Abstract


  • Talking to people about The Slap reveals a range of responses, but one opinion is shared: author Christos Tsiolkas has “nailed it” in terms of family tensions. If people have struggled to keep watching until the final episode tonight, it’s because the arguing and the dishonesty are too close to home, rather than being implausible.
