Abstract

The 1970s have been boom years for certain sectors of the Indonesian publishing industry. The expansion is especially evident in th e field of 'popular' literature. After the turbulence of the sixties young gifted authors have taken to writing with a passion and ability welcomed by both publishers and readers. In a country where even outstanding best sellers were previously only selling a total of 10, 000 copies, the new breed authors are now frequently tripling that figure. Although dismissed by many critics as producing works of questionable 'literary' merit these author s nonetheless wield a distinctive influence upon this decade's Indonesian literature.
