Fall Baby follows the lives of Siri and Dara, one a globetrotting visual artist, the other a political activist. Siri is the illegitimate daughter of Amba and Bhisma. Dara is Siri’s best friend-turned-foe. It is a novel about the intricacies of art, religion, politics and history in a troubled Indonesia, but also about family, identity, motherhood, and the sisterhood of women.
