Bali: Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2019
The launch of Laksmi Pamuntjak's latest novel, FALL BABY (and its Indonesian version, SRIKANDI) with reading by the author and a Q&A moderated by Gill Westaway.
Fall Baby (Penguin Random House: September 2019) tells the story of two women—Srikandi (Siri) and Dara, one a globetrotting visual artist, the other a political activist. Siri is the illegitimate daughter of Amba and Bhisma, the protagonists of Laksmi Pamuntjak’s award-winning first novel, Amba/The Question of Red. Dara is Siri’s best friend-turned foe. It is a novel about the intricacies of art, religion, politics and history in a troubled Indonesia, but also about family, identity, motherhood, and the sisterhood of women.
