I read none of those books, but some sound quite interesting. Among them:

DAUGHTERS OF THE SAMURAI: A Journey From East to West and Back. By ­Janice P. Nimura. (Norton, $26.95.) In 1871, three clueless Japanese girls were sent to America, to learn how to educate their countrywomen in modern ways.

Or

THE MEURSAULT INVESTIGATION. ­By ­Kamel Daoud. Translated by John Cullen. (Other Press, paper, $14.95.) This rich and inventive Algerian novel imagines the ­story of the Arab murdered on the beach in Camus’s “The Stranger.”

But I'll bet you anything that some of them could end up in the "Most boring book you ever read" list. super grin
