AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Jean-Francois Vernay finds the core event of the novel, an adult slapping an unruly child at a party, to be too flimsy to sustain the novel's 488 pages. With Tsiolkas's style in this novel seemingly informed by 'soap opera culture' spiced up with unconvincing 'slap and tickle scenes', Vernay suggests that readers who have enjoyed his previous works should 'slap the book on the table and eagerly wait for the next one'.
