General Note
Translated into English by the author.
"This dazzling novella from a rising star of Indonesian literature explores generational legacies, lost loves, the damage that war does to men, and the damage that men do to women. In today's Jakarta, an unnamed man tells the story of his lifelong friend and unrequited love, Nastiti, and what happened on the day she vanished. In the Dutch East Indies' Semarang, a young Indo-Dutch girl, Rukmini, is captured by the Japanese military and forced into prostitution. Years later, Arini travels to the Netherlands to share her mother's dark past with a researcher. After the American occupation of Japan in WWII ends, a former war photographer revisits his memories of Hanako, the wife of a traumatized ex-Imperial soldier, but can't escape his own darkness. And in present-day Osaka, a young Indonesian woman, Dara, haunted by her past and struggling to conceive, becomes obsessed with a Japanese porn star. Full of surprising turns, and in stunning prose, Birth Canal tells the interwoven stories of women that span time and history."--Back cover.
Winner, Ayu Utami's "Rasa" Literary Prize, 2023.
