About the blog

This blog participates in the movement that seeks to render visible literary texts written about Asia and by Asian authors. Emphasis is devoted to works from countries rarely spoken of, like those from the Southeast. Most of the posts are book reviews, recommendations and top lists, but also included are essays about literary criticism and feminist theory.
