‘I’d sort of sworn off endorsing novels, but this is so good, I can’t resist ... James George is a wonderful find and Hummingbird is surely destined for a wide audience’ – Dame Fiona Kidman
In this, James George’s extraordinary second novel, three people, strangers all, are thrown together in a world of sand and ocean and sky on Northland’s Ninety ile Beach.
Jordan – a tattooed man who lives alone at the base of his ancestral hill in a boat that was never launched – has his solitude broken by the arrival of two travelers: one who falls from the air, another who arrives following childhood memories. Kingi, a distinguished battle of Britain veteran, is journeying to keep a promise made on Crete half a century ago. Kataraina, a former prostitute, has left Sydney’s Kings Cross and is finally traveling home. But their journeys and their lives change forever with the arrival of a young woman and her daughter ...
This novel sets global conflict against a sensuous search for love. The action sweeps across fifty years, and the ranges around the globe from New Zealand to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. Hummingbird is a bittersweet exploration of freedom and confinement, parenthood and family, home and belonging.
