A list of writers I have recently read and some from a longer time ago:

Antonio Munoz Molina- his Sepharad is a masterpiece.

Javier Cercas-Soldiers of Salamis, The Speed of Light, Anatomy of a Moment

Roberto Bolano. Between Parentheses his non fiction is an interesting complement to his novel and stories I think 2666 is a masterpiece as is Savage Detectives How many writers can claim more than 1 masterpiece?

Enrique Vila-Matas- Montano's Malady and Bartleby are the best.

Antonio Lobo Antunes- The Land at the End of the World-brilliant

Goncalo M.Tavares- Learning To Pray in the Age of Technology- in addition to being one of the great titles for a novel is a frightening story of authoritarianism that strikes a chord today.

Antonio Tabucchi, though Italian thought of himself as Portuguese. The Missing Head of Damasceno Monteiro and Pereira Declares.

feel free to add more: Pessoa, Saramago, Cervantes, etc.

This is off my turf...Cervantes, Pessoa, and Saramago, plus of course Antunes...these I know. Otherwise...The Family of Pascual Duarte...and I think that's where i am stud. Julian Rios (?), seemed a difficult translation--I couldn't read the book Larva, but I had the feeling that his spirit was absent in translation...
