HOUSE OF GLASS is the final volume of Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s acclaimed BURU quartet, which chronicles the turbulent history of early twentieth-century, Dutch colonial Indonesia through the eyes of Minke, a Dutch-educated Javanese writer. By now, Minke has risen to become a leading dissident and is in prison. He struggles from his ‘house of glass’ to stir both in his own countrymen and its invaders a sense of justice and of a society awakened.
