I only read 10 this month, because I had too much else on. Some interesting authors though:
- Anna Banti, a wonderful Italian writer, post-Second World War, whose write-up on Wikipedia really isn’t worth bothering to read. Along with Gombrowicz and Woolf, one of the best written novels I’ve read this year (well, if you like long, flowing sentences).
- Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Swiss writer, perhaps (like fellow-countryman Max Frisch) better-known as a playwright – much recommended, particularly if you like ridiculously convoluted detective stories.
- Mempo Giardinelli, an Argentinian writer who (on the evidence of this book) I don’t think much of. He’s won the very prestigious Rómulo Gallegos Prize, but doesn’t merit a page yet on (English) Wikipedia. – Not much of a page on the Spanish version either.
And some other writers, all reviewed here.
