Title: We Could Be Heroes by Philip Ellis

Genre: Contemporary Fiction (384 pages) Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons (an imprint of Penguin Random House) - Release Date: June 4, 2024


Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear high heels and a wig.

Patrick's acting career is on the rise, and the superhero movie he's currently filming is the key to putting him on the map… if the endless reshoots ever stop. Will is a secondhand bookseller and part-time drag queen extraordinaire who’s just trying to live his best life—and maybe find love along the way.

They come from different worlds, but after a chance encounter on a particularly chaotic night out, a curious friendship forms between the two men. At least, that’s what they tell each other it is. Sure, Patrick finds Will captivatingly hilarious, and Will can’t help but keep thinking about who is really behind the perfect mask Patrick shows the rest of the world, but nothing could ever really happen, right? Superheroes don’t date drag queens, after all.

When reality comes crashing into the fantasy world they’ve built together, Will has to make a choice between the man of his dreams and being true to himself. Can Patrick be the hero Will’s been waiting for, or will Will be the one to save Patrick, after all? Uproarious and touching, We Could Be Heroes is an ode to queer joy and a romance that just might save the world.
