Greek Australian author Christos Tsiolkas honoured on The List: 100 Arts and Culture 2022


Greek Australian author, Christos Tsiolkas, has been honoured on this year’s top 100 Arts and Culture List by The Australian in the publishing category.

The list has been curated by a list of panels including Caroline Overington, Matthew Westwood, Bridget Cormack, Andrew McMillen, Jane Albert, Hannah-Rose Yee, Ashleigh Wilson and Rosemary Neill.

Tsiolkas has been recognised for his work “The Slap”, which is a book about a feud that erupts amongst friends after a man slaps another couple’s child.

A still from the 2011 tv adaptation, The Slap.

The book won the author four awards including the ABIA Literary Fiction Book of the year and in 2011, was adapted into an eight-part series starring Melissa George, Essie Davis and Alex Dimitriades.

Tsiolkas’ first novel, “Loaded”, was about a gay Greek boy in Melbourne and that book was adapted in 1998 to a feature film called ‘Head on’.

The author constantly has things in the works and stays active with his writing whether it is for books, or even films he writes.

Most recently, Tsiolkas’ film ‘Little Tornadoes’, a film he co-wrote about growing up amid the cultural changes of the 1970’s in Australia.
