Coming Home (Preorder)
Being away from her home country of Indonesia for almost a decade, Tita Larasati returns to her adopted home of Bandung from the Netherlands, now with her Dutch husband and two young kids in tow. As the family adjusts to life in Bandung, Tita is also rediscovering her hometown with a fresh perspective. Comprising little vignettes of her daily musings and adventures—with food, public transport and the unwanted house lizard—this charming graphic diary captures the author's humour and refreshing outlook on life.
