Through many books, in a life given shape and meaning by writing, Alex Miller has searched for understanding. What does friendship mean? And how does knowing someone else help us know ourselves? Max is his tribute to a friend whose own history was obscured behind a wall of painful memory.

After Max Blatt’s death, Alex Miller begins a journey both physical and emotional, as he traces Max’s life from Berlin, to Wroclaw, to Israel, to discover the mystery behind Max’s decision not to talk about the past.

It took Alex five years, and it almost didn’t come to completion, when a health crisis temporarily interrupted the writing. Max is an extraordinary book, by a writer who has created a powerful and acclaimed body of work. Alex Miller is in conversation with Prue Mansfield about this unique memoir, a gift to his friend, to literature, and to humanity.
