Christos Tsiolkas's blockbuster novel The Slap made headlines for its subject matter. His much anticipated follow-up, Barracuda, reflects today's headlines about sports stars behaving badly.

A searing and provocative novel Barracuda is an unflinching look at modern Australia, at our hopes and dreams, our friendships, and our families.

About the novel:

His whole life Danny Kelly only wanted one thing: to win Olympic gold. Everything he's ever done - every thought, every dream, every action - takes him closer to that moment of glory, of vindication, when the world will see him for what he is: the fastest, the strongest and the best. His life has been a preparation for that moment.

Should we teach our children to win, or should we teach them to live? How do we make and remake our lives? Can we atone for our past? Can we overcome shame? And what does it mean to be a good person?

Barracuda is about living in Australia right now, about class and sport and politics and migration and education. It contains everything a person is: family and friendship and love and work, the identities we inhabit and discard, the means but which we fill the holes at our centre. It's brutal and tender and blazingly brilliant; everything we have come to expect from Christos Tsiolkas.
