Dear Mongolia, 

Let's start with his son's biography: 

My Father, Envar Hoxha (by Ilir Hoxha) 

There is also an autobiography: 
The Artful Albanian: Memoirs of Enver Hoxha / by Enver Hoxha, Jon Halliday - 1986 

There are a couple of comprehensive book in French: 

L'Albanie d'Enver Hoxha: 1944-1985 by Gabriel Jandot 

Thomas Schreiber: Enver Hodja: le sultan rouge, Paris 1994

And in German: 
Enver Hoxha, der Pharao des Sozialismus und der Söhne des albanischen
Adlers / Rino Benincasa

Two academic books recommended by Wikipedia are: 

Albanian Stalinism, Pipa, Arshi, Boulder: East European Monographs, 1990 


Albania in Occupation and War, Owen S. Pearson, I.B. Tauris, London 2006

and another useful book about Hoxha might be: 

James O´Donnell: A coming of age: Albania under Enver Hoxha, Boulder 1999.

One can also find a list of books written by Hoxha at the site (this guy has fans?)

Some of his works are available through 

You should definitely read 
Comrade Loulo and the Fun Factory 

And Isma'il Kadare has written this book, which is a fictional account
of the topic:
The Successor (Pasardhësi) 2003 (trans. by David Bellos 2005)
