Although the events of the mass human rights violations in 1965-1966 occurred five decades ago, it does not mean that Indonesia has healed from the wounds it caused. “Rumah Dukkha” gathers 20 stories that question and draw from the post-traumatic conditions experienced and narrated by the victims of that dark historical period. These victims, though on the surface they may appear like “ordinary people” with the intricacies of their lives, carry unhealed traumas that gnaw at their bodies and minds, affecting those around them and even being passed down to the next generation. Through the stories in “Rumah Dukkha,” readers are no longer invited to witness the forms of human rights violations that occurred in the past but to swim in the inner sea of the victims—calm yet turbulent, smooth yet rocky.

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
