Foreign resident publishes book
Minster Giovanna Debono was the guest of honour at the launching of A Pomskizillious Recipe Book by Susan Lowe, last Sunday.
After congratulating the writer, Minister Debono expressed her hope that other foreign residents in Gozo would take up a familiar inspiration to promote the island on different levels. She also thanked the foreign residents who have collaborated throughout the years to contribute towards the improvement of life in Gozo.
Inspired by Edward Lear, Ms Lowe noticed that the ‘writer of Nonsense verse’ repeatedly mentioned food in his writings and decided to collect as much material as possible which led her to research collections in the UK and USA. Edward Lear was fascinated by Gozo and described it as pomskizillious, one of his self-invented words. This inspired Ms Lowe to entitle her book A Pomskizillious Recipe Book, which was published on the tenth anniversary of the Pomskizillious Museum of Toys in Xaghra.
The book, which contains reference to writings about Malta and Gozo, is available from the museum. All proceeds are being donated to a fund for the environment in Gozo and Malta.
