Monash is excited to host the award-winning Indonesian novelist and journalist Leila S. Chudori (born Jakarta, 1962). In this conversation, she will be talking about her best-selling novel, Pulang (translated into English and published by Vellum Press under the title Home). About Pulang, Leila has said:   

I wanted to tell the story of political exiles who could not return home. Those who lived far from their homeland but still felt they were a part of Indonesia, no matter what kind of passports they were issued and no matter how the government treated them.

She will also talk about her latest major work: a recent essay written for the Australia-Indonesia Centre series.
