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!
