Coming To Jakarta

“Not since Robert Duncan’s Ground Work and before that William Carlos Williams’ Paterson has New Directions published a long poem as important as Coming to Jakarta.”

— James Laughlin

“A brilliant and devastating book. An autobiography that cat’s-cradles meticulously into world politics….This is a rare difficult book that uses precise poetry to evoke a map of the world where childhood lyric rubs shoulders terribly with the dark gods of power.”

— Michael Ondaatje
