Merlin welcomed a new exciting author to its list at the Malta Book Fair 2011: Joe Pace's debut novel It-Tielet Teorija was launched on the Merlin stand at the Book Fair.
A deliciously dark novel quite unlike a lot of other contemporary fiction, the novel is set in the unlikely twin worlds of hospitals and tv series filming. Pace's distinctive voice runs through a day in the life of the main character, a doctor by day and actor by night, as he copes with his obsessions, relationships and circle of friends.
It-Tielet Teorija was launched in a casual get-together (Niltaqgħu) on the Merlin stand, where guests got to hear a couple of extracts from the novel, as performed by Joe Pace himself together with Shirley Blake and Rachel Portelli.
Wine, gourmet pastizzi and homemade yummy chocolate truffles completed the evening, as the author signed the first copies of his book.
