Praise

Advanced praise for Trespasses:

“Kennedy’s characters are born and live under dark stars; she illuminates the unescapable harms that occur in that darkness.” Kirkus Reviews

“A beautiful, devastating novel. It feels real and true, and it loves its characters, utterly authentic people trying to live ordinary lives in desperate times. This book will last.” Nick Hornby
 
Trespasses touches tenderly and hits hard – a compulsively readable love story which is also a lament for a society agonizingly divided against itself. Every word rings true.” Emma Donoghue

“Distinguished by a quality rare in fiction at any time: a sense of utter conviction. It is a story told with such compulsive attention to the textures of its world that every page feels like a moral and intellectual event.” The Guardian

“A heartbreaking story of forbidden love.” Sunday Times (UK)
 
“Transcends time and place. . . Trespasses feels so authentic it’s as if nobody wrote it at all; it always existed” Irish Independent

“Kennedy writes with fierce power. . . . her tenderly sharpened prose open to feelings so presently intimate that her sentences take shape like a body beside you. . . . A writer of exceptional empathy, style, and skill.” Irish Times

“A master storyteller. . . . The novel was invented for writing like this.” Sunday Independent
