contemporary spanish lit

So, maybe some of you guys can help me out. I have just returned from a few months in Spain, and would like to continue reading books in Spanish to keep up my language skills. While I am familiar with much of the classic works, I'm interested in discovering some post-Franco contemporary literature. We read Obabakoak by Bernardo Atxaga and Soldados de Salamina by Cercas, and I enjoyed those a lot.

Some of my favorite contemporary authors right now are David Sedaris, Dave Eggers, Jonathan Safran Foer, etc. I also like beat lit and poetry, too. I'm looking mainly for Spanish authors, but really anything written in Spanish will do. I'm pretty open-minded, so feel free to suggest anything you like to read.

Thanks a lot!
