We are each the love of someone's life ...So begins The Confessions of Max Tivoli, a heartbreaking love story with a narrator like no other. Sitting in a sandbox, Max Tivoli is writing the story of his life. He is nearly seventy years old, but he looks as if he is only seven - for Max is ageing backwards. The tragedy of Max's life is that he falls in love when he is seventeen with Alice, a girl his own age - but to her he looks like a middle-aged man, and when he makes advances, she is repulsed. But when he is thirty-five, he actually looks his age, so he has a second chance at love - but tragedy befalls this star-crossed couple and desperate measures are required. Set in San Francisco during the turbulent years at the turn of the twentieth century, this is a haunting tale of love lost, then found - in ways that are least expected.
