“Can’t you endure a little longer, Kang? At least once in my life, I want to feel satisfied,” Nurlela’s astonishing confession left Tobor shattered. Their eleven-year marriage was on the brink of dissolution due to issues in their intimate relationship. Nurlela was burdened by various regrets, while Tobor tried various ways to resolve this bedroom matter, ranging from medical to mystical solutions. This even included seeking the mythical figure of Ratu Siluman Celeng and requesting power from a phallus-shaped amulet.

“It seems that ‘Mustika Zakar Celeng’ intends to reconcile social reality with myth, comic with tragedy, realism with surrealism. The issue of sexuality is developed into a social issue, then into a political issue that depicts the futility of its characters, who seek power but end up in helplessness.” – JURY OF THE JAKARTA ARTS COUNCIL NOVEL COMPETITION 2021.
