Ladies of the Borobudur by Barbara Haines Howett


DeWitt Henry recommends
Ladies of the Borobudur, stories by Barbara Haines Howett: "Although Howett's stories portray a variety of characters, the primary focus is on corporate wives in Indonesia and their troubled awareness of social injustice and of the richness of cultural differences. Howett explores and evokes astonishingly different points of view, and her post-colonial sense of irony is bracing." (Creative Arts)
