Acclaim for The Slap:

'A cool, calm, irresistible masterpiece' Chris Cleave
'The Slap is nothing short of a tour de force' Colm Toibin
'Honestly, one of the three or four truly great novels of the new millennium' John Boyne
'As addictive as the best soap opera' Daily Mail

Acclaim for Barracuda:

'Tsiolkas writes with compelling clarity about the primal stuff that drives us all: the love and hate and fear of failure... A brilliant, beautiful book. If it doesn't make you cry, you can't be fully alive.' (Sunday Times)

'I finished Barracuda on a high: moved, elated, immersed... This is the work of a superb writer who has completely mastered his craft but lost nothing of his fiery spirit in so doing. It is a big achievement.' * Guardian *
