Deskripsi
Beauty is a Wound is never without intrigue and astonishing plot twists that will surely leave its mark on its readers. Yet, as unique as Kurniawan’s book is, it can often feel two-dimensional in its interpretation of gender. He uses rape and objectifying language to capture men’s callous disregard for women. However, he describes and romanticizes such sensitive subjects in tremendous and unnecessary detail that leaves one cringing, frantically reading certain parts just to get it over with. Additionally, one is left confused at the true purpose behind the book— is it a tale of generational romantic tragedy or a reminder of the true roles of men and women in Indonesia?
