    I would go with an Eastern European, Japanese, or Scandinavian author, depending on what you're looking for. The Japanese (or the ones who I've had the pleasure of reading) tend to go for quirkier, more stylistic pieces while the Scandinavians go for very methodic, mythical, and, yes, difficult pieces. The Russians have writing like a thick, hearty soup: it's so full of plot, character, and detail. Not a light read. I would say that the Japanese have the most modern read, in a manner of speaking.

    Here are some Scandinavian authors:

    Sigrid Undset

    Halldor Laxness


    Haruki Murakami

    Mitsugu Saotome


    Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    Leo Tolstoy

    Other Eastern European:

    Zbigniew Herbert (Polish)

    These are kind of my opinion- Mitsugu Saotome is more a name that I know of as opposed to works that I've read, but you can give him a shot if you'd like. I hope that you find a good author and that you do well on your term paper. :)

    some people are are in simple terms shallow. It's the loud minority that all of us hear the main. There's in simple terms no thank you to close them up. Anywho, my opinion: i think of people are very severe high quality and would take that first step as quickly as we want it. regrettably lots are ignorant, yet that's the comparable with each and every united states of america. The british are very accepting and extremely sort! some would be cocky, yet so can all and sundry from everywhere The Irish scare me, nonetheless they provide the impact of being very relaxing and outgoing! Cultures are diff. and the Irish look a yet greater blunt and loud. somewhat the alternative in Canada The Australians, nicely they are very severe high quality besides! Australia is a yet of a lonely united states of america floating over there by skill of themselves, and could be a secret, yet they have a great experience of humour and great accents! those I even have met are very sort. :]
