About the Book
A compelling, haunting novel about a man experiencing gaps in time, and the pain of living inside an anxious mind. Felix wakes up one day to find himself with a girlfriend he doesn’t recognize, their life together that is unfamiliar. A novel, with his name on the cover, that he doesn’t remember writing. He’s been losing time since university. Sometimes these gaps are minutes, sometimes months. But now he begins experiencing flashbacks, moments where he gets a glimpse of an unsettling future. He will do anything necessary to keep the people he loves safe . . . Hummingbird is a haunting, powerful novel, told in unadorned language that expresses with clarity the pain of living inside a disturbed mind. Like Anakana Schofield’s ground-breaking Martin John, Hummingbird is at times uncomfortable, but written with deep compassion and a sense of urgency.
