AbdouMaliq Simone illustrates how the majority of Jakarta's population, caught between intense wealth and utter poverty, handles confluence and contradictions in their everyday lives. Exploring how inhabitants from different backgrounds regard each other, how they work together or keep their distance in order to make the city endure, he offers a powerful new way of thinking about urban life
