Copyright photographer, Eastlit and Graham Lawrence.Sorry that this one is a little later than usual, but it is time to update our lists of popular Asian fiction and poetry in Eastlit. Once again we include the most popular Asian fiction and poetry over the last seven and thirty days. The all time list gets another update, too.

The pieces of work can be found by using the links in the top bar or in the Eastlit archive. Maybe it’s an idea to take a look at some of the other pieces? Everyone has different tastes, and quality does not always mean popularity!.

The next issue of Eastlit will be out on October 1.

Please note we exclude all the covers, content pages, contributor lists etc from these stats.
