"The Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov
As others have said, not easy to answer, but Daphne du Maurier.
"Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese, "Brazil on the Rise" by Larry Rohter and "Nothing to Envy, Ordinary Lives in Korea" by Barbara Demick.
Fiction (familiarizing myself more at some point with South American writers) and non-fiction (for example "The Geography of Thought: How Asians and Westerners Think Differently... and Why" by Richard Nesbett).
I've always read and it is usually a mixture of fiction and non-fiction.
