This is a collection to be read by all those who are still convinced that none of our authors can write as well as some of the best English and American short story writers.

If we had to put Clare Azzopardi into a category, it would be ‘Superhero-writers’ ... Azzopardi has a unique talent of combining literary aesthetic with political activism. For this reason we believe her work should cross national frontiers.
— Luka Ostojic, Literature Across Frontiers
She gives us pictures of a young society living often on the razor’s edge and having precarious relations with the elders of that society. It is a picture that is often grey or even black, but the vigour of the writing and the faceted structure of the stories prevent the readers from ever getting depressed.
