Dalih Sembiring


May be better known as a translator than a writer. His English translation of Eka Kurniawan’s novel Lelaki Harimau (Man Tiger; Verso Books, 2015), was longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker International Prize. Once a contributor of feature articles to The Jakarta Post, he went on to become a full-time features reporter with the Jakarta Globe. He has published two novels. His short stories have been run in various newspapers and magazines, and have been included in Jurnal Cerpen Indonesia (Indonesian Short Story Journal) and a number of collective short story anthologies.
