About This Book

Pramoedya Ananta Toer, one of Indonesia's foremost writers, is enjoying a popularity surge with the end of the Suharto regime, which had him incarcerated in a neglected island prison and then held him under house arrest for many years. This book has been painstakingly reconstructed from the serial first published in Lentera, a leftist-leaning publication in the Sukarno days. It explores the complex power relationship between classes and sexes in a Javanese fishing village early in the 20th century. An inspiring work which celebrates the spirit of common people as it traces the lonely path to maturity. The book is loosely based on the story of Pramoedya's grandmother. Includes a brief epilog based on an interview with the author in 1990. Translator Aveling won the Anugerah Esso-Gapena Literary Prize for his contribution to literary translation.
