Join us for the launch of Laksmi Pamuntjak's newest novel, Fall Baby, at Books Actually!
Fall Baby tells the story of two women who used to be best friends—Srikandi (Siri), a globetrotting visual artist, and Dara, a political activist. It is a story of seeing and unseeing; of freedom and censorship; of East and West; of memory and identity; of family bonds and making peace with the past; and ultimately, of the most unexpected yet precious gift of all: the sisterhood of women.
