The Outside Chance of Maximilian Glick
A NovelBook - 1982
It's Steelton, Manitoba, in 1964. Thirteen-year-old Maximilian Glick is struggling with the complexities of adulthood while preparing for his Bar Mitzvah. He feels his only hope is the new Rabbi who not only looks pretty strange, but secretly dreams about becoming a standup comic. This slightly different little comedy story is an exploration of intolerance, racism, friendship and self-fulfillment.
