The life story Max tells the world is long and involved. It involves an ancestral fortune, a father who dies on his way to change the will, an evil brother who hates Max—all the right ingredients. This heart-wrenching tale lasts three hours; to von Wurtheim’s credit, he always tells it well, and the listeners may find themselves quite engrossed, though by the end of it no one believes a shred of it.
Max is full of half-baked “facts” and theories about the world. He is also incredibly charming, and never, ever pays the bill.
