Jesse Miller wears a lot of masks. He's a freelance writer, a bicoastal academic, a husband, an ex-husband, a father, a son, a lover, a teller of tales, a college kid, a college teacher, a tennis player, a man on the make, a man on the come, a man on the job, a man on the ropes and on the mend.

Of course, Jesse doesn't wear all those masks at once; the interconnected stories that make up The Miller Masks span five decades of his life, but the ghosts of those masks have a way of coming back to haunt him a s he goes from youth to old age experiencing epiphany after epiphany.

Breezy but self-indulgent, Isaacs's 18 linked stories follow Jesse Miller from his Bronx childhood (""What I experienced there was a part of what I have since learned to call the curse of bright children"") to middle age, when he's a Washington, D.C., college teacher.

ForeWord Reviews

The Millers of these twenty tales belong to Jesse Miller, fiftyish, Jewish, husband, adulterer, academic, writer, son and lover, a sardonic, voluble witness to his own life.
