Fun ride all the way.  I was transported back to years (not so long) ago.  The quick mind and tongue of the author kept me entertained.  I recommend this for anyone who wants a story that takes you through all emotions.  Thank you for a wild ride.

Peter Sherwood's first novel, A Pale of Memory, was well worth the wait. A dark foray into mid 1990's New York and set against the devastating backdrop of the AIDs epidemic, our protagonist, Scott, is at turns, coy, snide, smart and broken. Dodging the pitfalls of the gay dating scene while battling booze, commitments, friendships and a career, he opens our eyes to the darkest nature of humanity. How low can a person go? Very, apparently. This book had me snorting in laughter and holding back tears at the turn of a page. I read it in one sitting and urge you to do the same - truly unputdownable. Buy it, have your friends and family buy it and let's all hope Peter doesn't take so long writing the next one!

A real page turner, brilliantly executed! This story about love and obsession is haunting and laced with a slash of wicked wit as author Peter Halsey Sherwood leads us to a wild, observant trip down "memory" lane, seen through the eyes of a voyeur in mid-90's Manhattan.

Imagine Hitchcock as a writer friend of yours in the mid-90s, there by your side and in your head capturing your perturbed thoughts, your deep dread and that feeling, that underlying current of perpetual terror while wondering as you made your way through relationships in New York’s gay plague-years culture.  Well, Sherwood has crafted this mystery in the form of a brilliant novella in which he cloaks the template of challenges a new relationship brings with these anxieties that kept us up at night and tortured us. The Pale of Memory is written by someone you’ll find is now a new master of the genre. No lie.
