In this literary discussion, titled “Sad Stories by Two Postmen between All Fish and Badrul Mustafa,” Dea Anugrah, Heru Joni Putra, Ni Made Purnama Sari, Ziggy Zezsyazeoviennazabrizkie together with Zen Hae will introduce their work to the public but they will also talk about a range of other subjects: the situation of literature today in Indonesia and the world; writing and reading habits among Indonesia’s younger generation.
How they absorb elements from national and world literature; how, through craftsmanship, they are able to create something that is entirely their own. What is it that pushes them to write about uncommon themes and where do they find their inspiration? What are their thoughts on ethnic identity, nationalism, the Indonesian language, and a world that has, in practice, no limits on the reading and writing of literature?
