The Bolivian government, namely the Ministry of Culture, produced a list with 15 of the most significant literary works (in the last 100 years?) of Bolivia.

  1. Historia de la Villa Imperial de Potosí, from Bartolomé Arzáns de Orsúa y Vela;
  2. Juan de la Rosa, from Nataniel Aguirre; 
  3. Íntimas, from Adela Zamudio; 
  4. Raza de bronce, from Alcides Arguedas; 
  5. Aluvión de fuego, from Óscar Cerruto; 
  6. La Virgen de las Siete Calles, from Alfredo Flores; 
  7. La Chaskañawi, from Carlos Medinaceli; 
  8. Los deshabitados, from Marcelo Quiroga Santa Cruz; 
  9. El Loco, from Arturo Borda; 
  10. Tirinea, from Jesús Urzagasti; 
  11. Matías, el apóstol suplente, from Julio de la Vega; 
  12. Felipe Delgado, from Jaime Saenz; 
  13. El otro gallo, from Jorge Suárez; 
  14. El run run de la calavera, from Ramón Rocha Monroy; 
  15. Jonás y la ballena rosada, from Wolfango Montes Vannuci.

From those, I only read two, Raza de Bronce and Chaskanawi, which were obligatory in my primary education.
