The Hummingbird

 12.00

by Sandro Veronesi

‘Instantly immersive, playfully inventive, effortlessly wise… a family saga that pays homage to the quiet heroism required by day-to-day existence’

– Hephzibah Anderson, The Observer

The Hummingbird

Translated by Elena Pala

Marco Carrera is ‘the hummingbird,’ a man with the almost supernatural ability to stay still as the world around him continues to change.

As he navigates the challenges of life – confronting the death of his sister and the absence of his brother; taking care of his parents as they approach the end of their lives; raising his granddaughter when her mother, Marco’s own child, can no longer be there for her; coming to terms with his love for the enigmatic Luisa – Marco Carrera comes to represent the quiet heroism that pervades so much of our everyday existence.

A thrilling novel about the need to look to the future with hope and live with intensity to the very end.
