9789814358736: Jaipong Dancer: A sweeping story of love, hate and moral corruption set against a backdrop of political unrest in Indonesia

Set in 1950s Sumatra, this is a story of lost innocence and complex moral dilemmas. It follows the journey of Yahyu, a young Javanese dancer, who runs away from a forced marriage and becomes unwittingly involved in the violent struggle for Sumatra’s independence from Jakarta. On her long passage from fame to degradation Yahyu experiences love, hate, sexual slavery and the horror of the rebels’ last bloody battle deep in the Barisan Mountains
