Today is finally the day for Barracuda to reach shops, we’ve been looking forward to sharing this with the world for A LONG TIME. And many readers have been eagerly awaiting it too. So it is wonderful to finally hear people discussing the book and the ideas that Christos has captured in this breathtaking novel.
Started Barracuda today. Can hardly put it down. It’s so very good. @abc730

Finished Tsiolkas’ latest novel, Barracuda. I recommend you purchase it when it’s released in October. His writing has such raw power.

Media too has been going into overdrive, with Christos giving a frank interview on ABC’s 7:30 report and following that up with spots on Jon Faine’s Conversation Hour and Radio National’s Books and Arts Daily.
Last night Christos launched the book, and tonight he talks to Wheeler Centre director Michael Williams at The Capitol Theatre in Melbourne before setting off around the country touring bookstores and events – full details on the Barracuda website.
Have a read of an extract and if you want to hear from Christos make sure you check out upcoming events, or watch him discuss some of the themes in the book below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments and we’ll be having a Barracuda online book club later on in the year so be sure to check back for that.
