Looking for an international reading-recommendation list?

Here are thirty-seven standout titles from the modern Western canon, all chosen by actual readers.

This year, the Hay Festival decided to launch the Eurovision Book Contest, to align with the Eurovision Song Contest (which just took place).

Each book comes from a country whose musicians competed in the song contest, was published since 1956, and won the most public votes to emerge on top.

Literary Hub has listed each Eurovision Book Contest title along with a sentence of praise from a critic.

What's next for these books? The Hay Festival will host a discussion about them on June 2.
