Ok..I will add this one, not exactly about Asia, but a most unusual novel about Japanese women who came to the US as "mail order brides," and the historical events that shaped their lives. Can be read in an afternoon but not soon forgotten:

And now turning to India, I read this a few months ago and thought it interesting but it is not an essential read:

But this new book, also about India, holds promise; I have it on my library list:

Before we close today and while we are on the subject of India, I will mention a 2006 novel set in that country that I thought well worth reading:
