“Kemm nixtieq ngħannqek waħda kbira tal-aħħar, pops. Kemm nixtieq infissdek. Kemm nixtieq ngħidlek affarijiet … u minflok ikolli niskot.” Il-mewt tiġi ħabta u sabta, u tisraq magħha lil dawk li nħobbu u ngħożżu. F’Ħallejtna bħall-Erbgħa fost il-ġimgħa, Sergio Grech jgħix mill-ġdid it-trawma ta’ mewt missieru — kif għexha, x’fissret għalih, il-vjali li għadda minnhom biex seta’ jaċċetta l-firda. Dan hu rakkont, imsawwar bejn realtà u immaġinazzjoni, miktub b’emozzjoni kbira fejn jitħalltu flimkien l-uġigħ, il-firda u l-ħjut dgħajfa tas-serenità.
Sergio Grech likes to comment that his life revolves around words and to a certain extent he is correct. He is an acting head of school, a writer, a researcher and a book editor. Only God knows how many words he has uttered during his teaching career. As a writer, he employed tens of thousands of words.

“Grech’s … writing style is a huge leap …
There’s a lot of emotion and pain in these pages but they are rendered beautifully …
Apart from the plot, the book’s strength lies in the style and it is rare, at least for me, to read about death in a such a lyrical way. Sometimes personal feelings can affect a reader and Sergio Grech manages to pull it off perfectly.”
