Writer-Journalist Ayu Utami on Sunday launched her third novel, Bilangan Fu (Fu Number), seven years after her previous literary work.

"I had to learn rock climbing and conduct deep research before writing the novel," Ayu told reporters at Taman Ismail Marzuki arts center in Central Jakarta about the novel which centers on rock climbers.

During the launch, the 40-year-old writer gave a copy of Bilangan Fu, which expresses her criticisms of modernism, monotheism and militarism, to veteran rock climber Harry Suliz, the founder of Skyger rock climbing club.

Noted theater actor Landung Simatupang read parts of the novel published by Kepustakaan Populer Gramedia, during the launching.

Ayu's first novel Saman won a writing competition held by the Jakarta Art Competition in 1989 and Prince Claus Award in 2000 from Prince Claus of the Netherlands. She wrote her second novel Larung in 2001.
