“Isna Marifa has extended the geographical and emotional reach of the modern Indonesian novel. The result is an original and captivating story that has launched the career of a new and promising literary voice.”
A visit to South Africa led to Isna Marifa’s commitment to telling the story of the Javanese who were taken to South Africa in the colonial era.
“This is an important novel: it reminds us that history is also made by the activities and stories of ‘little’ people, those who find it difficult to determine their own destinies.”
– Febi Indirani, journalist & Writer
