9789799532206: A Little Bit One O'clock

In this honest, heart-warming book, William Ingram shares a series of intimate moments that together sketch an illuminating portrait of a Balinese family. With wit and sensitivity, he relates captivating storiesfrom that of a special ceremony to stop a childs mischievousness to a poignant love-match which almost splits the family. His narrative explores the web of relationships that ties the members of the family to one another, their community and their ancestors. At the same time he candidly discloses a personal cross-cultural journey. Some of our notions of Bali as a paradise are affirmed by Ingrams tale. Others are dispelled only to reveal a resilient people who forgive life its tragedies and celebrate its gifts.
