Additional Information

In this honest, heart-warming book, William Ingram shares a series of intimate moments that together sketch an illuminating portrait of a Balinese family. With wit and sensitivity, he relates captivating storiesfrom that of a special ceremony to stop a childs mischievousness to a poignant love-match which almost splits the family. His narrative explores the web of relationships that ties the members of the family to one another, their community and their ancestors. At the same time he candidly discloses a personal cross-cultural journey. Some of our notions of Bali as a paradise are affirmed by Ingrams tale. Others are dispelled only to reveal a resilient people who forgive life its tragedies and celebrate its gifts.

My wife and I recently returned from our first visit to Bali. Wherever we went , guides were offering to show us "the real Bali"--as if "the real Bali" could be contained in a particular place or sight. What we eventually learned was this: As beautiful as this island is, the real Bali exists primarily in its people--as well as in the mind of the beholder. We were very lucky. While in the city of Ubud, we were given William Ingram's superb book by a Balinese artist we happened to meet. We found it so engaging, so beautifully written that we had difficulty putting it down. In this book, Ingram provided us with a vivid, three dimentional portrait of a Balinese extended family--and it's relationship to the broader community. It is first rate anthropology--written with love and warmth--as well as objectivity. But it is much more than that. Ingram's book provides an indispensable guide to understanding the spirituality, generosity, and open-heartedness of... Read more
I picked up this book at Changi airport in Singapore, in transit to Bali. I import from Bali and frequently add books to my load read them once, and leave them in the library in Bali for others to enjoy. This one I have kept. I will not even loan it out unless I know exactly where I can hunt the person down to get it back - it is a great book. Great reading for the seasoned traveller. Great intro for people who are planning to go to Bali. I am currently ordering a few copies here at Amazon (the only place Stateside I was able to find it) to give to a friend (so I don't have to loan my copy out :))))))
If you're planning a trip to Bali, or have already been and loved it, this is a book you'll want to read. In it, Mr. Ingram describes his experience living with a Balinese family, and so doing, provides insight into their kind-hearted, spiritual and decidedly quirky nature.
The book reminds me very much of my own experiences in Bali, and has deepened my understanding of the interactions I had there. In addition to telling wonderfully rich and funny stories, Mr. Ingram artfully conveys the sights, smells and sounds of Indonesia. I read the book hoping to psychically extend a too-short visit. "A Little Bit One O'clock" did so, and convinced me that I need to go back... Terima kasih, I Ingram!
