Beauty Is A WoundAudiobook CD - 2016
Kurniawan's gleefully grotesque hyperbole is a scathing critique of his young nation's troubled past: the rapacious offhand greed of colonialism; the chaotic struggle for independence; the 1965 mass murders, followed by three decades of Suharto's despotic rule. Drawing on local sources, folk tales and the all-night shadow puppet plays, with their bawdy wit, and inspired by Melville and Gogol, Beauty Is a Wound is passionate and ironic, exuberant and confronting.
