Thomas Kennedy

Advance praise for IN THE COMPANY OF ANGELS
"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

"What a gorgeous novel this is! With generous and elegant prose, Kennedy takes us from the darkest, most violent regions of our collective behavior to our most exalted: our enduring hope for something higher, our need to forgive and be forgiven, our human hunger to love and be loved."
       - Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog

"A terrible, wonderful, horrible, truthful, heartbreaking and heart-mending book. The word masterpiece should never be used lightly, but this one is exactly that, a masterpiece written by a master. How can anyone know so much about the human heart?"
       - Duff Brenna, author of Too Cool, The Book of Mamie,
         The Altar of the Body

"Readers can’t help but be touched by the clarity and generosity that are the hallmarks of Kennedy’s very literary and very human stories."
       - Linda Swanson-Davies, Co-Editor, Glimmer Train

"…complex and poignant and resonant, full of literary pleasures."
       - René Steinke, National Book Award Finalist for
         Holy Skirts

"Here is Copenhagen...conscious and sensual...a Cathedral of the night with fantastic chapels of cafés and restaurants...and women...a loving hymn to Copenhagen."
       - Boa Tao Michaëlis, Politiken

"... sumptuous and rich, sensuous and intelligent, witty and joyous, like Copenhagen itself, the living heart of this wonderful novel..."
       - The Literary Review
