I'd rather say a favourite author - Victor Pelevin, some of his works are translated in English. He is the best Russian author now (modern).
The first book I read, I barely understood, yet I loved it. I thought I was high or he was high... LOL
It took me a few readings to really understand him (maybe I am still not quite there yet). He is very philosophical yet funny, so even if you don't connect all the dots, it is a pleasure to read. I think he is the author who influenced me the most.
I used to read and reread Erich Maria Remarque. Dostoevsky as well.
In my opinion, books that are good are always worth rereading. When I read Kafka, I thought it was torture, I am pretty sure I will come back to him.
Who knows? One thing is for sure - my apartment is mini-library, I keep my books even from childhood.
