Product description


Nicholas Hogg's The Hummingbird and the Bear is a timely and moving examination of passionate love, set against the backdrop of the financial crisis. Personal lives implode alongside balance sheets as the action moves from the safe green hills of the Home Counties to the badlands of the U.S.-Mexico border. Hogg's work eschews the usual macho cliches and finds something new to say about the engine of ambition in the banker's psyche. (Sophie Cooke author of The Glass House.)

Nicholas Hogg comes across the pond to show us another side of our selves. With an eye for the American absurd, Hogg tells us how we love now - impulsively, rootlessly, never far from violence. (Rachel Klein, author of The Moth Diaries)

A transatlantic blend of British prose and American pace... a dangerous love affair with characters who live and breathe, and an ending that left me reeling. Read it with care. (Thom Legendre, author of The Burning)

From the opening page I was drawn into this fast and furious story. (newbooks)
