Reviews

This is easily one of the most inventive, urgent and passionate texts I've read. It's also a testament to what skilled translators, the neglected heroes of the world literature scene, can achieve. Hats off to you, Ward Keeler.

The exuberance and the deep feelings of this well-translated tour de force should help push this book into the hands of readers from many backgrounds. Father Mangunwijaya's novel escapes many strictures.

Ward Keeler's brilliant translation of this 1991 Indonesian classic could not be a more impressively persuasive interpretation..
