Gao Xingjian. Soul Mountain.
If you're a novice like me, get hold of Bobby Fischer teaches chess.
Christopher Reich. Betrayal of Rules.
The main protagonists are a doctor working for 'medicins sans frontiers' (borders without doctors) and his spy wife. The plot is quite outrageous. But worse it gets more outrageous. I forgot i read a previous forgettable book by the same author.

I'm not even sure I got the book of the title right.
