Mary is an eight-year-old girl growing up on the outskirts of Melbourne. She has a close friendship with her pen pal, Max Jerry Horovitz, a 44-year old New Yorker who suffers from a form of autism known as Asperger’s syndrome. Max has no friends other than Mary, who sends him letters from a world that is entirely unknown to him. And Mary has Max, to whom she can put all her burning questions. In their letters, Mary and Max discuss such topics as their favourite cartoon, taxidermy, and their unease about the world at large.
