Now available in paperback, from the world-renowned author of The Mute's Soliloquy and The Buru Quartet comes a heartbreaking novel about innocence and power Pramoedya's The Girl from the Coast tells the story of a beautiful young woman from a fishing village who finds herself in an arranged marriage with a wealthy aristocrat. Forced to leave her parents and home behind, she moves to the city to become the "lady" of her husband's house. Pramoedya's breathtaking literary skill is evident in every word of this book, one of his classic works of fiction made especially poignant because it is based on the life of his own grandmother.

"As eloquent and sensual as James Baldwin...As hip and smart and bleak and dark as Dashiell Hammett...Pramoedya is a novelist who should get in line for the Nobel Prize."
"What sets The Girl From the Coast apart and makes it glow is the tremendous psychological acuity Toer brings to the subtlest of human interactions."
