But among the other authors I like (and there are many), if I were to pick a few who I think have "timeless" potential, I would put Alan Furst at or near the top. Joseph Kanon is another candidate, but his output is insufficient. If Phillip Kerr were to write more stories along the lines of his BERLIN NOIR triology, and especially if he were to throw in a few short stories along the way, he would also rank up there.
My recomendations would be The Intrepreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Bob mentioned he likes Chekhov's short stories.
