Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2011 Reading Group List
“The Slap is not just a story about a four-year-old boy whose misbehavior at a neighborhood 'barbie' in Southern Australia brings on a reaction by someone other than his father. Different opinions about whether or not the slap was warranted rapidly surface among the eight adults present and threaten to destroy loyal friendships. The boy's parents, without the full support of the husband, file a lawsuit against their friend that results in harsh, often unspoken thoughts about marriage, friendships, and love. Tsiolkas writes an honest and passionate story about how one act can change the course of many lives.”
