The Slap - Christos Tsiolkas
Let me expand slightly on that: a very interesting portrait of a small group of middle-aged, middle-class parents, and the consequences upon their lives when one of their number slaps the child of another. I might have wished for a little less crudity, but it was an absorbing read, and it raises some important issues into the light. Recommended.
