Your favorite foreign literature(s). It could be a translated or original one.

Hey fellas!

Have you ever read literature from other countries? well, i know we all read Harry Potter and such, but then again, why you choose to read those foreign literature, and what's starting it?

Mine would be The Dead of Ivan Ilyich and War and Peace, both are written by Leo Tolstoy, it was originally Russian, but it goes like legendary popular, and got translated. my story with these books started when i met an old russian literature lecturer in my university, he talks a lot about Tolstoy, encourage me to read it. And i liked it because it goes on quite similar with indonesian literature which the conflicts come internally and in non-vulgar style. 

So yeah, share your answer, it could be in any language, i'll figure out the meaning and learn from it. Thanks fellas! 




Albert Camus's "L'Etranger" (The Outsider) was the first non-English book I read.


"Aujourd'hui, maman est morte. Ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas."  A classic.

French classic? the quote seems poetical, what's the books about? i could only see that "morte" means "dead" eh?
