The Hummingbird by  Sandro Veronesi

The Hummingbird

Sandro Veronesi

Described as a ‘reinvention of the family saga’, this story goes backwards and forwards in time, from the 1970s to the future of 2030. With fabulist and philosophical elements, the novel explores the existential issues of our times, using dialogues, letters and chat sessions. As a tragi-comedy of stoicism, it is both playful and profound and a cathartic reading experience.


'But they weren’t made for each other. No one is made for anyone else, in all fairness, and people like Marina Molitor weren’t even made for themselves.'--
