The Shadow of the Hummingbird

By Athol Fugard

Paperback £13.99

A charming meditation on the beauty and transience of the world around us, by acclaimed playwright, actor and director Athol Fugard.

The Shadow of the Hummingbird tells the story of an ailing man in his eighties and the afternoon spent with his ten year-old grandson. Fugard continues to mine the depths of the human spirit with profound empathy and heart.

This edition includes an introductory Prelude by Paula Fourie with extracts from Fugard’s unpublished notebooks.
