Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Birth: Feb. 6, 1925
Death: Apr. 30, 2006

Author. He was born in Blora, Central Java. He was a candidate for Nobel Prize in Literature. Also, he was an outspoken champion of democracy, who spent several years in prison under successive regimes. His 34 books and essays have been translated into 37 languages. His best-known works - the Buru Quartet novels about Indonesia's independence struggle against the Dutch - were written on scraps of paper and surreptitiously smuggled out while he was imprisoned on the remote island of Buru. He was first jailed in 1947 by Dutch troops for being anti-colonialist, and later for Soeharto's military administration took over in 1966, and spent 14 years without trial on the penal colony on Buru island. He died in Central Jakarta. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
