Not Virgin Mary is the humorous stories of contemporary Islamic myths and daily lives in Indonesia. We meet an angel is having mental fatigue and has enough of the human follies, a pig who has a touching and endearing request, or a suicide bomber having a terrible shock in the waiting room before he supposedly meets the angels. Written with crafty but straightforward storytelling, it persuades us to rethink again about the world constructed by deeply rooted doctrines in a critical yet empathetic way.
