A Shooting Star & Other Stories: A trilingual edition in English, German and Indonesian.

History fascinates in the hands of Iksaka Banu. The stories in this collection feature
well-crafted characters acting at key moments in Indonesia’s colonial past.
Indonesia’s history has frequently been told through Western eyes. Now, Iksaka
Banu reclaims the past and makes it come alive for today’s readers.

Iksaka Banu’s historical fiction is revelatory. His stories overturn the narratives that millions of Indonesians have grown up learning.
