Here’s an infographic that needs the attention of the well-read.
GE Editing has assembled a list what it says are the mot iconic book set in each country of the world.
We include epic poetry like Pan Tadeusz from Poland, international best sellers like The Three Musketeers set in France, and books recently translated into English for the very first time like the Iraqi classic The Long Way Back. You will find books from favorite authors like Margaret Atwood and Anthony Burgess and discover vibrant new voices like Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Díaz.
Not having visited these countries or read all of the books, I can’t comment on whether the books are well-matched to each country.
