The team at Lit CelebrAsian received a reader request for recent non-fiction titles and essay book collections related to diversity, race, or identity, so we gathered a few books by Asian authors and contributors released in 2017 for a starter’s list!
There’s an ocean of books out there, so let us know if there’s a non-fiction book that you’d recommend as well.
Thankful to our Lit CelebrAsian team members: Glaiza and Janani for taking the time to research and compile this list.
Note: Most of these titles are adult memoirs, personal essay/interview collections or historical accounts. Take note of the blurbs that share heavier topics such as war or mental illness as potential content warnings.
