“Eka Kurniawan’s Seperti Dendam, Rindu Harus Dibayar Tuntas (Love and Revenge) is an observation of masculinity that may come as an answer to a literary movement of woman writers who liberate themselves by discussing sexuality in their novels […] Wrapped in a Chinese kung fu-styled novel and almost as brutal and dark as Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club, Eka has maintained his place on the frontlines of Indonesian writers.”
