NPR has a great list of authors translated into English to start you off on a reading adventure.
*Jonathan Coe, The Rotters' Club and The House of Sleep.
* Victor Pelevin, The Sacred Book of Werewolf and Buddha's Little Finger
* Boris Akunin, The Winter Queen
* Ludmila Ulitskaya, The Funeral Party.
* Ismail Kadare, The Three-Arched Bridge and Spring Flowers, Spring Frost.
* Imre Kertesz, Fateless, The Pathseeker.
* Antonio Lobo Antunes, What Can I Do When Everything's on Fire?.
* Per Petterson, Out Stealing Horses.
* Naguib Mahfouz, The Thief and the Dogs
* Muhammad Yusuf Quayd, War in the Land of Egypt
* Alaa Al Aswany, The Yacoubian Building.
* Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
* Carlos Fuentes, The Death of Artemio Cruz.
Interestingly, many of these authors have new books in translation and I thought it a little odd that NPR would claim that these are all great authors we have not yet heard of.....!
