Well, while reading this thread I realize it's not so bad to speak a language that is only shared by some 20 millions of people: we don't have a giant lot of writers... but books in other languages are easily translated into Dutch, and not only English books...

So I was almost shocked to hear writers as Jose Saramago, Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Karl May being called 'Authors not too many people know about'.

Want to hear a Dutch recommondation? Harry Mulish's 'De Ontdekking van de Hemel' is translated (The discovery of heaven).

The autors from Belgium I like don't have many books translated in English. (OK, there is The misfortunates' from Dimitri Verhulst. But Tom Lanoye has no English books yet.)
