The first collection of short fiction available in English from "Indonesia's Albert Camus" (San Francisco Chronicle)
Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s transcendent novels have become part of the world literary canon, but it is his short fiction that originally made him famous. The first full-size collection of his short stories to appear in English, All That Is Gone draws from the author’s own experiences in Indonesia to depict characters trying to make sense of a war-torn culture haunted by colonialism, among them an eight-year-old girl soon to be married off by her parents for money and an idealistic young soldier who witnesses the savage beating of a man accused of being a spy. Though violence and brutality pervade these tales, there is present throughout a profound sense of compassion—an extraordinary combination of despair and hope that gives All That Is Gone rare power and beauty.

"[Toer is] so great that we instantly feel we’ve known him—and he us—all our lives." —USA Today

"Simply, elegantly traces an emerging political consciousness... The writing flows as if in real time." —Los Angeles Times Book Review
