Short biography
Keith Hale succeeded where many had failed when he convinced the Rupert Brooke Trust to allow him to edit a collection of the poet's letters that had been sealed for eighty years due to their homosexual themes. That edition, Friends and Apostles, was published by Yale University Press. Hale's first two books also were groundbreaking: His novel Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada, first published in the Netherlands and immediately banned in the United Kingdom during Margaret Thatcher's Operation Tiger, remains unique in its treatment of teen homosexuality, socialism, and existentialism. Hale also published the first and only account of gay life in the Balkans before the walls of Communism crumbled in his travelogue In the Land of Alexander. A fourth book, Torn Allegiances, deals with gays in the military. Hale also has published essays on Dickens, Rumi, Sa'di, Hafiz, David Garnett, and gay Philippine literature. Hale is currently (06/03/2014) Associate Professor at University of Wisconsin, Platteville, with specialization in English education, gay studies, young adult literature, the teaching of composition, modern British and American literature, and Filipino literature. Hale is a native of Arkansas and also has made his home in Austin, Amsterdam, and Guam. Reference the "Reviews and Ramblings: Keith Hale" link above.
