9/17: Indonesian Author Eka Kurniawan at Green Apple Books on the Park [EVENT]


Considered by many to be the greatest among a new generation of Indonesian novelists, Eka Kurniawan will discuss Beauty is a Wound (New Directions) and Man Tiger (Verso)—both published on the same day—with Center founder Olivia Sears. and his able translator Annie Tucker.

Kurniawan has been described as the brightest star in Indonesia’s new literary firmament, the author of two remarkable novels whose sheer beauty, elegance, cosmopolitanism, and ambition have brought comparisons not only to Pramaoedya Ananta Toer, universally considered Indonesia’s modern literary genius, but also to Salman Rushdie, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Mark Twain.
