Max Tivoli is born as a child in an old man's body. In this story, which begins in 1870's San Francisco, he ages in reverse. He meets the love of his life, Alice, when he is seventeen but he cannot become involved with her because he looks like a man of fifty. He later reunites with her only to lose her again due to his strange affliction. This book was told in the form of a journal written to his young son who will never know him.
