This book. This beautiful book.

Despite COVID-19, despite all the uncertainty, despite all the suffering, books exist.

Honoured to have been chosen to contribute to this outstanding anthology. My story "Hummingbird" with its miniature heart gives me a reason to smile, and to hope.

"Its miniature heart beats and beats: I exist, I exist. Its tiny body belies this immense performance. The onlooker, if there is one, feels ashamed, unable to fathom the strenuous act. Everything is hovering and waiting." 

Thank you Hay Festival, thank you Comma Press.
