About This Book
Deeply imbued with the myths, beliefs and culture of Balinese people, this novel tells of the tragedy of October 1965 when some 40,000 people, perhaps many more, were slaughtered by the CIA-aided "anti Communist" forces that brought down the Sukarno government in Indonesia. Actual events, supernatural forces, divine retribution, dreams and temple rituals are impressively handled by the author, whose long participation in the island's art, cultural and religious scene enables the story to give unique insights into the Balinese approach to life and death.
Garrett Kam is also the author of Ramayana in the Arts of Asia.
