I'm going to nominate Purge, a 2008 novel by Estonian author Sofi Oksanen. Available in ebook.

Briefly, Purge is a story of two women forced to confront their own dark pasts, of collusion and resistance, of rape and sexual slavery set against the backdrop of the Soviet occupation of Estonia. (from Wikipedia).

A review from The Guardian.

I hope I can say without sounding churlish that I'm a little fatigued by doorstopper Russian classics and that I'd love to see us pick a recent novel from one of the newly independent former Soviet republics and not necessarily this one. Especially if someone has a recent book from one of the Muslim countries, please, bring it on!
