We have heard from the National Book Committee of Indonesia that our applications for translations of Afrizal Malna’s volume of poetry, Museum Penghancur Dokumen, and his collection of short stories, Pagi Yang Miring Ke Kanan, have been accepted. Daniel Owen, a poet based in Yogyakarta and Brooklyn is the translator for Museum Penghancur Dokumen. Andy will translate Afrizal’s short stories from Pagi Yang Miring Ke Kanan. Jorgen Doyle and Hannah Ekin, two artists currently based in Amata, APY Lands, are contributing various translations to this volume. Andy will also be translating Seno Gumira Ajidarma’s novel, Negeri Senja.
These books will be published in 2019. It is a privilege and a pleasure to work with these authors – and the poet and translator Daniel Owen – and to provide a space for their works for an audience who may otherwise be unfamiliar with their names.
