Masks revisits the locale that Gerald Haslam used so memorably and wonderfully in Okies, a collection of short stories first published in 1972.

In the blistering heat of a San Joaquin Valley summer, Junior Ward learns a lesson that is hardly new or unique, but one that at least some members of every generation must discover afresh in endless patterns and variations: you can’t go home again.

Reviewer's Comments

"Gerald Haslam's novel Masks is a work that extends Mark Twain's and John Steinbeck's line directly."
     -- California English


Masks was published by Old Adobe Press in 1976... which means Gerald Haslam published this book hisownself under the name of "Old Adobe Press." Nowadays, a copy of Masks is reeeeealy hard to find!
