The Slap: Christos Tsiolkas

At a suburban barbecue, a man slaps a child who is not his own...The reverberations call into question the relationships between all those who witness it. At a suburban barbecue one afternoon, a man slaps an unruly 3-year-old boy.
The boy is not his son. It is a single act of violence, but this one slap reverberates through the lives of everyone who witnesses it happen.
This book has received great reviews and I think may win a few prizes. Have a look at the Sunday Times review here:
