Indonesian Stories May 19, 2010
Personally, I enjoy a good story, regardless of whether the writer is a man or a woman (I know that this will sound like blasphemy to the hate-filled feminists, but there you are). Anyway,these thirteen stories written by Indonesian writers fill a cultural vacuum in the West. Although they are based in the archipelago, the themes that they deal with are applicable to anyone in any society (the themes of treason, fidelity, honor, love, ancestral roots, etc.). There were two stories with which I had trouble and I put it down to cultural differences, but the others were easily comprehensible and enjoyable to one degree or another. Each reader will, of course, prefer one story to the other. It is a thin book and can be easily read through in the course of a day.
