It's National Writer's Day in Venezuela

We commemorate November 29 after the birth of Andres Bello, classical writer who was Simón Bolívar's first teacher. I'll start with a book from a Venezuelan writer, and then I'd like to see your favorite, preferably (but not necessarily) not-so-well-known writer. Recommend away!
  1. "The Sickness", Alberto Barrera Tyszka
    A famous surgeon struggles to deal with his father's cancer and whether to tell him about it.
  2. Recollections of things to come- Elena Garro
    The story is told from the point of view of a town. Also fun fact she was married to Octavio Paz
