Daughter of Independence
By:"Bryce Alcock","Wenny Achdiat"
Published on 2013 by Lulu.com

As a child, Wenny Achdiat experienced the tumult of the Japanese occupation and the Revolution against Dutch rule. Subsequently she struggled for her own independence, first with her parents as a teenager, then with her oil executive husband during the chaotic Sukarno era, and finally with her loneliness as a single mother in Australia. Daughter of Independence interweaves Wenny's story with that of her father, the controversial writer Achdiat Karta Mihardja, whose first novel Atheis became a classic. Independence brings both joy and sorrow for Wenny and tests the strong bond between father and daughter.
