I have pretty eclectic tastes, but tend toward contemporary literary fiction. Some favorites are Margaret Atwood, Elena Ferrante, Javier Marías, Dino Buzzati, Alice Munro, Flannery O’Connor. I'd love to read some authors I haven't read before, especially women writers. If they’re from outside the US, even better! Books in English, Italian, Spanish, or French are all okay.
Don't get this!
Please no romance. I'm also not really into high fantasy or sci-fi with lots of world building. I also don’t often read non-fiction, with the occasional exception for memoirs.
I prefer to read books in the original language if possible, so if a book was written in English, French, Italian, or Spanish, please get the original, not a translation. For any other language, a translation is okay - in fact I’d love to read more books in translation from languages I don’t know! If a book is in my library here, I have read at least part of it. Books with 4.5 or 5 stars I loved.
mmseiple's Secret Santa is nickdella. Help nickdella pick the right book.
