I recently read The Smell of Old Lady Perfume by Claudia Martinez and loved it! Since the main character was from El Paso like I am, I found the novel very relatable. She has a great voice and a unique perspective on life. I also like anything by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. His story telling is really powerful. I like reading the translated versions of his novels but I also like to read the Spanish versions of his short stories to practice my Spanish reading skills.
