Product Description
 
A choose-your-own-adventure-style novel about travelling the world and the politics and privileges of global mobility.

The Wandering's jumping off point is the story of Dorothy and her ruby slippers, which readers are invited to slip on, allowing them to roam on a path of their own choosing between New York, Berlin, Jakarta, Lima and beyond.

Sydney-based Indonesian writer Intan Paramaditha has been heralded as one of a growing group of brilliant female writers 'giving strength to Indonesian literature's newly empowered female voice' (South China Morning Post). Paramaditha's writing is exhilaratingly wild, fun and feminist, and she digs deep into ideas surrounding desire, identity and isolation, the highs and lows of global nomadism, and the freedoms and limitations of the choices we make.

The Wandering is fierce and unconventional, inviting readers to step out of their comfort zones and to empathise with other people.A choose-your-own-adventure-style novel about travelling the world and the politics and privileges of global mobility.
