We are thrilled to introduce the next installment in our new series of Debut Fiction evenings at our flagship Charing Cross Road branch—focusing on some of the most hotly-anticipated novels and extraordinary new literary voices hitting bookshelves in 2020.
“Giving strength to Indonesian literature’s newly empowered female voice”
—South China Morning Post on The Wandering
For this instalment in the series, join award-winning author Intan Paramaditha as she opens the pages of her magical, literary choose-your-own-narrative novel The Wandering—Winner of an English PEN Translates Award, and the PEN America/ Heim Translation Fund Grant.

She will discuss the exhilarating possibilities of global nomadism, set against the aching isolation and loneliness stitched up in solo perambulation. As well as speaking on the aspects of desire, identity, and freedom framing her narrative, Paramaditha will also open up will also open up on her own writing process, and the steps that led to the publication of her first novel.
