Innota li m’intix qed tixtri ktieb stampat. Qed tixtri ktieb elettroniku (ebook) li tista’ taqra fl-app tagħna għall-mowbajl u t-tablet (iOS jew Android). L-istruzzjonijiet biex tniżżel l-app issibhom fl-email ta’ konferma li tirċievi wara li tagħmel l-ordni. Jekk jogħġbok uża l-istess email kemm biex tixtri l-ebook kemm biex tirreġistra għall-app.   "Fl-internet is-sess hu bla isem, bla limiti u bla kantunieri. Hi, kif int? Niltaqgħu? Kif tidher? Tall, samra u rqiqa. U int? Mibni, twil u ismar. U hemm isfel? Ħeħe, armat ukoll naughty girl. Għandek karozza? Ok, siegħa oħra mela. Imma dan ir-rakkont mhuwiex fuq l-internet jew xi studju tal-bidliet teknoloġiċi f'dawn l-aħħar tletin sena. Dan huwa rakkont tiegħi, fuqi, Lucy. Lucy li ma jafuhiex iktar minn mitejn persuna tgħaqqadhom f'daqqa. Imma kulħadd għandu xi ħaġa interessanti xi jgħid, ħi." Lucy. Lucy mhi ħadd speċjali. Min jafha? Kienet għadha ma taf kważi xejn, fuq kif inhu raġel u kif għandha żżomm banner waqt protesta ambjentali li ’qas taf kif spiċċat fiha. Minn falliment ta' date mal-ewwel raġel li mank biss tiftakar x'jismu, għal George — jew Ġorġ, kif iridha hu … U mbagħad l-oħrajn … U mbagħad, f'salt, ġraw ħafna affarijiet. Min-nies li kellmet, ħbieb li għamlet u pajjiżi li skopriet, Lucy indunat b'dinja kbira u wiesgħa, ħafna ikbar u usa' mill-problemi tagħha. U rrealizzat kemm setgħet tagħżel, dejjem. Ix-xelta setgħet tkun kbira, jew limitata. Imma dejjem setgħet tagħżel. Lucy għadha toħlom. Imma qed tasal xi mkien.
Lara Calleja is from Marsascala. The sea there - and the village that is now a tad overdeveloped - form part of many of her life stories. Writing is Lara’s way of compromising with the world around her, a world that isn’t always kind. She loves open spaces, not only the sea but even wide swathes of fields. Her activism is, she feels, her modest contribution to assuage her conscience on things she believes could and should be better. Her ambitions are to help foster a larger sense of community in a world that has become way too individualistic. And, possibly, to have a small field and couple of rooms there. And who knows what other dreams, expected and not, life may bring about. Meanwhile, she’s won the European Union Prize for Literature - the first Maltese woman to win the coveted award!
