A modern take on the story of Amba and Bhisma from The Mahabharata, set against the backdrop of the Indonesian mass killings of 1965 and the Buru penal colony. The novel is now a national bestseller and has been printed several times since its publication in October 2012.

The beautifully written novel by Laksmi Pamuntjak, a poet, food critic, essayist and short story writer, will awaken in you that feeling of being deeply in love again.
