Summary
Across generations, the beautiful Indo prostitute Dewi Ayu, her daughters, and her grandchildren are beset by incest, murder, bestiality, rape, and the often fiercely vengeful undead in Indonesian author Eka Kurniawan's English language debut. Offering entertainment as well as a scathing critique of his young nation's troubled past, Kurniawan writes of the rapacious offhand greed of colonialism; the chaotic struggle for independence; and the 1965 mass murders of perhaps a millions "communists," followed by three decades of Suharto's despotic rule
