The Outside Chance of Maximilian Glick
by Morley Torgov
A classic is back! Max Glick, a small-town teenager with doting grandparents and helicopter parents, dreams of a career as a concert pianist. But his elders favor sensible professions like medicine, law or science. Help comes from his music teacher and a rabbi with ambitions to be a stand-up comic. Winner of the Leacock Medal for Humor, a Torgi Award, adapted for TV and an award winning film.
