Scintillas: New Maltese Writing 2


This second anthology of Maltese writing from Praspar Press showcases new prose, poetry and literary nonfiction by a selection of emerging and established Maltese writers from across the world.

Cut into two segments, Juice/ Meraq and Skin/Qoxra, the pieces featured in this anthology bring us all the seasons of a life – saplings in the rain, buds in the sun, fruit overripening, the perennial choice to be anchored in the soil or to uproot.

‘With remarkable explorations of colonialism and modern politics; diaspora, transmogrified language and bodies . . . Scintillas 2 boasts a bounty of stellar storytelling across genres and form.’
—Peter Scalpello
