Description

Meet Maxwell Anderson, the boy who never stops growing! Born fighting for his life, an experimental treatment gave him the chance to survive - but with unexpected results. His unusual condition makes him an outcast from his local community and attracts attention from the British Government, sinister international agencies and religious fanatics. Maxwell's father, Mark, suffers personal tragedy, betrayal and heartbreak, and experiences the joys of parenthood and a new romance, as he strives to provide the remotest semblance of a normal life for his extraordinary son. As friends old and new rally to help, Mark is innocently unaware that some people are not quite as they seem. As Maxwell ages and his condition gets ever more bizarre, rival groups battle to control him, a father's love for his son grows ever more intense, and an increasingly desperate situation calls for extreme measures... The Tall Tale of Maxwell Anderson explores themes of how society reacts to a person who is `different', but first and foremost, this is a story of a father's love for his son. This fast-paced, non-technical novel is perfect to escape with and unwind, and will appeal to anyone looking for a story crammed with memorable characters, unforgettable scenes and gut-wrenching emotion.
