Order Prometheus Pinball

Afrizal Malna, Prometheus Pinball, RSP: 2020

In this book, Afrizal Malna (b.1957), writes his memoirs through the materiality and violence of everyday life in Jakarta, between the late 1950s to the end of the century. The stories are narrated in a style between prose and poetry. His writing shows how the text and the city and the body are all mutually constitutive; each making the other. The book explores practices of archiving, technology and writing. This is a rich and detailed account of urban Jakartan life in through the lens of one of Indonesia’s sharpest, most innovative and most insightful authors. * This text is in Indonesian. 306pages. ** For distribution in Australia.
