“What Calleja does, with Kissirtu Kullimkien, is weave real-life stories into a poignant fiction, imbuing Malta’s penchant for turning open spaces into ‘fletsijiet’ with the human pathos it so desperately needed.
There are no sermons, no exhortations from atop some high horse. At no point do we feel that the author is trying to make up our mind for us with Kissirtu Kullimkien.
Kissirtu Kullimkien is very sobering reading, subtly painting a picture of an island gone made with greed and of where that is taking us. More than an indictement, it is the equivalent of a Ghost of Christmas Present that is fast racing to a definitely grim Future, unless the people put their foot down now.This book is a very good start in making that first step.”
