From the author of the internationally acclaimed The Harmony Silk Factory comes an enthralling novel that evokes an exotic yet turbulent place and time--1960s Indonesia during President Sukarno's drive to purge the country of its colonial past. A page-turning story, Map of the Invisible World follows the journeys of two brothers and an American woman who are indelibly marked by the past--and swept up in the tides of history.

Interestingly, this novel built aroud the characters who are then set in their context, rather than the reverse. A good read.

Tash Aw's second novel is even better than his first one, in my opinion: brilliant in style, plot, as well as background depiction of a turbulent time in Indonesia, the book's strongest points lie in its multi-faceted characters that you can't help falling in love with.
