The hummingbird : a novel

Image of item
Book

First edition.

"Marco Carrera is 'the hummingbird,' a man with an almost supernatural ability to remain still amid the chaos of an ever-changing world. Though his life is rife with emotional challenges-suffering the death of his sister and the absence of his brother; caring for his elderly parents; raising his granddaughter when her mother, Marco's own child, is no longer capable; loving an enigmatic woman-Marco carries on with a noble stoicism that belies an intensity for living. As the years pass and the arc of his life bends, Marco finds himself filled with joy for the future as the baton passes from him to the next generation. A beautiful and compelling journey through time told in myriad narrative styles, The Hummingbird is a story of suffering, happiness, loss, love, and hope-of a man who embodies the quiet heroism that defines daily life for countless ordinary folk. A thrilling Florentine family saga about the need to look to the future with hope and live with intensity to the very end, Sandro Veronesi's masterpiece-eminently readable, rich in insight, and filled with interesting twists and revelations-is a portrait of human existence, the vicissitudes and vagaries that propel and ultimately define us"--
