Availability: This title is currently not available.


Twenty-one years ago, a domestic tragedy catapulted Terrence Einhorn Kerrigan from his comfortable life as a professor and family man in America and landed him in Copenhagen, where he's made his living as a writer, editor, and translator. Now in his mid-fifties, he has begun a project which he hopes to drag out for the remainder of his days: a catalogue of Copenhagen's 1,525 serving houses, a volume in the series The Great Bars of the Western World.To assist him, he has engaged the voluptuous, green-eyed Research Associate, to whom he is desperately attracted, and with whom he desperately does not want to fall in love; love, his past has proved, is too painful. Kerrigan must, at last, escape the Associate and the Copenhagen, fleeing to Dublin. But can the city he's adopted, wandered, and mapped, and the woman with whom he's done it, really be extricated from his life? The third work in Thomas Kennedy's Copenhagen Quartet, Kerrigan in Copenhagenassumes the form of Kerrigan's bar guide, with each chapter taking place in a different serving house. But the novel develops into a legitimate kind of guidebook to the city of Copenhagen: its culture, its history, its beer, books, cigars, its art, architecture, streets and parks and especially its people-the characters who swirl around our reluctant lovers, and the pair themselves, who form the deeply human core of this wonderfully original novel.
