Dapto Library Tuesday Book Club

At a suburban barbecue, a man slaps a child who is not his own. This event has a shocking ricochet effect on a group of people, mostly friends, who are directly or indirectly influenced by the event.
In this remarkable novel, Christos Tsiolkas turns his unflinching and all-seeing eye onto that which connects us all; the modern family and domestic life in the 21st century. The Slap and its consequences force them all to question their own families and the way they live, their expectations, beliefs and desires.
Nine out of 10 times, a book club discussion will serve up surprises. And not necessarily through opinions alone … at times the surprise comes from whom those opinions are expressed. You can join us at Over the Fence for more on our thoughts of this most confronting Australian novel.
