Barracuda is the brilliant new novel from the author of the phenomenal bestseller The Slap.
Tender and savage, Barracuda is a novel about dreams and disillusionment, friendship and family. As Daniel Kelly loses everything, he learns what it means to be a good person - and what it takes to become one.
