“After half a century,” writes the famous Indonesian scholar Benedict Anderson, “Pramoedya Ananta Toer has found a successor”Eka Kurniawan has been described as “the brightest of the meteorite” in Indonesia, the new literary firmament, the author of two remarkable novels whose beauty, elegance, cosmopolitanism, and ambition have brought comparisons not only to Pramoedya, universally regarded as Indonesia’s modern literary genius, but also to Salman Rushdie, Gabriel Garcia MarciaA new generation of young literary figures in Indonesia, emerging, after decades of repressive dictatorship ended in 1998, is the renewal of the world culture of the largest Muslim nation (and its language, which was only at the national level, instituted in 1945)Kurniawan Beauty Is a Wound and Tiger Man are the cornerstones of this movementA disillusioned slim narrative in a new town near the Indian Ocean, The Tiger Man tells the story of two linked and tormented families, and Margio, an ordinary half-town, half-rural, young man who also happens to be half-human, half-natural female white tiger (in many parts of Indonesia, magical tigers protect villages and families)Both elegant and debauched, experimental and political, Tiger Man will help establish Indonesia’s new voices, underrepresented in the world of literature, while demonstrating the influence of world literature on Indonesian writers.
