Description

THE SCENTED MUMMY

by Naning Pranoto


A POLITICAL NOVEL

The Scented Mummy by Naning Pranoto was published in Indonesia as Mumi Beraroma Minyak Wangi by IndonesiaTera in 2001. This is the English translation. It tells the story of a middle class woman whose life is numbed by politics: hence the term ‘mummy’ to describe the shell of an existence that she lives. The cause of her suffering is Suharto’s New Order regime with its anti-Communist and crony-capitalist characteristics. For three decades from the 1960s to the 1990s, it created victims on the one hand and unprincipled opportunists on the other. While President Suharto had been hailed in his time as the father of development, this ‘development’ was viewed with irony by the common people who were left weak and dependent.

It is the story of these common people that Pranoto tells. She does so though the setting of Bandung in the 1970s and shanty town at the garbage dump area around Cilincing, Jakarta, in the 1980s onwards. She shows how the desperately poor take in the middle class woman who finds herself amongst them, and how her perfume-making business helps them. Ultimately, however, a political novel such as this can only end realistically for its protagonist despite the hope and courage expressed in the face of adversity.
