“L-interventi ta’ Schembri joħolqu assalt sħiħ kontra pajjiż li l-fusien tiegħu huma lubrikati bl-ipokrisija, in-nepotiżmu u l-korruzzjoni”  - Mario Azzopardi Għoxrin sena mill-ewwel edizzjoni ta’ Taħt il-Kappa tax-Xemx, f’din l-edizzjoni ġdida l-ktieb kult ta’ Karl Schembri li tefa’ s-soċjetà kollha fuq is-siġġu tal-akkużat, f’każ li għadu miftuħ beraħ illum daqskemm kien meta ħareġ l-ewwel darba. Mark Micallef huwa ġurnalist impenjat, imma wkoll ġurnalist sturdut. Tal-inqas l-editur tiegħu mal-ġurnal Ix-Xemx hekk jaħseb, u talbu jieħu ftit ġimgħat frank biex jiġi f’tiegħu. Għax kif jaqbad jispjega li r-rapport li deher b’ismu ma kienx tiegħu? Jew l-Gvern Malti qed iħaffer mina sigrieta? Dawn huma l-istqarrijiet tal-ġurnalist li, fit-tfittxija tiegħu għall-verità, sab ruħu maqbud f’nofs l-istejjer li kien qed jirrapporta.

    “Karl kien ra ’l bogħod, nerġa’ nikkonferma … Il-qari mill-ġdid tagħhom, snin wara li ħarġu l-ewwel darba, mhux biss jikkonferma l-kwalità intrinsika tax-xogħol, iżda jiftaħ bibien interessanti u importanti dwar il-kontenuti u l-attitudnijiet. Fil-qosor … Kappa jbassar u jħabbar qagħdiet, kważi bi preċiżjoni klinika, li llum saru l-ħobżna ta’ kuljum malli niftħu għajnejna għal jum ieħor.”

    Taħt il-Kappa tax-Xemx is one of those books that blew my mind when I first read it some 20 years ago … I really envy those who are reading it for the first time.
    “My advice is not to take this book at face value and to dig a bit deeper … But the beauty of Taħt il-Kappa tax-Xemx is that even if you take it at face value, the ride will be a rewarding one. When all is said and done, no matter what you choose to take from it, Taħt il-Kappa is a damned hilarious read.”
