This book came out 5-7 years ago and was by a male author. What I remember is that it is set in San Francisco, I think before the turn of the last century. The guy is almost elderly when he meets the very young girl. He progressively gets younger, she gets older. I think his name was Max but I'm not positive.
Thanks for any help you can give!

Umm... Is it that short story by Fitzgerald that has been made into a movie recently? The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?

Isn't that the new movie that Brad Pitt is in -- Benjamin Button?
Ooops probably should have read the previous posts first.

This is not the right book, but an additional suggestion. You might like Portrait of Jenny by Robert Nathan. Very ethereal and romantic, I loved it.

Max Tivoli, that's the one! Thanks so much to everyone- and I need to read the Fitzgerald.
