Wah! Our Dina gets described as a "glamorous young writer" in this article about the rise of Asian literature in The Age, which talks about:Here's our Dina* (left) with precocious Indonesian talent Vira Safitri (whose story has already been enviously (?) chronicled by Ted).
I wrote some time ago about how beautiful the most popular Indonesian female writers are, and it seems that Vira has the right credentials in that department too! As does of course Lakshmi Pamuntjak snapped here at her book launch.
*Since pea-brained-hormonally challenged gonks have the habit of stealing Dina's pictures from my blog and posting them on obscene websites, (it being apparently the only recourse that threatened masculinity can take when confronted with a free-spirited, open-minded individual like Dina) I give her the right to ask me to take this picture down. (But I hope she doesn't ... .) This incidentally was an issue that we discussed in a panel session on blogging at Ubud. (More on that later.)
Dina said why can't I draw a moustache on her picture. Anything to oblige, my friend.
