Disgrace

by J.M. Coetzee

Mrs. Isaacs

Character Analysis

Melanie's mom. She doesn't think very highly of David, and David knows it. When David visits the Isaacs residence, Mrs. Isaacs barely speaks to him. We learn that she must have been very beautiful once upon a time, because David sees that Melanie and Dezzy get their good looks from her.
