Twilight in Djakarta is a vivid tale that delves into the social and political life of Jakarta at the beginning of the 1960s, revealing the dark underbelly of poverty, corruption and vice that lay just below the city’s glittering surface. Through the eyes of the central character Suryono, a young, Western-educated government official, we discover the complex events and relationships that draw people from all walks of life together during a period of immense upheaval. First published in 1963, Twilight in Djakarta was the first Indonesian novel to be translated into English.
