ESEA Archives Book Club
The next book club will be Thursday 4th of April 6.30pm.
This month, we are reading Intan Paramaditha’s debut The Wandering (2020). This unusual choose-your-own-story novel explores travel and identity, exploring the highs and lows of global nomadism, the politics and privileges of travel and desire, and the freedoms and limitations of the choices we make. It is a reminder that borders are real, and a playful experiment that turns the traditional adventure story on its head.
