Hello, and welcome to my blog. Here, I post on topics related to Asian literature, which I define in the broadest possible manner. One week you may read about a 19th-century Japanese poet, the next an Indonesian drama, and the next a work of fiction written by a Westerner but with Asian themes. I lived in Japan for three and a half years, so I’m a bit more knowledgeable about Japanese writers, but all Asian literature interests me. I’m by no means an expert — not in Asian culture, Asian literature, Western literature, well, sadly nothing really. However I’m eager to explore, and this blog is a place that let’s me do that. If you have anything to add to the discussion, please comment. Enjoy!
