“Ketika Bulan Tidur” : the Indonesian translation of ‘Bones of the Dark Moon’ now available for pre-order

A morning of stiff onshore winds here Sanur side (yesterday gusts were blowing roofs off beach shacks, and I heard that at one establishment four tourists were injured).

Please take note of the new item on the sidebar. My novel Bones of the Dark Moon, about Bali’s 1965 massacres, has been translated. “Ketika Bulan Tidur” is available for digital edition pre-order by clicking on the image. The publishing date is 17 Augustus, Indonesia’s Independence Day. That seems an appropriate date for such an important and yet barely known tragedy in this country’s history.

If you haven’t read the English version, it’s well worth it. Click the image for the Amazon Kindle link. Print copies are available at Periplus and Ganesha bookstores. The 50th anniversary of the killings (an estimated 50000 Balinese killed by fellow Balinese and tossed into rivers and estuaries and mass graves, including the Mertasari Sanur mangroves) is coming up on October 30th.
