    "A compelling, haunting novel about a man experiencing gaps in time, and the pain of living with mental illness. Felix wakes up one day to find himself with a girlfriend he doesn't recognize, a 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--revisiting moments from his past--and 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 novel Martin John, Hummingbird is at times uncomfortable, but written with deep compassion and a sense of urgency."--
