Second that, also because there is a sense in which for these classic the comparative advantage of discussing them in the book club are lower (because of so much written on them) than for less known stuff. The problem is finding English translations (let alone ebook versions). I came across this article in the Guardian, but could not find much. I am not giving up just yet though...

EDIT: I'll nominate The Silent Steppe:


(from here)

Available as pbook only, I am afraid, and not cheap, e.g. here: wasn't quite sure whether this is too much, but I guess "secondments" will tell!
Silent Steppe is the book that my friend suggested. It would now have four nominations if my last post had followed yours. Maybe someone else will do the honors? I was concerned not only about the price, but also that the Amazon link showing only one copy. That and my local library system not having any copies.
