Summary

In the Company of Angelsis the powerful story of two damaged souls trying to find their way from darkness toward light. Imprisoned and tortured for months by Pinochet's henchmen for teaching political poetry to his students, Bernardo Greene is visited by two angels, who promise him 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 Angelsis a riveting read and a testament to the resilience and complexity of the human heart. The novel marks the first large-scale US publication of a major American author, known internationally but only within literary circles in his homeland.
