Nobel Project

For my Nobel Project, I really want to read at least one book/work written by each of the laureates of the Nobel Prize in Literature.  This project might take some doing because a) I have a feeling some of the earliest laureates might be out of print and b) in the same vein might not be published in English (and I only read passably well in German and pitifully in French).
