It is May 1998, and riots have sprung up across Indonesia with attacks targeting the ethnic Chinese. Buildings are being set alight all around as helpless crowds watch their communities burn to the ground. Nina, a young Indonesian woman of Chinese descent, feels compelled to help her fellow student activists but finds herself in harmâs way amid the mass gang-raping of Chinese women. Despite the governmentâs best efforts to deny these allegations, the lives of many were dramatically changed by the traumatic events. Ninaâs heart-breaking experience is laced with cultural imagery and an emotional depth that will leave you awed. âA powerful and engaging story about a national scandal the nation prefers to deny or forget.

About Us

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.
