After ten years wandering the world, Agustinus Wibowo has finally come home. He is now forced to face a reality that he has always feared. His mother is on the brink of death, as cancer ravages her body.

Not unlike Scherazade who reads through one thousand and one tales over as many nights, the traveller recounts his journey to his ailing mother, who has barely ever left their little village in Java, Indonesia.

He talks about the illusory homeland of China, the holy Tibet, the spiritual Nepal, the dramatic India, the struggling Pakistan, and the surviving Afghanistan. And along with these stories, his mother  nally  nds a voice to recount her own life journey. Fragments of their lives come together, two distinctive roads spanning time and distance only to converge, to become a heart-wrenching tale of love and survival.1

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.
