Sam Holloway is a survivor, but he’s not really living. His meticulous routines and quiet lifestyle keep everything nice and safe—with just one exception…
Three nights a week, Sam dons his superhero costume and patrols the streets. It makes him feel invincible—but his unlikely heroics are getting him into some sticky situations.
Then a girl comes along and starts to shatter the walls Sam has built around himself. Now he needs to decide if he’s brave enough to take off the mask and confront the grief he’s been avoiding for so long.
“The Unlikely Heroics of Sam Holloway is a joy to read. Rhys Thomas has managed to take everything I like about literary fiction and put it into one book: humor, humanity, action, and redemption. If I’m being 100% honest, I’m actually a little mad at the guy. I wish I’d written this one myself.” —Matthew Norman, author of We’re All Damaged and Domestic Violets
