As a homeland Indian, I have always wanted to see more desi representation in literature but more branched out in light of the various countries making up the South Asian territory. Reading more purposefully, I’ve taken the effort to read, recommend and promote more books by South Asian authors, with South Asian characters, and representing desi culture. Here is a hierarchical list of all such titles.
Carefully and comprehensively curated diverse lists of books that deserve a spotlight as either recommendations or anticipated reads. If you’re looking for specific lists like those of books by marginalised authors, authors of colour, ownvoices representation, and other such titles for you to add on your TBRs, do check out these posts. Book tags also diversely include titles and characters.
