Friends are invited to our exciting new event with award-winning author Alex Miller. Alex will be talking about his acclaimed new book, Max, shortlisted for the 2021 National Biography Prize.

“As readers of Alex Miller, we feel ourselves to be in the presence of a great heart and a penetrating sensibility, and in the thrall of one of our nation’s most beloved writers.” Tom Griffiths, Emeritus Professor of History, ANU

From the book description:

Max tells of Alex Miller's search -- in turns fearful and elated -- for the elusive past of Max Blatt, a man he loves, who loved him and who taught him that he must write with love. Miller discovers that he is also searching for a defining part of himself, formed by his relation to Max Blatt, but whose significance will remain obscure until he finds Max, complete, in his history. With Max, Miller the novelist has written a wonderful work of non-fiction, as fine as the best of his novels.
