Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I think all of Samuel Beckett would qualify. (I didn't vote for them, because I hate Beckett.)

Albena Did you see this? A little bit after this list was created, an article appeared in "The Guardian" on the same subject. What a coincidence!

Dan Vyleta's top 10 books in second languages

Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Interesting ... so I've now also learned the "educated" expression for this kind of thing -- "exophonic" writing!

Good points about Lucian of Samosata and Adelbert von Chamisso, though.
