The Anglosphere

Perhaps most of you are not aware but we are members of the Anglosphere, the set of all native speakers of English. America, of course, is the most dominant part, with England following quite close behind.

However lately I've been feeling the oppressive burden of cultural imperialism and to shuck this feeling off I'd like to hear some book suggestions from the fringe countries of the Anglosphere, ie Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, (wait, let me just hit up Wikipedia for a tic), Jamaica, Belize, Guyana, Nauru, Palau, The Phillipines, etc.

So please suggest some non-American and non-British books or authors.

Some Australian suggestions:

Cloudstreet by Tim Winton - I heard this voted as number one on some popular reading list. It's about two Australian families doing some random things. Beautifully written, though. Dirt Music is another good one by him.

The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay - Well I guess he's really South African but was banned from returning and settled in Australia. This book is about South Africa and Math. Kills two (Anglosphere) birds with one stone.

True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey - A book about an Australian bushranger and written as such. Spelling Nazis need not apply.

Bonus book And The Ass Saw The Angel by Nick Cave - He's a quite famous singer. This book is not enjoyable, understandable or enjoyable (it has to be said twice) but I have never met in a book so many words which I didn't know the meaning of. It's like he puked up a thesaurus. It's a very dark and depressing book, deranged perhaps. Good for the experience.
