* Taken from 'THE MUTE'S SOLILOQUY', a memoir of Pramoedya Ananta Toer [chapter: Natant Ruminations (A letter for Pujarosmi)]
PRAMOEDYA ANANTA TOER
(2nd. Februari 1925 - 30th April 2006)
Personal note: Beside Buya Hamka, this is one of many writers from Indonesia that my late mother like to follow & her favourite was 'Keluarga Gerilya', a book I read at the age of 6 but if my memory doesn't misled me, I only happened to finish the book at the age of 12. That was the first of his writing I read & second was 'Sekali Peristiwa di Banten Selatan', others of his writing I can't remember much, but still until today his story has become a forever landmark for my skill of writing.
