                    When young western tourist Neil meets Indonesian girl Yossy on Kuta beach and decides to settle permanently in Bali he knows his life is about to change forever … but will it be the paradise he is yearning for? As cracks start to appear in Neil's halcyon existence, he is forced to re-evaluate all he holds dear. Twilight in Kuta explores love, loss and infidelity in present-day Indonesia from a number of perspectives: the bule (Caucasian) English teacher, the duplicitous Indonesian wife, the mixed-race schoolgirl, the Javanese ex-soldier and the naive village girl desperate for love. Their stories intertwine throughout the book, and the various narrators offer different interpretations of the events that unfold.
