We are honoured – and elated – to publish this year’s selection of emerging writers. From Andre Septiawan’s Suara Murai, whose call for home infuses his poetry, to Pratiwi Juliani’s Atraksi Lumba-Lumba, whose collection of short stories explores the darkness and deceit of the human heart, to Muhammad Wahyudi’s Serayu Malam, who pulls us into his characters’ lives as they embark on a cross-country train trip, to Darmawati Majid, who appears and disappears between tradition and modernity within her short stories. These work spans across style, themes, and movements within the archipelago, and represent the best and the brightest of the generation.
“Every time I finish reading a book, I feel carried away.”
Tatyana Akman is an actress, model, musician, artist, and all-around gracious hostess. On a quiet Monday morning, she invited Comma over into her villa, hidden behind lush trees and adorned with batik, where she resides with her partner, Samo Rafael and her sphinx cat, Riddler. She tells us about her life that lies somewhere between fast and slow, and everything that surrounds it: art, music, nature, love, and of course, literature.
We are a publishing initiative within Penerbit KPG
dedicated to works of fiction, nonfiction, and everything
in between by contemporary emerging writers. We are
interested in writings that are tender, intimate, and limitless.
Writings that last. Writings with a life of their own.
