Indonesia Anonymus

We are a group of Indonesians, ranting about our beloved country. This blog is a result of many people grumbling about many things in many ways.

Anonymus is the Latin word for anonymous, the correct English spelling. The Latin spelling, however, is traditionally used by scholars in the humanities to refer to an ancient writer whose name is not known, or to a manuscript of their work. Read more at Wikipedia.

This can't be right

But it is.
With humility we present to you our first book, published by Gramedia Pustaka Utama.
It's in Bahasa Indonesia, so our sincere apology to our english-speaking readers.

in keeping with this blog's tradition of being non-profit, net income from the book's royalty (if it sells, that is!) will be directed to charitable activities in education.

Already available at Gramedia bookstores.

Kopi Merah Putih

ISBN: 978-979-22-4529-5
PT Gramedia Pustaka Utama

A bit more description about the book can be found here (in Bahasa Indonesia)

Yes, some are developed further from our existing posts, because that's what brought PT Gramedia and us together in the first place.
But it is not an exact translation. For some posts we elaborate more (can't do that in blog because it will make the post too long to read. With books we can get away with writing longer).

The footnotes are also deeper with more explanations.

Some chapters were written exclusively for the book and not posted on our blog.

Thank you for reading! we hope we did not disappoint.

Coba Gramedia online store.
