From the bestselling author of The Slap comes a novel of shimmering intensity - a young man's journey in the land of his ancestors becomes a wild and page-turning flight from a crime that he did not commit, but is doomed to repeat. Part long-forgotten myth, part meditation on the violence and tragedy of contemporary Europe, DEAD EUROPE is an unsettling story about blood lust and blood revenge. 'The energy in the writing, the pure fire in the narrative voice and the fearlessness of the tone (...) establish Christos Tsiolkas in the first rank of contemporary novelists.' Colm Toibin.
