Best Books in English, Non-British Author

British Imperialism exploited just about every corner of the globe in one way or another, but in its wake it left its language and the strong literary tradition that comes with it. More and more, some of the greatest writers in the English language come from former British colonies or are descended from non-English immigrants to the British Isles.
