Komedie Stamboel reviewed in

A very fine Indonesian-language review of my book The Komedie Stamboel: Popular Theater in Colonial Indonesia, 1891-1903, was just published on the website of C2O, a progressive library, cinametheque and cafe in Surabaya.

The reviewer, who is anonymous, also cites my article on Yap Gwan Thay which appeared in an edited collection titled Sadur: Sejarah Terjemahan di Indonesia dan Malaysia (KPG, 2010). This piece has yet to see print in English, as far as I am aware.

The Indonesian-language translation of The Komedie Stamboel has been delayed by factors beyond my direct control, but it is good to see that the book is being read and discussed in Indonesia.
