List: More books by writers of Indonesian heritage

Book Chronicles / Recos


I made a list back in 2018 of the books available in English that I had read so far from writers of Indonesian heritage. I wanted to keep updating that list, but I forgot. So, instead, I decided to make a new list, and here we are. This list is absolutely not exhaustive and only includes work that I’ve finished reading. If you want a more comprehensive resource, I recommend idwriters.com. This particular list has a strong emphasis on poetry. I feel like I’m still a poetry novice, so my reviews are mostly based on vibes. I’ll include links to more serious, insightful reviews if they’re available. I’ll also note when a work has been translated from Indonesian to English. I haven’t done as much reading as I’d like to this year, so I’m hoping that I’ll get inspired after putting this list together. I hope you find something here that interests you. Happy reading!
