|Colmenero, Jenny||I quite like Banana Yoshimoto!
I quite like Stephen King---but I can only recommend The Shining, The Stand, and his memoir On Writing.
I've recently finished Yoshihiro Tatsumi's A Drifiting Life, which is good even if you don't know much about manga (I don't).
I also really recommend The Idiot, even if it takes you ten years to finish it.
