Framed is a collection of raw emotion easy to identify with, and which promptly touches the inner core of our being. Together with reflections about natural and social phenomena, it is set in and around day-to-day life, exploring the complexities of family relationships, food, art and observations, and little nuances which we often fail to notice in the rush of life.
“The reader cannot but admire Maria Grech Ganado’s penetrating gaze in poems about childhood, family, love, loss and ageing, many with philosophical musings. She manages to frame life with a sideways slant and wit, and even in the darkest of subject matter, there is an iridescence which shines through. A poet to live by — she deserves to be recognised among Europe’s leading women poets — certainly one of poetry’s wisest women.” - Menna Elfyn FRSL • Welsh poet and playwright
  With funding by the Malta Book Fund (National Book Council)

“What I love in all of your poems I’ve read, is the way you connect poetry with everyday experiences, simultaneously the depth of what can be felt by a human being and a kind of narrative about what happens, how behind the shape of each verse, there is the real meaning, the multiple dimensions the self lives, both seen and unseen.”
— Frédéric Dumond
