indecomposable dual Banach spaces

A Banach space E is called indecomposable if there are no infinite-dimensional subspaces X and Y of E such that E is the direct sum of X and Y.

There are examples of reflexive indecomposable Banach spaces.

My question is: Is there a indecomposable Banach space that is a dual space, but not reflexive?

Any pertinent hints will be appreciated.
