Sandro Veronesi’s The Hummingbird (Il colibri/(Le Colibri) traces a Florentine family and its experiences of life and its complex emotional challenges.  Told through a myriad of narrative styles, The Hummingbird is a rich portrait of human existence in all its glory, love, and sorrow.

The Hummingbird was awarded the 2021 Premio Strega and the Prix du Livre Étranger 2021 France Inter / Le Point.

‘The Hummingbird is a masterly novel, a brilliantly conceived mosaic of love and tragedy,’ Ian McEwan.

‘Le colibri de Sandro Veronesi est un chef-d’œuvre bouleversant. D’une beauté absolue jusque dans les moindres détails,’ Corriere della Sera.
