Jason and Drew had been best mates for nearly ten years, since the ninth grade.

The Secret Lives of Them, Jean-François Vernay , 2009 single work review
— Review of The Slap Christos Tsiolkas 2008 single work novel ;
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'.
(p. 183-185)
