New Book: In the Company of Angels by Thomas E. Kennedy

“Imprisoned for teaching political poetry to his students, Bernardo Greene has been tortured for months by Pinochet’s henchmen when he is visited by two angels, who promise that he will survive to experience beauty and love once again.

Months later, at the Torture Rehabilitation Center in Copenhagen, the Chilean exile befriends Michela Ibsen, herself a survivor of domestic abuse. In the long nights of summer, the two of them struggle to heal, to forgive those who have left them damaged, and to trust themselves to love.

“Dense with wisdom and humanity, possessed of a timeless, fable-like quality, In the Company of Angels is the powerful story of two damaged souls trying to find their way from darkness toward light — a riveting testament to the resilience and complexity of the human heart.

“This marks the first large-scale US publication of a major American author whose novels, though internationally renowned, have been treasured literary secrets in his own country until now.”

"Thomas E. Kennedy is an astonishment, and his novel is as elegant as it is beautiful, as important as it is profound. A marvel of a read." - Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize
