At a barbecue in a suburban Melbourne home, a four-year-old boy is slapped by a man who isn't his father. The fallout from this split-second incident is huge, and the novel comprises separate narratives from eight of those present, delving into their individual psychologies with an intensity that is gripping. Although the majority of the characters are middle-class and in their forties, there is a breadth of demographic which suggests Tsiolkas is attempting a psychological autopsy of an entire culture. As well as the Greek-Indian couple, there are British people, Muslims, white Australians and Aborigines, grand-fathers and teenagers, gay men and lesbians. Tsiolkas is clearly interested in how these disparate groups interact, and if this book is anything to go by, the answer is not very well. Prejudice, racism and homophobia are rife, and Tsiolkas writes with a refreshing lack of sentimentality. A compelling journey into the darkness of suburbia.
