Marie Gray: Tamu
A New Zealand Family in Java
Signed by author Marie Gray
Tamu portrays the life of a New Zealand medical couple and their young family in Indonesia from 1959-71. It is a tale of turmoil and tension interspersed with hilarious situations in the crowded quarter of Bandung, West Java. It highlights the reaction of people from many cultures who came to help the developing republic.
Not only an excellent travel book, it is an authentic and sensitive journey into the thoughts and beliefs of a people who enriched the lives of the author and her family with true values and real friendship.
