Immanuel Mifsud


Immanuel Mifsud was born in Malta in 1967. He has published six poetry books including Confidential Reports (Southword Editions) translated by Maurice Riordan
and most recently Bateau Noir in a bilingual edition (Maltese-French). He has also
published seven prose works with one short story collection translated and published
in English and Albanian. In 2002 he won the National Book Award for his collection
L-Istejjer Strambi ta’ Sara Sue Sammut (Sara Sue Sammut’s Strange Stories) and in
2011 he won the European Union Prize for Literature with his book In the Name of
the Father (and of the Son)
. He was the poet from Malta for the Poetry Parnassus in
London 2012.


“This is poetry as the old rock ‘n roll - edgy,
excessive, and visceral in its appeal. Mifsud resembles
a rumbustious latter-day troubadour.”
– Maurice Riordan
