Expat Indonesia History issue

I’ve always enjoyed the freebie rags that appear weekly or bi-weekly in most of the cities where I’ve lived. In LA and Sandy Eggo we had weekly “Readers;” NYC had the New York Press and it’s pompous auntie, the Village Voice. Singapore had a a few weeklies that came and went. I contributed to at least one of these.

Here in Jakarta we have Expat Indonesia. It used to be Expat Jakarta and Expat Bali, but a year or two back they folded into one periodical. The current issue features articles by not one but TWO of my fellow Monsoon Books authors.

Here is the cover story by Tim Hannigan: http://indonesiaexpat.biz/travel/history-culture/the-dawn-of-indonesian-islam/

And here is my interview with Tim from popmatters: http://www.popmatters.com/column/its-in-the-blood-a-conversation-with-history-writer-tim-hannigan/

And Rosie Milne puts in an appearance here: http://indonesiaexpat.biz/travel/history-culture/life-back-then/

Rosie and I presented together at the Singapore Books Festival last year…blog post here. Also check out the interview with me on Rosie’s blog (which people actually apparently read)…here.

And finally, since we dig jazz and art music and world music, there is this amazing column by Terry Collins on how all these genres intersected in an avant garde singer nearly 100 years ago: http://indonesiaexpat.biz/travel/history-culture/influence-javanese-music-on-jazz/

So click those links and support independent writers and publishers…’cause honey, we don’t do this for the money…
