9 dari Nadira opens with the suicide of Kemala Yunus, matriarch of the Suwandi family. Her youngest child Nadira serves as the narrative’s center as the book chronicles her grief and how she and her family trudge on with life. The stories themselves move in a chronological order, but within the stories are flashbacks that date to when Kemala met future husband Bramantyo. 9 dari Nadira is both family saga and historical fiction. It touches upon various historical events such as the Malari Incident up to the World Trade Center collapse.1
