Scintillas: New Maltese Writing 1
Praspar’s first anthology of Maltese writing showcases new prose, poetry and literary nonfiction by a selection of emerging and established Maltese writers from across the world.
Split into two sections, Fables/Ħrejjef and Reflections/Riflessi, the pieces featured in this collection give voice to the anxieties, desires and nostalgic meditations of their authors.
But throughout these narratives preoccupied with change and loss, a glimmer of something meaningful rises to the surface: a mote in a sunbeam, the arrival of morning after a night of insomnia, new life after a bushfire . . . scintillas of hope where previously there had been none.
