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'.
