Ross McMeekin: The Hummingbirds

Recommended, Don’t Miss

Hotel Sorrento (map) First Hill
Tues Feb 6 at 7 pm


In this literary noir we meet Ezra Fog, a young man who was born into a bird-worshipping cult, but who has since found refuge as the steward of a humongous rental property in Los Angeles. The place is owned by sneaky movie producer and an aspiring actress, Sybil, who can't keep her eyes off Ezra. The two try to manage an affair under the nose of the husband, but that doesn't go over very well. The Hummingbirds is Seattle writer Ross McMeekin's debut novel, which is kind of hard to believe given his own generous stewardship of the literary arts in town. He's published stories in a bunch of top-tier literary mags, teaches at the Hugo House, and for years now he's edited, Spartan, a terrific local literary magazine that publishes minimalist prose.
