Told in short, cinematic bursts, Eka’s third novel is gloriously pulpy, populated by a range of characters from Java’s urban underworld and liberally peppered with fights, high-speed car chases, and ladies heaving with desire. He continues to explore familiar themes of female agency in a violent male world dominated by petty criminals and a corrupt police state while presenting his most psychologically complex characters to date. West Java comes alive with a gritty pungency that fans of Quentin Tarantino and Denis Johnson will appreciate.

The Jakarta Post says the book is “an observation of masculinity that may come as an answer to a literary movement of woman writers who liberate themselves by discussing sexuality. Wrapped in a Chinese kung fu-styled novel and almost as brutal and dark as Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club, Eka has maintained his place on the frontlines of Indonesian writers.”1
