Interesting site. It's been a long time since I read Franny & Zoey, but Salinger is one of my favorite writers. Too bad he quit publishing. I also very much liked his Nine Stories.
Then there's August Wilson. I've been fortunate to have seen all of his plays except one: Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. I would like to actually read his plays, so maybe I'll start with that one if I can find it.
If you're not familiar with Tananarive Due, Check her out, especially My Soul to Keep and The Living Blood (the latter is the sequel to the former). She reminds me a lot of Toni Morrison and there is definitely the element of the magical in her work.
