How about Kazuo Ishiguru?
I am eager to learn names of writers for who English is/was a second or a foreign language and who write/wrote in English. I mean: they write/wrote, not are/were translated. I'd be obliged for any names.
Let me start with the first one, the only one I am aware of: Joseph Conrad, a Polish writer.

What a stupid I am. I'm just reading Vladimir Nabokov's book, and isn't he one of the greatest writers of this type?
He certainly is.
I wonder what George Bernard Shaw's first language was? English or Deutsch? if it was the latter, he was also one of them.
And there was Jerzy Kosinski, another Polish writer writing in English...
