Aiden O'Reilly's stories of one-night stands and fraught relationships, of dreamers, drifters and migrant labourers, an academic crank at war with the legacy of the Roman Empire and a man who assembles a woman from a kit suggest complicated truths about who we are now and where we have come from. Greetings, Hero is a poignant, inventive collection by a writer distinguished by a rich and resonant voice.

"a sprawling and ambitious book that succeeds in giving a voice to the marginalised. The author lays bare these characters as they wander their lonely worlds, braving the elements."
-- The Irish Times
