He loses everything. In front of everyone. Where can he go from here? Barracuda is the blazingly brilliant new novel from the author of the phenomenal bestseller The Slap.
Christos Tsiolkas is the author of Loaded, The Jesus Man, Dead Europe and The Slap, which won the Commonwealth Writer's Prize 2009 and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010. He lives in Melbourne.
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 *
Terrific -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
Masterful, addictive, clear-eyed storytelling about the real business of life: winning and losing -- Viv Groskop * Red Online *
This involving and substantial tale - surprisingly tender for all its sweary shock-value - is carried swiftly along by Tsiolkas's athletic, often lyrical prose. * Daily Mail *
Christos Tsiolkas is in his natural element, with sentences gliding elegantly until the reader is utterly submerged in this absorbing story * Metro *
This is a compelling, moving novel about identity, failure and the redemptive power of family * Mail on Sunday *
