- Urban living was fast growing with its developed complexities that always accompanied the people lives in the urban area. Urban displayed many things that were growing so fast, practical, restricted, individualistic, and all-bossial. Those high complexities in urban areas had tremendous impacts on people connectivity in the area. Urban complexities had long been an interesting topic or source of idea for many writers on their works, among of them, Indah Hanaco. Hanaco, in each of her works, fully displayed portraits of families or urban people who had almost been untouched by traditional values. However, Hanaco seemed to remind the reader that we, the citizens of Indonesia, could not stand on the urban value alone. If so, we would lose our roots as Indonesian citizens. Urban people, with their urban values, had to be accompanied by traditional values. Thus, they will be able to stand firmly as an Indonesian citizen who had long been known to have a wealth of traditional value. This article was made through literature review on some of Hanaco's novels. The research was a qualitative and comparative descriptive analysis, with approaches on the concept of cultural studies, among others, cyberspace, gender, psychology, and connectivity. The hypothesis found in the data, among others, (1) urban people could not stand alone, but they always needed good connectivity with each other, especially when getting into trouble; (2) urban people could not solve their own problems and they tended to take the issue as an heirloom in life; (3) urban people tended to have complex traumatic backgrounds; (4) urban people tended to be self-defeating and self-interest; and (5) urban people could not stand alone with complete urban values, but still required traditional values which was derived from their ancestors.
