Sunday Social

Sundays used to be for lounging with the papers, now they are just as likely for lounging with iPads. So if you're lazily clicking around looking for something to read, here are a few suggestions, focussing on what's going on lit-wise in Asia.

This week in Asian Review of Books
See the Asian Review of Books for ever-interesting discussion. Here are links to its newest reviews, excerpts, letters, essays, listings, translations, news items, and round ups:

Twitter and blog spots.
Each Sunday I suggest a Twitter account you may like to follow, and a blog I find interesting – either about books, or about Asia, or both.

Twitter spot
British Council Literature, @LitBritish. Connecting British writers with readers all over the globe. Showing not all Brits have turned their backs on the rest of the world, post the idiocy that’s Brexit.

Blog spot
GalleyCat: a catchall book blog for anything related to (Western) publishing and book industry news. It’s interesting, even though it barely acknowledges Asia exists. Click here.
