Description - The Fish Girl by Mirandi Riwoe
Winner of the 2017 Seizure Viva La Novella Prize
Shortlisted for the 2018 Stella Prize
Sparked by the description of a `Malay trollope' in W. Somerset Maugham's story, `The Four Dutchmen', Mirandi Riwoe's novella, The Fish Girl, tells of an Indonesian girl whose life is changed irrevocably when she moves from a small fishing village to work in the house of a Dutch merchant. There she finds both hardship and tenderness as her traditional past and colonial present collide.
Told with an exquisitely restrained voice and coloured with lush description, this moving book will stay with you long after the last page.
