Achdiat K. Mihardja

translated from the Indonesian by R.J. Maguire
University of Queensland Press 1972 [1949]
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992
Set in Indonesia before and during the Japanese occupation, Atheis tells the story of Hasan, a pious Muslim who loses his faith after falling in love and becoming involved with a group of radicals. It is both a love story and a vivid account of the period. Definitely worth reading.

March 1992
