Indonesian writer and dissident Pramoedya Ananta Toer concludes his epic of Indonesian nationhood in this story of Minke, the talented, bold, and imaginative native leader whose life, told in the preceding three volumes -This Earth of Mankind, Child of All Nations, and Footsteps - now takes a dramatic new form.With House Of Glass comes the final chapter of Pramoedya's epic quartet, set in the Dutch East Indies at the turn of the century. A novel of heroism, passion, and betrayal, it provides a spectacular conclusion to a series hailed as one of the great works of modern literature. At the start of House of Glass, Minke, writer and leader of the dissident movement, is now imprisoned—and the narrative has switched to Pangemanann, a former policeman, who has the task of spying and reporting on those who continue the struggle for independence. But the hunter is becoming the hunted. Pangemanann is a victim of his own conscience and has come to admire his adversaries. He must decide whether the law is to safeguard the rights of the people or to control the people. He fears the loss of his position, his family, and his self-respect. At last Pangemanann sees that his true opponents are not Minke and his followers, but rather the dynamism and energy of a society awakened.

Narrated by Pangemanann, a native policeman assigned to monitor Minke and his followers, House of Glass offers a dramatic story and subtle meditation on the role of the native collaborator with colonialism. It is a book founded, in the words of the Washington Post, "on mankind's potential for greatness and shaped by a huge compassion for mankind's weakness."

The Buru Quartet tells the fascinating and multifaceted story of Indonesia's birth as a nation. Now the fourth most populous country on earth, Indonesia emerges in all its promise in this masterpiece of world literature.
