By Alice Mascarenhas
In 2018, Alice Mascarenhas, former Deputy Editor of the Gibraltar Chronicle, opened the page on a new chapter in her 40-year trajectory as a journalist. Having retired from the daily grind of the newsroom, she took up a role as a columnist in the newspaper, inviting a new guest to her table every week and giving her reader a glimpse into the lives of Gibraltarians from across all sectors of the community. This book is a collection of the third year of Alice's Table, as her weekly column is aptly named. Here are the next 49 stories of personal achievement, sacrifice and perserverance, tales of trails and successes, always told with humanity and a reporter's keen eye for the details that bring a story to life. The weekly columns have now surpassed 150 in the newspaper. In this book, like in the first and second volumes, they are contemporary spanning several decades rooted in Gibraltar's collective memory. Together, they represent a rich modern history of Gibraltar and its people, within a real time.
