Kerrigan is writing a guide book to his adopted city of Copenhagen. Specifically, a guide to the city's drinking establishments-of which there are more than 1,500.Thus, it is a project potentially without end, and one with a certain amount of numbness built into it, through countless drinks imbibed.And that is part of the point: for Kerrigan, an American expat fleeing a brutal family tragedy, has plenty he wants to numb.The only problem with his project is his research associate, a voluptuous, green eyed gal who makes him tremble with forgotten desire.
Kerrigan in Copenhagen is a love story. It is also a deeply human, Joycean romp through a magical city-its people, history, literature, and culture-giving Copenhagen its literary due and establishing Kennedy as a tremendously gifted novelist.
