The Hummingbird

Marco Carrera is a hummingbird ― constantly on the move, even when seemingly stationary. With psychological finesse, this novel, which won the 2020 Premio Strega, recounts his life and that of his family. »›The Hummingbird‹ is combative and amusing, is both comedy and tragedy, with one laughing eye and one crying eye. Veronesi reinvents the family novel genre.« [Le Monde]
