Kami Akan Teruskan Jejak Langkahmu
I just read that Indonesian writer and activist Pramoedya Ananta Toer died at the age of 81 on April 30th. Mr. Toer wrote four books which are known as the Buru Quartet depicting stories of Indonesians fighting against Dutch colonialism and military dictatorship.
I've had the please of reading This Earth of Mankind, the first book of the Buru Quartet. It's my first introduction into the lives, history, and culture of the country of Indonesia. I look forward to reading the rest of the Buru Quartet one day.
Mr. Toer's presence and voice will be greatly missed by those who believe in freedom and self-determination.
