Humble Boy

by Charlotte Jones

“You know, Felix, bumblebees shouldn’t be able to fly… They don’t obey the laws of physics. But they fly anyway.”


All is not well in the Humble Hive. Thirty-five year old Felix Humble is a Cambridge astro-physicist in search of a unified field theory. Following the sudden death of his father, Felix returns to his middle England home and his difficult and demanding mother, where he soon realizes that his search for unity must include his own chaotic home life.
