Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s transcendent novels have become part of the world literary canon, but it is his short fiction that originally made him famous. The first full-size collection of his short stories to appear in English, All That Is Gone draws from the author’s own experiences in Indonesia to depict characters trying to make sense of a war-torn culture haunted by colonialism, among them an eight-year-old girl soon to be married off by her parents for money and an idealistic young soldier who witnesses the savage beating of a man accused of being a spy. Though violence and brutality pervade these tales, there is present throughout a profound sense of compassion—an extraordinary combination of despair and hope that gives All That Is Gone rare power and beauty.

Synopsis:

Pramoedya's semi-autobiographical stories deal with life's major themes: birth and death, sexual knowledge and love, compassion and revenge. This is the first time Pramoedya's short fiction has been widely available to the English reading public; its publication represents a significant addition to the cannon of world literature in translation.
