Paramaditha, Intan,

The wandering : a red shoes adventure / Intan Paramaditha ; translated from the Indonesian by Stephen J. Epstein. - London : Vintage, 2021. - 436 pages ; 20 cm.

You've grown roots, you're gathering moss. You're desperate to escape your boring life teaching English in Jakarta, to go out and see the world. So you make a Faustian pact with a devil, who gives you a gift, and a warning. A pair of red shoes to take you wherever you want to go. Turn the page and make your choice. You may become a tourist or an undocumented migrant, a mother or a murderer, and you will meet other travellers with their own stories to tell. Freedom awaits but borders are real. And no story is ever new.

Translated from the Indonesian.
