From critically acclaimed, award-winning author Andrew Sean Greer comes a story like no other. The Confessions of Max Tivoli is an ambitious and imaginative novel that leaves an inedible impression on readers.

Max Tivoli is uniquely cursed. His mind ages normally, but he is born with the withered body of a 70-year-old man, and his body ages in reverse. Despite this torment, Max manages three times to cross paths with Alice, the woman who captures his heart. Because he appears to be a different person each time they meet, Max has three chances for true love.

A story of self-discovery and sacrifice, set against momentous historical events, including the Great San Francisco Earthquake and World War I, The Confessions of Max Tivoli is a spellbinding masterpiece.

    " This book didn't live up to the hype for me. I really didn't care for Max or Alice. I'm sick of books where the guy falls in love with a girl for no obvious reason and he chases and chases after her even though she treats him horribly. I thought the idea for the book was good but the execution could have been better. "

    " When I read this I hadn't heard of Benjamin Button, much less read the book -- still haven't. Until I do, I'm going to assume Greer didn't plagerize and will give him credit for a one of the most fascinating and well-written stories I've ever read. "

    " This was a beautifully written story. Went to here the author speak in Aspen, Colorado and enjoyed hearing is insights on writing this book. Do yourself and your mind a favor...read this book. "

    " I read this book quite awhile ago and forgot to add it to my Good Reads list. If you can open your mind to the reverse aging, it's quite a good story once you get into it. I thought Max had a very obsessive and selfish attachment to Alice throughout the book but enjoyed reading of his attempts to re-enter her life at different stages in his life. I've heard this plot has been done before but I haven't read any of those stories nor have I seen The Movie many people compare this book to, so this is a stand-alone novel for me. "
