Ten of the best Spanish-language authors

At O: The Oprah Magazine, McKenzie Jean-Philippe shared a list of ten Spanish-language authors whose books will change your literary world. One entry on the list:
Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Notable works: The Shadow of the Wind, The Angel's Game, The Labyrinth of the Spirits

Perhaps one of the most widely-read Spanish language authors of today, Zafon's world famous books have been translated in over 50 languages. The Barcelona native initially only kept his mysterious, fantastical stories for the young adult genre. But then, his debut adult novel The Shadow of the Wind, gained international acclaim. He's won the Barry Award for Best First Novel.
