By the Book: Intan Paramaditha on The Wandering

If you remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books from your childhood, you will immediately recognise that exciting feeling of being given a choice within a novel’s story. Intan Paramaditha, however, adapts the concept into a much more adult world that looks at questions of travel, migration, agency, and privilege - which all begin with a woman in Jakarta being given a pair of red shoes by a demon. We speak with Intan about the process behind writing a book like this, and why it so perfectly mirrors the stories she wishes to tell. We wrap things up with a mini-review of the book itself, and the very unique experience of reading it.
