I guess I use the word “Catholic” authors (although the authors themselves didn’t want to be typecast), as authors who wore their faith on their sleeve, so to speak, either implicitly or explicitly, in their writing.
I was wondering if you were aware of any fiction authors who wear their Orthodox Christian spirituality on their sleeve in the same way as the authors listed above.
There seems to be an endless source of Orthodox non-fiction, but a dearth of Orthodox influenced fiction.
The best I have been able to come up with (and their orthodoxy and commitment to their faith varies from book to book) are authors like Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Nickolay Gogol, Nickolay Leskov, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, and Nikos Kazantzakis.
Can you make any suggestions to expand that list of authors whose Orthodoxy shines through in their writing (with available English translations)?
