Patricia Salomone will be signing copies of My Pizza and Toffee Apples in the ’50s at Agenda Bookshop in Ta’ l-Ibraġ, just opposite the church tomorrow from 10am to 1.30pm.
The book is dedicated to her mother Anna, who was her inspiration, and to her Alma Mater, the University of Malta, from which, proudly in her mature age, the author recently graduated.
“The relationship between my studies in Contemporary Mediterranean Studies with Italian and my story can be read between the lines…”, she said.
“As one grows older, the memory of the past brings back the voices, sounds, smells, tastes of time gone by. Pizza and toffee apples, incompatible as they seem, represent my life in the 1950s.
“I was the first born child of a very Italian mother and a very British Maltese father, in a Malta that had very nearly lost its Mediterranean identity. Mine is a domestic picture within a wider context – that of a world that was to change forever.”
