A landmark novel, The Weaverbirds is a tale of physical and spiritual struggle. The story spans the time from the formative days of Indonesia’s independence to Indonesia’s oil crisis in the mid-1970s. Larasati, the precious daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Antana, and Setadewa, the armybrat son of Captain and Mrs. Brajabasuki, are childhood friends. But as they grow up, they find themselves at opposite ends of the country’s political spectrum. Yet despite their many differences, their relationship provides guidance to help them survive in a chaotic world.
