reading recommendations?

June 23, 2006

Lately I’ve been reading too many mediocre books and am longing for some books that will wow and inspire me, the kinds that one finishes with a sense of awe. I’m looking for books like those written by Wallace Stegner, TC Boyle, Jhumpa Lahiri, the Russian masters, Junichiro Tanizaki and Theodore Dreiser. If anyone has recommendations of fantastic, well-written and moving books, fiction or non-fiction, I’d appreciate the suggestions.

Since I am planning a visit to Nicaragua in the future, I’d also appreciate recommendations of books written in Spanish and/or about Nicaragua.

Hi,
Have you read the stories and novels of the great Kyrgyz writer Chingiz Aitmatov? If not, try him!
