Summary

Memory and coincidence play a strong part in this novel as the narrator tries to escape a passionate relationship, and endeavours to piece together the remarkable life of the man who used to own an old trunk, stuffed with letters, bought in a street market.

Knowing Max Summary

Knowing Max by James Long

Haunting novel about time and identity set in post-war 'fast set' Britain. A brilliant new novel that is quite different from the wonderful Ferney but which has some of the same qualities. Memory and coincidence play a strong part as the narrator, himself trying to escape a passionate relationship, endeavours to piece together the remarkable life of the man who used to own an old trunk, stuffed with letters, bought in a street market. Racing driver, lover, officer, but maybe not gentleman, con-man, liar, thief -- as the fascinating portrait of the trunk's owner evolves, so the narrator is drawn deeper and deeper into a story with strange connections to his own life.

Knowing Max Reviews

Praise for Ferney: 'A story of love and self-discovery that resonates across the ages' Nicholas Evans, author of The Horse Whisperer 'The book grips... It belongs to the unputdownable, so goodbye sleep. I love it... the whole story sang' Mary Wesley 'The book is a lovely puzzle, exploring landscape and the lives that shape it, and a profound comment on the way each generation adapts to change. An ambitious and enthralling novel with distinct echoes of Hardy' Mail on Sunday
