The spectacular surroundings of the renovated Fort St Elmo provided an excellent background for the launch of Kite’s newest title, ‘Where’s my brother and other confessions’ by Victor Calleja. This first book of confessions is a fascinating insight into the life of an ordinary man told in an extraordinary way.
The book captures Calleja’s deeds, misdeeds and all sorts of incidents, poking fun at anything from funerals and weddings to trips abroad. His fiendish humour includes confessions about his children, wife, family, friends and complete strangers.
Written in Calleja’s eloquent and inimitable style, this book is a collection of anecdotes spanning his sixty years of life, and also highlights the way Malta and its people have changed over the years.
The launch was animated by one of Malta’s leading actors, Thomas Camilleri, who entertained the guests by reading excerpts from Calleja’s book while perched on a ladder.
This latest publication by Kite Group will be available at the National Book Festival to be held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta between the 9th and the 13th November, and can be purchased now on www.kitegroup.com or from leading bookstores.
