Popular Asian English Literature: Eastlit April 2015 Cover. Picture: Pingyao in Winter by Xenia Taiga. Cover design by Graham Lawrence. Copyright photographer, Eastlit and Graham Lawrence.These are the new lists of popular Asian English literature found in Eastlit. Unfortunately time means these are getting later and later. Sorry for that. Eastlit includes all the popular Asian English literature including fiction, poetry, artwork and non-fiction of the most recent seven and thirty days. Eastlit’s all time list of popular Asian English literature has also been updated. Due to popular request, we continue to provide direct links to each piece in our lists.

All of this popular Asian English literature and artwork can be read from the links on this page or just make use of the links in the top menu. Eastlit’s archive can be used for navigation, too. Hopefully it will also give you an opportunity to read some of the less read pieces. After all, we all know well read does not always mean the best!

The next issue of Eastlit will be out around the end of April or start of May.

Please note that we have a policy of excluding all the covers, content pages, contributor lists etc from these statistics.
