For some reason, there seem to be loads of Czech authors whose works have been translated but very few Slovakians — do you have any idea why this might be? So the czechs made an impact with writers like Kundera who became immensely popular in the western world not so much in czech republic as he was a commie when young and Kundera is trying to hide it. So the czechs made an impact and were relatively popular, however few years after the velvet revolution the western media stopped caring about these countries, and the publicity stopped. The czechs were already known and in demand, they were bohemian after all, and were better at selling themselves.
I did the Slavonic studies module which was great fun although they talked about Czechoslovakia there was rarely ever mention about any slovaks, even though the module included hungary who are anything but slavs. This is fantastic!!! It is a great book and it was recently on at the National Theatre. Thanks very much Michelle. Sounds great. I love your blog! For the Philippines, you must read Ilustrado by Miguel Syjuco. Thanks for a great site.
Really enjoying myself, definitely adding to my to-read pile. Brilliant stuff — just the encouragement I need as I get in from an evening out and sit down to being the next post…. This site will be very useful to you, because we are doing something similar. Good luck and enjoy your reading! Marvellous — thanks. Great to hear from fellow literary globetrotters. I am a proud Moldovan!!! Do you have any recommendations of novels, short story collections or memoirs I might be able to read in English translation? Great — thank you. I will try to get hold of a copy of Moldavian Autumn. This is SUCH a cool idea!!!!!!
I love learning about other cultures, and I think one of the best ways to immerse yourself is to read their literature. This is a brilliant idea. I wish I had come across this blog earlier. I think I might take this reading list and make it my own! Pingback: read 3 books a month pontify. Very nice, inspiring list. I am from Hungary, so I looked at your Hungarian choices with special curiosity, it was interesting to see, what would someone from an other country choose to read. I have to say, you made some very nice picks there! It is a very powerful book.
Sorry, misspelled it: Fatelessness. Love your blog. If you need some inspiration for Dutch books, I have a new blog focussing on Dutch Literature: littledutchbook. I would definitely put Discovery of Heaven by Harry Mulish on your list. And if you can find it Out of Mind by Bernlef, very powerful book! Happy reading! Thanks very much for these. I am thrilled to find your blog! Wow, what a great and ambitious reading list! I was happy to find some books under Oman, where I am living now as an expat. I will have to get my hands on those books.
Are you only reading novels, because the true story Eleni Greece is amazing as well. I look forward to following your quest. I too love reading books that are set in other countries, written either by native writers or expats who have traveled or lived in those countries. But my list is determined by my travel dreams. Good to hear from you. Wow, Oman must be a fascinating place to live. Oh dear, I realized after I sent the comment that you were probably only including native writers. He actually was born and lived in Greece until he was 9 or 10, at which time his mother sent him away to America to his father.
Because the Communists in Greece were taking children from their parents to indoctrinate them in Soviet bloc countries, she defied them and snuck Nicholas away. For that she was killed and this is the story of her life. So I would consider him a native writer. But it definitely has been an experience! Pingback: A Year of Reading the World.
Pingback: Tema Narrativa. I have begun a similar project. I am restricting myself to short stories. You have done a lot of great research. If you have any suggestions I might have a go at translating one or two I can only handle some Western European languages. Also, could we have a shortlist of your favourite discoveries from the project? Thanks for sharing your adventures with the great reviews! Yes, there are plenty of things that should be translated out there. Portuguese- and French-speaking African countries are particularly badly served when it comes to translation.
All the best for Great project, Ann! Lovely to meet another Cantabrigian in the blogosphere I went to Newnham. It reads more like a story than a poem, and is a reasonably short book although deeply moving. Thanks — nice to meet you too. The poem sounds interesting. A magnificent project, Ann. The Girl in the Mirror. Great author. Afghanistan — The Bookseller of Kabul — written by a Norwegian journalist Asne Seierstad though, so not sure where or if it would fit in. In your initial post, I read your musing on the definition of country and it reminds me of that in some ways.
Rigoberta is a member of an indigenous group and the book recounts the plight of her people. By a stroke of luck, I just happened to stumble across a blog that mentioned yours and I was so excited by the concept, I had to stop by! Thanks Sarah. So glad you stopped by. All the best for the New Year. Thank you! Good project Ann! I am from morocco. I saw what you have read about moroccan literature. I can bring you some names if you are interested.
Thanks — I only had time to read one book for each country, but I am adding as many as I can to the list. Feel free to email your suggestions to ann[at]annmorgan. You welcome! Alright,I will definitely send you my suggestions. Thanks — yes. I simply could not leave your web site prior to suggesting that I actually enjoyed the standard info an individual provide in your visitors? Is going to be again steadily in order to inspect new posts. Great list. Simple but wonderful. Hi there, I really like the idea of this blog and project.
Well done for completing it.
Again, well done!! Oops apologies, I just read the bit at the start where you say the list are just recommendations. But in any case, which of the Japanese books did you choose in the end? Thanks — I chose Manazuru if you click on the country names it takes you to the review for each country. Thanks for stopping by! Pingback: The Off Season. Great fast fun reads. Thanks — sounds like these would have been good contenders for the Rest of the World list….
I felt very proud of myself. Your project reminds me a little of that year in my teenagehood. Great stuff — thanks very much. The Nobel Prize project sounds fascinating. Sounds intriguing…. Yes it is…Gibran, for me is peace… I recommend u, when you want something to let you out of all the worldly mess, just go through Gibran..
Best of luck.. Love, Ghaniya Aureen. Hello from Finland.
I was curious to see which book represents Finland. Anyway, congratulations for your magnificent tour around the world with books! Sinuhe is a wonderful story but set in Egypt, could have been written by any nationality. Hi Ann I suggest the following books from India. The first Zero Degree is a translation fron Tamil. The Author Charu is a critically acclaimed writer.
You would love this book written in a non linear, more like a jottings of a schizophrenic mind. Also Alchemy of desire by Tarun is a good one. Even VS Naipaul loved this one. Thanks, it sounds fascinating. The project has finished now, but I might well read it for my own interest. Pablo Palacio es may be the best Ecuadorian writer. Hello from Spain.
Lovely and hard books the spanish novels chosen in the list. Brilliant idea. Just read the story in the bbc site. I would like to add a very good title: Sefarad, from Antonio Munoz Molina. All the best. Thanks — it sounds great. Thanks for the comment. How on earth did you read all those books in one year. I think it was just about being organised and more than a bit obsessive.
I worked out how many pages I had to read each day and stuck to it. Hi, For the obsure books that you had either had translated or had one of kind mailed to you. Is it possible for you to host them somewhere so that the rest of us could read? I am planning on using your list as a guide and read all the books you listed, just not sure I will be able to get hold of some of them. Hopefully this project will encourage publishers to make them and other books like them more accessible to other readers. Thanks for your comment. Good luck and what a nice way to discover the world.
As a teacher i would suggest my students too to get hold of books good reads from different countries and read. Thanks for these suggestions — my final list is on the site. You can click the country names to see what I read for each nation. Nice project. Now, when this is over, I recommend to you a Romanian writer — Dan Lungu. Pingback: The list Mafeesh Space. Great idea! My favourite Canadian novel…. Dear Ann, Looking at the Bulgarian part of the list I think there are better choices.
Pingback: Le scelte italiane e tedesche di Batsceba Hardy Scalino. Pingback: Davide Fanciullo, lettore e traduttore dal bulgaro, serbo e macedone Scalino. Good luck! Great list by the way!!! A great selection not only because it includes me ;-. Think you might like them. Sounds interesting, thanks. Thank you so much for posting and sharing your list.
This is truly awesome. I am strongly considering doing this next year. Kudos to you! Thanks Kristina. The first two are certainly compulsory. The Mathee novels will make you fall in love with the landscape of my birth — I still cry through most of her descriptions of the coastal forest — and the playwrights and poets give deep insight into the political times. I just started my own book review blog and the twist is that I want to feature small local book shops as well as have folks send me books they would like for me to review.
Any suggestions for a new book blogger? You are doing a great job! For Saudi books I do not recommend girls of Riyadh novel since it is written by a very beginner author. You might want to read something for Dr. Ghazi Al-Gusaibi. From Portugal, I suggest Fernando Pessoa. Helen Caldwell. London: W. I loved your project! It made me realize, once again, how powerful literature is, and how powerful each one of us human beings are just by the fact we can communicate — talking, drawing, writing or reading books. This blog is a information storehouse for readers. For India you can also add tagore works.
I have read a few of them. Yes — I love Tagore. In fact we had a song written from one of his poems at our wedding. For Tanzania I could recommend a novel published by a foreigner who lived there for many years and got involved in top level football — and got a privileged look into the society and the culture in the process.
I hope you enjoy the Lebanese literature in personal combination of French, Arabic, and English , the Arabic literature in specific, and global literature in general! But I would add to that the new Lebanese youth who are writing now in English and French in addition to Arabic, in fiction and non-fiction of all categories. There are many great publishing houses here.
Thank you for sharing your list with us! Wow — this is an impressive list. Need to read more I think! Pingback: The list Right to the Pen's Point. Pingback: Currently… My Heart's Content. Relato de um Empreendedor. Do you remember everything from all that you read..?? I only chose one book from each country, but it was still a lot of books! It was a great adventure — and yes, I can remember a lot of them. I think writing about them on the blog helped. Thanks for sharing this. Books I wish I could have suggested, but that are not translated yet?
Wow — thanks. What a selection. Good luck with your book! This words, his vocabulary, are one of the best things about his stories. I wish I could have the time and energy to read so many books at such a small period of time. Still, I will try to read some of your list. Pingback: Reading Around the World Random but not really.

India was definitely my toughest choice! Pingback: One Reader. One Year. Kutztown University Professional Writing. Just wanted to tell you that your blog has inspired me to do something similar! Brilliant choices! It captures the essence of a generation of Iranians I was a part of like no other. I hesitantly read it when it fort came out, as I was about to start post-grad studies in the UK. I liked it. For it identified the key players and predicted the political power of social media years before it could even be envisaged. But We Are Iran is about the children who grow up under the revolution and their legacy.
If you are interested in then they should read it. Thanks very much, Sara. We Are Iran is definitely on my to-read list. It sounds fascinating. Great to have your views. Plan your next Vacation. Pingback: Reading your way round the world PocketCultures. Pingback: Reading Around the World. Amazing Blog and books recommendations. I was curious what books of Mircea Eliade you have read in the Romania section.
Your list will be a big help! I hope your blog has inspired more people to read translated literature. I myself have always loved to read translated books even though many of my friends prefer books written in our native language Finnish. You said in The Atlantic that you basically only read books in English. Thanks Maria — always good to hear from another world reader. There are certainly lots of us out there. Best of luck with your own adventures! I would like to suggest u.

Lovely, thanks. Many of the books are difficult to find — a lot were sent to me specially by people who wanted me to read them. Some are more widely available however.

Only just discovered your blog, which is amazing. A few people have been doing something similar on Librarything.
What I find slightly depressing is how similar our lists yours and mine are, indicating perhaps how many countries we have very little access to literature from. Hi Andy. Yes, the sad truth is that there are many countries with only one author or even one novel commercially available in English as well as a number with nothing commercially available at all — I read a quite a few unpublished translations during my quest.
I hope projects like yours and mine will encourage publishers to back more literature from elsewhere. Good luck with the rest of your quest, Ann. Pingback: The list Palmilhando.

Mary Prince, born in Devonshire, Bermuda- the freed slave and anti-slavery agitator wrote her autobiography, which greatly influenced UK Parliament to rid the colonies of this trade. Thanks Charles. I read books from UN-recognised sovereign states plus former UN member Taiwan , which is why Bermuda is not on the list, a personal regret for me as I know the place well. It was however a contender for my Rest of the World wild-card choice to represent countries not on the UN list — and Brian Burland was the author in the frame for that.
Just happened to pass this column by sheer luck or rather good fortune now as I feel so encouraged to read more books. Such an inspiration. Keep up the good work and wishing you all of the best. This is an impressive list! Hope you find something you like! Pingback: Lumea in de carti. What an amazing thing to do. Being from India I am surprised that your list includes maximum books from here. Thanks Sanjeev. I had lots of great Indian recommendations from book fans in your country and around the world. I read your Canadian selections with interest, but may I suggest something from the eastern part of the country which has a deeper history?
I highly recommend any by Donna Morrissey. Her books take place in Newfoundland…another end of the world place. This is an impressive list that will take me more than a year to read. I noticed Sandra Cisneros is listed with the authors from Mexico. She is from the United States. Love this blog. The Italian books list seems a little too modern. I love Sciascia, but Italians can do much, much better than bloody Baricco!
Congratulations Sis!! I know its not the right place to ask questions but you read a lotta works from India. What do you think of this country sis? I actually only read one book from India for the project, although lots more were suggested and I hope to read many of them in the years to come. India is certainly an incredibly rich nation for stories! This is outstanding.
I have now added many of the books mentioned to my own reading list. This must have been an exhilarating, fulfilling experience for you. If only I had half the determination and motivation to accomplish something like this. Thank you for introducing me to literature pieces from around the world.
