    These are some of my favourites:

    Lanark by Alasdair Gray

    Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie

    The Unicorn or The Bell by Iris Murdoch

    A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

    The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

    Resurrection or Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

    Crime and Punishment or Demons by Fyodor Dostoevsky

    The Plague or The Outsider by Albert Camus

    Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell

    Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

    For beautiful prose, I would first recommend Iris Murdoch.The two books I mention are favourties of mine, but 'The Sea, The Sea' is also fantastic (and won a Booker Prize).

    If you like Magic Realism you could also read Angela Carter - she rewrites traditional fairy tales with a modern twist. Try her book of short stories 'The Bloody Chamber', or her novel 'Nights at the Circus'.
