What if the perfect life isn't enough? Back in 1970s Winship, Massachusetts, Billy Mogavero was everything his friends wanted to be - tough, sexy, graceful, a leader of young men. After a reunion twenty years later, Timmy O'Kane watches his old best friend charm his way into career success and an ideal marriage, and begins to question his own cosy, sensible life. But then Billy and his pregnant wife are victims of a drive-by shooting, and Timmy is ensnared in a series of terrifying but seductive events that threatens to bring his life tumbling down around him...

MEDIA REVIEWS

"There is a tender immediacy to his prose, and White Guys is studded with beautifully observed moments...alert to the slightest emotional nuance between men, and between husbands and wives and parents and children" * Daily Telegraph *
"Giardina has an extraordinary gift for describing the eddies of power in what seem to be familiar relationships" -- David Hare
"I love men who can write about relationships as tenderly and honestly as Giardina does" -- Julie Myerson
