A journalist cum novelist, Seno Gumira presents history and fiction with a clarity that is more effective than dry, and a somewhat murky story on what actually happened in Timor Leste (formerly Indonesia’s province of East Timor). The short stories focus on individuals that become victims of Indonesia’s occupation in Timor Leste, fleshing out the human costs that are often shadowed by the big, nationalistic lens in politics.1
