Cooper, Douglas. Amnesia (New York: Hyperion, c1994) 227 p.
This intensely psychological drama of memory lost and regained presents Izzy Darlow. He is a troubled boy who finds meaning and purpose in the school library. The librarian, Mr. Arrensen, is a silver haired man. “His thin shoulders pushed up to the sides of his neck as he sat down; they pointed toward the ceiling like the folded wings of a bat.” (p. 21). Izzy becomes a librarian too.
