Summary :

Max Tivoli is born old in 1871 and ages backwards. On his first trip to the circus, the aged-looking Max meets his best friend Hughie, a kid as out of step in his own way as Max, but aging in the other direction. When Max is just 16—and looks 54—he meets his lifelong love, Alice Levy, then just 14, and spends his youthening years trying to find her again.

  • "The secret to Greer's success in Max Tivoli is his delightfully overwrought voice, his willingness to luxuriate in Victorian conceits of self-pity, love, and confession. For a modern author, it requires balancing on the razor's edge between parody and profundity, and Greer sways precariously between the two in a way that makes it impossible to take your eyes off him."
