My second publiction, Patria, has been a really challenging book to write. Not for the lack of ideas or material, but because it tackles such a delicate topic – migration and racism.
Patria tells the story of four unlikely of friends who decide to take down racism in Malta. Each character with his own motive, the story takes a gruesome turn as we’re taken on this quest for vengeance and misguided justice.
Like Esklussiva Dotkom, this book was also published by Klabb Kotba Maltin, a well-respected publication house with a long list of award winning authors under it’s wing. It has been a privalege to work with them.
Patria was published in November 2017.
Reviews and general feedback
Patria tackles a controversial topic. So before I pushed the idea to my publisher, I knew this book would be very well received by a particular segment of society (perhaps left-winged) but would not go down so well with the more nationalistic, far-right viewed readers. Getting feedback about Patria has been the most rewarding experience in my literary career. I will be posting some reviews soon.
