Pico Iyer recommends

The Year of the Hare (1995)
Arto Paasilinna
"I love The Year of the Hare. . . Which of us wouldn't secretly want to live in a novel as fresh and as full of events as this one?"
thumb
The Red Highway (2009)
Nicolas Rothwell
"A masterful and unforgettable book."
thumb
The Buried Giant (2012)
Kazuo Ishiguro
"Completely astonishing. I can't think of another writer who keeps finding such new and radically unexpected ways of exploring—and deepening—his lifelong concerns. Which is a way of saying that I can't think of another writer who's so unswervingly serious, as well as impeccable, stripping away every distraction to get to the core of things, as a Beckett might, and attaining in the end an almost unbearable intensity of emotional directness."
