Murjangkung is A.S. Laksana's second short stories compilation after "Bidadari yang Mengembara, the best literary books in 2004 by Tempo magazine. Murjangkung tells about 20 short stories, with different themes that will take readers' mind somewhere, far far away, beyond our imagination.
As written on the front cover, this book contains stories about love - even things like supernatural ghosts. Read each story slowly, enjoy the strong characters, smart dialog, rich description and details and of course unpredictable endings.
This book was nominated in Khatulistiwa Literary Awards (KLA). Some said, this book should be the winner of KLA 2013. Dispite some criticism and excoriation, the jury leaded by Damhuri Muhammad had chosen Pulang by Leila S Chudori rather than Murjangkung.
