considered one of our leader reservations in publishing the memoir lay within the author’s description of it as a “documentary novel,” yet we came upon that the “fictions” within the narrative relate typically to Dr. Fusayama’s dramatization of the motion via placing into direct speech his thoughts of the overall tenor of his conversations with many of the significant protagonists. As he notes in his Preface, he recorded his memories instantly after his repatriation to Japan, and it truly is obvious that his rendition of the occasions he witnessed are real to his perceptions on the time. Dr. Fusayama has no longer replaced the names of the main old actors concerned, and, as he reassured us:
“In fact fictional names have been used only for Jusuf and his lover, Merry. Jusuf was once killed within the warfare yet his family members are alive. Merry is usually alive someplace in Holland. on the grounds that Jusuf used to be suspected to be similar with enemy, i don't wish to embarrass them by means of disclosing the genuine names. This hiding won't impact the historical past simply because they didn't play any major role.”
Dr. Fusayama’s memoir bargains an strange and illuminating account of this era in Sumatra’s history.
