It's nice to see a list like that, the reviews are informative, I may check out a few of those books.

Thanks for the tip, blacbird, it's hard to find these sort of things.

What about sharing some of the little known gems we have stumbles across too?

I would recommend:
- "Out Stealing Horses" by Norwegian writer Per Petterson.
- "The Half-Brother" by Norwegian writer Lars Saabye Christensen.
- "Angels of the Universe" by Icelandic writer Einar Mar Gudmundsson.

OK; all of these 3 writers are well-known in their home country, but might not be so known abroad. They are all well worth reading.
