With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, it’s time to platform the leading father figures in our lives. Ahead of the celebrations on Sunday, June 20 - don’t say you weren’t given enough notice! - Hot Press have assembled a list of our favourite dad-focused gifts, especially for him.
From the highly acclaimed author of Bad Day In Blackrock - inspiration for the 2012 award-winning film What Richard Did - comes a darkly funny, and gripping novel about a life spinning out of control.
Ben, the only son of a rich South Dublin banker, is in rehab after being cut off at the age of 27 from his family’s privilege. After floundering through a world of drugs and dead-end jobs, Ben runs into an old school friend who wants to cut him in on a scam: a shady property deal in the Balkans. Will the move solve all of his problems or will the Serbian gangsters take him for a ride?

Read the Hot Press verdict from Pat Carty below:
Kevin Power's Celtic Tiger caper White City is a marvellously entertaining novel, with a cast of characters that "you’d cross the road to hit with a stick."
