Isaac is a true coming-of-age story of miraculous survival, courage and love.
A note from the narrator:
I was greatly moved by Robert Karmon’s novel, Isaac. Reading the first chapter convinced me that Pleasure Boat Studio was fortunate to have the opportunity to publish it. Once it was in print, I became more convinced and jumped at the opportunity to narrate it. Reading Isaac’s words aloud made him more alive to me. I deeply felt that he was speaking through me. Knowing that Karmon had met Isaac and had heard him tell his story gave me a sense that we were somehow bringing young Isaac back to life. This really happened. And what a story it is! Survival is the first word that comes to my mind in thinking about Isaac’s life, but perseverance, courage, love (passion), friendship, and loss are also accurate descriptors of what Isaac went through. I couldn’t escape the thoughts of how I might have fared under the harrowing challenges that the fifteen-year-old Isaac faced. I hope that your experience of Isaac and his story will impact you as it did me. I hope that I have done even a smidgen of justice to bring this young man to life for you. It’s a story that should be shared, a story that can change a reader’s—or a listener’s—life. Thank you, Robert Karmon, for entrusting this story to Pleasure Boat Studio. It has been an honor to bring it out into the world. —Jack Estes, Narrator
