Not knowing what your particular interests are, let me just say I benefited greatly from making my way - slowly - through the classic Doña Bárbara by Rómulo Gallegos. But then I was looking for examples of Venezuelan slang, & got more than I bargained for in it!

As a general rule I tend to have more confidence in original works than I do in translations, which I liken to kissing a girl through a screen door.
