Stejjer għall-Ħadd’ by Charles Briffa

Horizons, Malta, 2010

This absorbing collection of short stories is full of provocative characters secretly nursing a desire or an ambition. And out of such intriguing characters, Charles Briffa composed appealing stories to reflect contemporary life and unusual instincts. He brings home the charged atmosphere of contemporary society with severe, biting comments. The stories affirm the powers of instinct and intuition in the struggle against the constraints (or is it injustices?) of society. The short story is very popular in Maltese and Stejjer għall-Ħadd (Stories for Sunday) is an open book, as it explores social facets that crush the individual.
