The strangely pale-faced child of a gypsy whore, Scaramouche was always fated to be a clown. But from his birth, at midnight on New Year's Eve 1899 in a dingy Trinidad knocking shop, his life has been a vivid odyssey through extraordinary adventures, crumbling empires and the darkest episodes of the 20th century. Now, as the champagne corks fly on millennium eve, Scaramouche is about to give his last and most important performance. He steps out from the circus ring, peels away his outer disguises and reveals the loves, brutalities, ecstasies and tragedies that created the seven white masks of Scaramouche Jones.
