Summary:In 1965, Pramoedya Ananta Toer was a hero of the Indonesian
revolution and widely regarded as one of the best writers the country
had ever produced. That year, however, as Indonesia embarked on a
period of intense social unrest, Pramoedya and tens of thousands of
others were detained and eventually exiled to the remote island of
Buru. Imprisoned on Buru for eleven years without trial or formal
accusation, Pramoedya and his fellow prisoners were forced to clear
dense tracts of jungle, build camps, and forage for food. They died
by the hundreds of starvation, brutality, and disease. Whether he is
narrating the story of a fellow prisoner, remembering the dead and
the missing, discussing what is means to be a citizen, or giving
advise to his children in letters he knew they would never receive,
Pramoedya's courage, integrity, and commitment to social justice are
in powerful evidence.
