  • About the Book
  • Joko Pinurbo’s poetry is immediately recognizable for its simple language, accessibility, and the recurrent use of a number of specific but unusual motifs. His poems deal with a wide range of interpersonal relationships, with figures who engage in prosaic narratives that are deeply ironic, full of dark humor, and interwoven with nostalgia.
