Description :

‘One reason I disliked my brother was because he was responsible for me losing my virginity, which happened when he got me kicked out of my own home – even if only indirectly.’

Jakarta teenager Ricky Satria overhears his parents calling him spoilt and discussing how they will send him to live in a pesantren, an Islamic boarding school, to free up a bedroom for his elder brother. Ricky takes umbrage at being called spoilt and decides there and then to enrol himself in a pesantren, both to challenge his parents’ perception of him and to pre-empt his eviction.

In this coming-of-age novel, four Indonesian students seek to discover what their future will bring and look for answers to their questions about sexuality, love, religion and drugs. With characters ranging from cross-dressing hairdressers, drag queens and rent boys to fanatic Muslims and mystical martial-arts teachers, the action of this tragicomedy moves between an Islamic boarding school and a gay bar in Jakarta, and in so doing illuminates the mindset and yearnings of a new generation of Indonesians.
