This book is an anthology of Ahmad Tohari’s fifteen short-stories that had appeared in countless newspapers between 1983 and 1997. Like his novels, his short-stories always have distinct characteristics. He always portrays the lives of the poor people or the low working class, with all their pain and struggles. Ahmad Tohari knew their lives well. As a result, he was able to weave the stories with a touching sympathy and empathy that can enrich the readers’ mind.1
