The Slap

By Tsiolkas, Christos

Toronto: HarperCollins, 2008. "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 on to that which connects us all: the modern family and domestic life in the twenty-first century. The Slap is told from the points of view of eight people who were present at the barbecue. The slap and its consequences force them all to question their own families and the way they live, their expectations, beliefs and desires. What unfolds is a powerful, haunting novel about love, sex and marriage, parenting and children, and the fury and intensity - all the passions and conflicting beliefs - that family can arouse." [Previous owner's name on ffep]. 1st Can Ed. French Wraps. Very Good.

Ikons : A Collection of Stories

By Papaellinas, George

Australia: Penguin, 1986. "Even after thirty years the Mavromatis family cannot understand their life in Australia. Until Peter Mavromatis's first exhibition as an "ethnic" photographer clarifies everything. In this collection of stories we follow the family fortunes. Old YiaYia had already lived her life in the old country. Christois and Elli wage a private war as confused as the motives which brought them from Cyprus. For Peter, their Austalian born son and proud hope for the future, life is a contest of shallow cultural identities and allegiances. Ikons is a vivid and contentious portrayal of a family united only by society's view of them as outsiders." Remaoinder mark. First Thus. Pbk.. Very Good.
