Trevor Żahra's adults-only cult classic, translated into English by Rose Marie Caruana From the manuscript found by Renzo Camilleri Manduca, Ġenoveffa's grandson, it is clear that his Nan was no meek and gullible woman … as some imagine women in those times usually were. Her writing shows her to have been a rather naughty character, full of passion and vigour, having a zest for life and with a strangely creative streak. Not even her father, a well-known businessman in the drapery trade, could control her; nor her aunt Fawstina with all her saintly goodness, nor her aunt Ġemma with all the practical advice she gave her. Only Zanzu had the power to make her malleable and melt her defences. But no … not only Zanzu! Nanna Ġenoveffa's scribbles are meant exclusively for adults … sometimes they are explicit and at other times obscure … just like Nanna herself!
Trevor Żahra popped out on December 16 in 1947. There is a possibility that he wrote his first book at the age of two months, but we still have to verify that. In his lifetime he has written all sorts of things: children’s books, workbooks, poems, novels, short stories, plays and monologues. He has also illustrated all sorts of things. For his book Stampakelma, he had to draw more than a thousand picture. His books have been published in France, Russia and Norway.
