Editorial Reviews

Review

"It reads almost like fiction, but it isn't. Dennehy's memoir is an eye-opener to what most of us pay no attention to. It's gripping, intense, and real."

-Jenya Grace, author of The Battle for Oz

"John Dennehy's memoir of love, life and illegally crossing borders in beautiful, but tumultuous Ecuador is told with vulnerability, honesty and is absolutely riveting.

-Katie McKenna, author of How to Get Run Over by a Truck

"In Illegal John Dennehy admirably wrestles with some of the most pressing matters of our current age: What is the character of the United States? What happens to an idealistic young American abroad? Borders, national identity, justice. And then love, cutting through it all. How do two young lovers hold on to each other in the maelstrom of national politics and the swings of history? As Dennehy throws himself into the political and social life of Ecuador, you will see some of yourself in him."

-Cullen Thomas, author of Brother One Cell

"Powerful and relatable. The pages resonated with me in a way I can't quite quantify. Beautiful to see someone put themselves out there like this."

-Zac Thompson, author of Weaponized

"Compellingly written, Dennehy's memoir of a tumultuous time of love and danger promises to be an exciting read with an ending that might land somewhere on the dark side of happy. Unlike so many journalists who can't leave the just-the-facts-ma'am style behind when they attempt book length manuscripts, Dennehy writes like a master storyteller."

-S.T. Ranscht, co-author of Enhanced
