More about Lighter than I
Yokya, Java, 1850. Isah is the daughter of the sultan’s tailor. Her life and position in the strongly hierarchical culture of colonial Java seem to be predetermined. However, Isah possesses an extraordinary determination and a willful character. She takes control of her destiny and escapes her arranged marriage by starting an affair with a ‘Belanda’, a Dutchman stationed on Java. But what does she have to sacrifice to provide her two daughters of mixed blood with a life better than her own?
Lighter than I is a moving, historical novel about position, desire and identity in the Dutch East Indies of the late nineteenth century.
