Wollongong Bookworms – The Slap; by Christos Tsiolkas

Lots of mixed reactions to this one! Set in modern Australia it tells the story of the repercussions after a member of a family after having slapped a child at a family bar-b-que

What do others out there think about this one?

I thoroughly enjoyed this read- Ruth

  1. A great Australian book! I loved the mixture of cultures, it gives a true indication of today’s social mixes and the different views of the same incident makes for a very entertaining read. One of the most honest voices in Australian literature that I’ve read.
