The Diversity Corner #2 : March Updates, Asian Representation, and April New Releases

Another discussion ? Ugh ! I know, but I couldn’t help it because being an Asian, this one’s important to me. This absolutely brilliant post by Puput @ sparkling letters discusses everything wrong with Asian representation in literature. Also, here’s a tip, if you don’t understand something about another culture, just ask people from that culture about it. Please don’t assume things, learn the facts. 

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments or head over to the original post and join the discussion there.

Hello everyone, welcome to the second edition of The Diversity Corner! ♥

ICYMI, I talked about Muslim representation in books on my first edition, you could read it here. Today I’ll be talking about Asian representation and I teamed up with several Asian bloggers to put this post together! 😀 But before we get there, as usual, I’m bringing you some diversity-related news and updates ♣

P.S. it’s gonna be long, so grab your drink, settle into a comfortable position, and read 😉

  1. Such a great post!!! I totally agree about the Geisha books. Of course I read Arthur Golden’s version first, but then I stumbled upon Mineko Iwasaki’s book, and was just furious. Now whenever I encounter someone praising Arthur Golden’s book, I just point them to “the real thing” and try to shut up before I say too much and too loud 😀 it’s really not very good what he did in that book, especially for the reputations of all present-time geishas who have to deal with all the shit western clients might still be looking for, misled by such a narrative.
