Snow by Orhan Pamuk
Pamuk won the 2006 Nobel Prize for Literature, and Snow is a great example of why he's considered such a master craftsman. It's about a Turkish poet who returns to his homeland after a sojourn in Germany. Ostensibly, he comes back to write about a spike in suicides among teenage girls, but deep down, he's hoping to reconnect with the recently-divorced woman of his dreams. The result is a complex and disquieting ball of literary weirdness that never quite goes where you think it will. Turns out they don't give the Nobel away for nothing!
