“Annie Tucker’s skilful translation captures Kurniawan’s matter-of-fact prose and black humour. Elements of the supernatural and oral storytelling combine powerfully to evoke a brutal past and some of the pivotal events that helped shape Indonesia today.” Review of Beauty Is a Wound and Man Tiger by Lucy Popescu, The Financial Times.

“With remarkable skill, Eka tells a story about animals and human beings arguing about the existence of God, religion and our fate.” O review from The Jakarta Post by Elysa Ng.
