne, as part of Bookshop by Uro's exhibition 'Melbourne Bound: The City in Books'. Click here to see the full selection.
