An obsessive son of Australians living in Jakarta confronts his strange rituals. A young woman is trapped in the boredom of her father's ministry in exotic Borneo. A daughter defies her mother and travels to Bali.

    'Castagna's twenty stories range across countries: including Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and China, deftly exploring the relationships of parents and children, lovers and enemies, the transient and the resident. In the spirit of Rattawatt Lapacharoensap's Sightseeing, Castagna's fiction powerfully captures the landscapes and cultures of Asia and the intriguing interactions of Westerners with it.'

    Epigraph: 'All I did was write about a bunch of kids from a socialist country who took a lot of drugs. Our minds were empty but drugs couldn't give us imagination. A lot of crazy things have happened.'
