Tsiolkas’ Book Taps Aussie Swim Culture

tsiolkasThe new book written by Greek author Christos Tsiolkas is expected to be published in October, his fifth, and five years after his previous novel The Slap.

The main character is an Australian swimmer who made ​​many sacrifices to become an Olympic champion, “but life had other plans.”

The theme is timely after the recent revelations about doping in sport in Australia. The report by Australia’s Crime Commission describes doping by “multiple players” in many teams, across a number of different professional sports.

His last book made ​​him widely known and was a best-seller. The book won the Commonwealth Writers Prize and went through the long list of great British Booker Prize, while it also became an award-winning TV serial. Tsiolkas’ other works include Dead Europe, which was honored by the Australian newspaper Age and became a film, The Jesus Man. His first book Head On, was turned into a film by the Greek-Australian film director, Anna Kokkinos.
