About the Book

How far can the good life go before it turns bad? This is the moral issue Nadi, the young psychologist from Malta, is made to face when she visits her old friend in Zaragoza. What starts off as a relaxing holiday soon becomes a revelation. The charismatic Maltese ex-pat Luis, her host in Zaragoza, has stumbled upon a lifestyle replete with eccentricities and the imagination. He is living a hedonistic, aesthetic, liberal life with a group of like-minded Spaniards. A group of young people rebelling against life's boring routine. They want to enrich their lives with constant beauty, inspired by Romans, Greeks, nature, al-Andalus, theatre and everything else life has to offer. Nadi is instantly taken in. She adopts Luis' lifestyle. But at what cost? In a time when traditional values and modern principles are colliding more and more, this is a relevant examination of moral values in the 21st century. All in the backdrop of rich, charming and regal Zaragoza.


About the Author

Justin Fenech is a young Maltese writer, who is here releasing his first novel. A burgeoning poet in the local scene, with poetry known for its modern verse and naturalistic themes, here takes his next logical literary step. He has given talks about the role of science in art, has had poems published on various online journals and books, and was one of the winners of the 2010 IEMed Sea of Waves contest. He has also written several essays on the merit of the imagination in art, always with the aspiration to inspire new genres in literature. Among the styles he conceived are Imaginationism (a lot of these ideas feature heavily in this book), Chessboard Poetry, and the eclectic Muralism.
