This novel is a celebration of life and human commitment. The hero had decided to start a new life as a farmer, moving to one of Indonesia’s outer islands as part of the government’s transmigration program. His almost futile efforts then brought him to meet various madmen—bureaucrats, bandits, psychiatrists, religious teachers, and a beautiful woman known only as the VIP. The combination of these characters makes us question what ‘normal’ is in a conventional society. Drought is a lyrical testimony to the strength and unpredictability of human nature
