Service95 Recommends Trespasses by Louise Kennedy


Louise Kennedy

Service95 Recommends is the home of the books we're loving and reviews from our contributors. Trespasses by Louise Kennedy is a snapshot in history as 1970s Belfast breaks at the seams.

What Patrick Radden Keefe Says: "An elegant and moving novel about a love affair, set against the backdrop of the early days of the Troubles."

What They Say: “Hands down the best book this year was Trespasses by Louise Kennedy. There has been praise for Kennedy’s eye in recreating the Belfast of the mid-70s, but it is the precision of the emotional detail that holds the readers attention: after a while, you forget to exhale” — Anne Enright 

Available on, Waterstones and Barnes & Noble
