A young tennis prodigy with a wildcard to the US open, Max Lamm's future looks bright . . . until footage of him enjoying a night of passion with a Salvadorean prostitute in New York appears on the Internet, and categorically derails his career. After a bungled suicide attempt in the Hudson River, he decides to flee America and begin a new life in London.

But Max is jinxed. One night, in Camden, he accidentally kills a fifteen-year-old Pakistani boy who tries to mug him -inadvertently sparking the worst race riots seen in the East End of the capital in over a generation. On the run, Max finally finds refuge beneath Hyde Park. Deep underground, with chaos raging in the streets above, he tries to plot his salvation.

I am Max Lamm is a darkly humorous exploration of family loyalty, disgrace and collective hysteria in an age of terror.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Some of this book is hilarious, albeit blackly so. Brous's writing has the same kind of hyper-articulate, bullying, barrelling energy as that of Philip Roth. * Sydney Morning Herald *
The novel has truckloads of eccentric sex, accidental violence and freakish misadventure, all coalescing into an ironic critique of collective hysteria. Raphael Brous is a funny, eloquent writer. * Saturday Age *
A blackly comedic debut novel. [I Am Max Lamm] is a well-defined and funny story from a writer with a gift for narrative. * Weekend Australian *
