a novel by pratiwi juliani

Dear Jane


Our first novel, our first love.

The first novel we read lingers throughout our entire life, and so does the first novel we write. It’s a whole world, built out of a person’s heart, memories, longing, and hope. We are honoured to publish Comma’s first novel, Dear Jane by award-winning author, Pratiwi Juliani. The novel follows Jane, a beautiful but troubled, warm but distant, exciting but sorrowful young woman who traverses across city to city, lover to lover, age to age, in the hopes to find a place where she can belong. A bildungsroman from girlhood to womanhood that is both familiar and foreign, written in eloquent prose, and incredible intimacy is the next book to bring on your own journey.
