About the Author

Eka Kurniawan was born in 1975 and is the author of novels, short stories, essays, movie scripts, and graphic novels. He has been described by the Jakarta Post as 'one of the few influential writers in Indonesia.' His first novel to be translated into English, Beauty Is a Wound, was released in 2015.


'An unforgettable, all-encompassing epic of Indonesian history, magic, and murder-every detail seems essential to depicting Indonesia's tragic past. Upon finishing the book, the reader will have the sense of encountering not just the history of Indonesia but its soul and spirit. This is an astounding, momentous book.' Publishers Weekly on Beauty Is a Wound 'In terms of the literary novel, the year's most stirring revelation is Eka Kurniawan.' Flavorwire on Beauty Is a Wound 'An arresting portrait of Indonesia's struggle for nationhood, delights in obscenity: no topic is spared from its bloodthirsty brand of satire.' New Yorker on Beauty Is a Wound 'Beauty Is a Wound is an epic of a kind that could only come from the pen of an Indonesian...Kurniawan's creative ambition and scope are traditional in some senses, but his deeply strange work is profoundly original.' Australian on Beauty Is a Wound 'So sorrowful, so savage, so freaking weird...Densely textured, complex in time scheme and epic in scope...The author's intelligence breathes through the lines of the page, and he is equally capable of delicacy as decadence.' Saturday Paper on Beauty Is a Wound
