Description:
Starting a new life in a new city, in a new country, Ying Ying and her family adopt a stray dog, the much loved Max. As changes in Ying Ying's life bring frustration and sadness as well as surprise and joy, quite unexpectedly she realises that what remains most constant in her life is her dog. Starting with Max captures the journey of a migrant in mid-life crisis struggling to come to terms with her new identity in a foreign land. As the story unfolds, Ying Ying finds herself driven by her dog to pursue a life of action and meaning, persistence and determination. She must not just survive, but thrive. In an intriguing way, her faithful four-legged friend has become her source of wisdom and strength at this most fragile period of her life. It is the relationship between Max and Ying Ying that makes this story unique. Max shows extraordinary sensitivity and becomes a wonderful companion, contributing vastly to its owner's new life. This is not just another book about life with a dog, but a quest for deeper understanding of humans and their dogs.
In her contemplation of her four-legged friend and all that he is, Ying Ying reflects on matters of significance such as love, faith, beauty, ageing, mortality and creation.
