Vladimir Sorokin

I'd like to recommend Nikolai Gogol's Dead Souls, a Russian metaphysical book with fantastic language, and Ada, or Ardor by Vladimir Nabokov. It's plotless, but that's not a bad thing; you can pick it up from any page and enjoy it just as you would if you were reading it all the way through.

Sorokin is the author of Day of the Oprichnik and the Ice trilogy
