Tales From Djakarta

A collection of stories by

This translation of fiction by the well-known (and suppressed) Indonesian author Pramoedya Ananta Toer is a welcome addition for any reader. With little traditional narrative structure and an often angry, ironical tone, these stories are intensely regional in flavor and modern in approach and make no apology for these facts. Usefully provided with footnotes in sections where translation of Pramoedya's language is especially difficult or distracts from the flavor of the story altogether (and is thus maintained in the original), this collection includes such works as Stranded Fish, Creatures Behind Houses, and the great Ketjapi.
