The slap Andrew Tsiolkas

Interesting novel but filled with the most unlikable cast imaginable.  At a family bbq a man slaps a 3 year old who is not his and the book deals with the consequences of this incident on friends and familyand friends attending.  Bits of it I thought were a bit unrealistic.  The elderly Greeks effing and jeffing just seemed unlikely to me.  I got the impression that the author really dislikes everyone from his greek roots because none of them seem to have any redeeming qualities.  A readable book, I wanted to see what happened but not a lovable book
