Publisher's Summary

A likable, intelligent high school senior, Mateo Bernard is new to Little Rock. Cody Redan has lived there all his life. Yet, when they meet, there's a familiarity, a sense they've known each other before. 

By turns funny, romantic, insightful, and sad, this evocative novel brilliantly recreates the landscape of late adolescence, when friendships seem eternal and loves reincarnate. Memory and Madness is a unique contribution to coming-of-age literature.

Early forerunners of this novel were published under the titles and moniker of Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada (Cody) by Keith Hale.

Critic Reviews

"Poetically evokes the pathos of early friendships and the frailty of adolescent dreams." (The Advocate)

"Top of the heap of gay fiction." (Gay Community News)

"The message transcends common reality.... The author charts the victory of substance over appearance, of everlasting truths over transient physical relationships. His characters give off warmth and forthrightness in equal portions." (This Week in Texas (Houston))
