An evening with Christos Tsiolkas

31 May @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We are thrilled to welcome bestselling author, Christos Tsiolkas to the shop, to celebrate the publication of THE IN-BETWEEN.

Join us on Friday 31st May, 7pm when we’ll be joined by bestselling author, Christos Tsiolkas, celebrating the publication of his latest books, THE IN-BETWEEN. Christos will be in conversation with Jordan from the bookshop, before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of his books.


‘It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a date,’ he says, pocketing his own phone. ‘Please ignore anything I say for at least the first ten minutes.’
Ivan’s laugh is loud, delighted. ‘I know, mate, I’m bloody terrified.’

Two middle-aged men meet on an internet date. Each has been scarred by a previous relationship; each has his own compelling reasons for giving up on the idea of finding love.

But still they both turn up for the dinner, feel the spark and the possibility of something more. How can they take the risk of falling in love again. How can they not?

A tender, affecting novel of love, of hope, of forgiveness by one of today’s most fearless and truthful interpreters of the human heart, the acclaimed bestselling author of THE SLAP and DAMASCUS.


Christos Tsiolkas is the author of four novels: Loaded (filmed as Head-On) The Jesus Man and Dead Europe, which won the 2006 Age Fiction Prize and the 2006 Melbourne Best Writing Award. The Slap won the Commonwealth Writer’s Prize 2009 and was shortlisted for the 2009 Miles Franklin Literary Award and the ALS Gold Medal. He is also a playwright, essayist and screen writer. He lives in Melbourne.
