How much of a survivor, in fact, survives? And how much must remain of a survivor for him also to be called a man? You tell me to remember. All over again. To remember. Perhaps there is nothing left there, doctor. Perhaps it is all gone. Bernardo Greene is attempting to rebuild his life. Imprisoned and tortured by Pinochet's regime for introducing his students to political poetry, he has arrived in Copenhagen at the age of forty-nine, to begin, to begin again. Michela Ibsen also seeks a new beginning. She has survived an abusive marriage and the death of a child, but does not know whether this makes her strong, or even whole. Her latest boyfriend is young, vain and dangerously possessive. Michela's eyes meet Bernardo's over a cup of coffee in the cafe across the lake. During a long Scandinavian summer of endless days and pin-point nights, these two lost souls begin to heal, to forgive and to trust themselves to love. This is a novel about passion in the wake of loss, pain in the wake of truth, and salvation in the wake of despair, "In the Company of Angels" is the mesmeric and quietly devastating masterpiece from internationally celebrated author Thomas E. Kennedy.

Thomas E. Kennedy was born in New York. He has lived in Copenhagen for over two decades, and has worked, among other things, as a translator for Copenhagen's Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims. He is the author of eight novels, as well as several collections of short stories and essays, and has won numerous awards including the Eric Hoffer Award, the Pushcart Prize, the O.
