Book Description Morrow, 1993. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1993. Morrow. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 12. 352 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. 0688127266. keywords: February 6. inventory # 25660. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Pramoedya Ananta Toer has been compared to John Steinbeck (The Washington Post), Nadine Gordimer (The Nation), and Charles Dickens (Publishers Weekly). He shares with Naguib Mahfouz the ability to ‘achieve what few writers today are able to accomplish: drawing the reader, body and soul, into another world’ (Seattle Times). But the Chicago Tribune’s comparison to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is particularly apt. Not only is Pramoedya a writer of staggerlng depth and power, he is also one of his country’s most suppressed dissidents. All his work is banned in his native Indonesia; students have been sentenced to eight years in prison on charges stemming from an arrest for selling his books. In CHILD OF ALL NATIONS, the reader is immediately swept up by a story that is profoundly feminist, devastatingly anti-colonialist—and full of heartbreak, suspense, love, and fury Pramoedya immerses the reader in a world that is astonishing in its vividness: the cultural whirlpool that was the Dutch East Indies of the 1890s. A story of awakening, it follows Minke, the main character of This Earth of Mankind , as he struggles to overcome the injustice all around him. Pramoedya’s full literary genius is evident in the brilliant characters that populate this world: Minke’s fragile Mixed-Race wife; a young Chinese revolutionary; an embattled Javanese peasant and his impoverished family; the French painterJean Marais, to name just a few. CHILD OF ALL NATIONS is the second in a series of four novels often called the Buru tetralogy. Many of the characters from This (continued from front flap) EARTH OF MANKIND (the first volume) return to stunning effect in CHILD OF ALL NATIONS. But this is a novel that can also be read entirely on its own. The Buru tetralogy was composed orally on Burn Island during the first half of the author’s fourteen-year imprisonment with- out trial. Writing or reading anything but religious texts was strictly forbidden. Pramoedya would tell each installment to the people with whom he shared his hut; they in turn would tell others until the thousands of political prisoners held on Buru knew the story. In the latter half of his imprisonment, Pramoedya was allowed to write the novels he had composed orally. Pramoedya Ananta Toer was born in central Java in 1925. Some of his early works, including THE FUGITIVE, were written while he was imprisoned by the Dutch from 1947 to 1949 for his role in the Indonesian revolution. He was later held by the Indonesian government as a political prisoner on Burn Island from 1965 to 1979. Pramoedya is the author of more than thirty works of fiction and nonfiction and has translated novels by Steinbeck, Tolstoy, and Gorky into Indonesian. His works have been translated into twenty languages and he was awarded the PEN Freedom-to-Write Award in 1988. He is currently under city arrest in Jakarta. Max Lane was second secretary in the Australian embassy in Jakarta until recalled in 1981 because of his translation of Pramoedya’s tetralogy. . Bookseller Inventory # 25660
