MILLER AND MAX.
My book, Miller and Max, is about the career of George Miller and the making of Mad Max. In other words, the story of two heroes. One is Max Rockatansky (aka Mad Max) a leather jacket-clad road warrior whose adventures in a dystopian future have made an indelible imprint on global popular culture. The second is the artist who created him: George Miller, a softly spoken son of Greek and Turkish immigrants, whose life charts a spectacular course from small-town Australia to the highest echelons of Hollywood.
