From the Editor

Nirzona: A Love Story is a beautiful portrayal of the similarities between romantic love and religious faith. Sidan and Firdaus are young and in love, with plans to marry. But can their devotion reunite them after they are torn apart by the devastation of a tsunami?

The couple remain connected in their hearts even as they are divided by distance, keeping in touch through text messages. Inspired by the poetry of Islam, the two exchange elegant couplets memorable enough to keep their blossoming romance alive even when their phones go out of range. As he faces unimaginable horrors in the wake of destruction, Sidan is carried through by the powerful force of his love, sustained by the ballads that find him through his phone, always buoyed by the thought of his sweet Firdaus whispering unforgettable phrases in his ear. And just as they can always trust in their prayers, they can trust in one another.

The intensity and fervent hope of these two lovers’ words ring as true as a classic love song—so simple, yet so heartrending—and as they struggle to return to each other’s arms, they include the reader in the intimate beauty of their exchanges.

- Gabriella Page-Fort, Editor

About the Author

Abidah El Khalieqy was born in 1965 in Jombang, East Java. She graduated from an all-girls Persatuan Islam boarding school in Pasuruan and Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University in Yogyakarta. She began to write in her youth and has had a productive career, publishing nine novels, most recently Mimpi Anak Pulau (An Island Child’s Dream, 2013); two short story collections; and the poetry collection Ibuku Laut Berkobar (My Mother Is the Shining Sea, 1997). Her 2001 novel Perempuan Berkalung Sorban (The Woman in the Turban) was adapted for the screen and won several awards. Geni Jora (Light of the Morning Star, 2003) was judged Best Novel by the Jakarta Arts Council in 2003.

El Khalieqy’s work gives a voice to women, including victims of polygamy and domestic violence, whom she feels are still often marginalized in Indonesia. Her work has been widely anthologized and has received numerous awards.
