All That Is Gone
All That Is Gone by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Book DescriptionPramoedya Ananta Toer s transcendent novels have become part of the world literary canon, but it is his short fiction that originally made him famous. The first full-size collection of his short stories to appear in English, All That Is Gone draws from the author s own experiences in Indonesia to depict characters trying to make sense of a war-torn culture haunted by colonialism, among them an eight-year-old girl soon to be married off by her parents for money and an idealistic young soldier who witnesses the savage beating of a man accused of being a spy. Though violence and brutality pervade these tales, there is present throughout a profound sense of compassion an extraordinary combination of despair and hope that gives All That Is Gone rare power and beauty."
