Christos Tsiolkas, the Greek-Australian author of Loaded and The Jesus Man, has created an international scene with his Commonwealth Writer’s Prize–winning novel The Slap, published here this month. Join him and groundbreaking Booker Prize–winning Irish novelist Colm Toíbín, whose books include The Blackwater Lightship, The Story of the Night, and most recently, Brooklyn, for a discussion of some of the common themes that connect their work—from sexual identity to literary taboos.
