Some of these authors are far more readable than others. Some are a bit harder but tell a great story.
If I were choosing for myself, I'd go with Kurt Vonnegut, either Sirens of Titan or Slaughterhouse Five. Biting social satire cloaked in absurdism. Funny as hell, very fast reads.
My own runners-up, authors whose work(s) I've enjoyed, are Juno Diaz, Tim O'Brien, Joyce Carol Oates, John Steinbeck, and Amy Tan. Oh, and Ernest Gaines and Raymond Carver, if you like the sort of thing they write.

Oh man! SO many good authors on this list!
Personal favourites would be Kurt Vonnegut, like the others said (Slaughterhouse 5 is my favourite), but also Jhumpa Lahiri (read The Namesake, and then watch the movie! It's a sad/sweet love story that spans several generations of an Indian-American family), or Cormac McCarthy (try The Road, which is really dark but gripping apocalyptic fiction, or No Country For Old Men, which is a combination of Western and Horror).

You could get better answers if you could show a little more courtesy for asking for book suggestions.
That's Jhumpa Lahiri not ''Hong Lahiri, Jhuppa ''.
Try her book ''Interpreter of Maladies''
Google search the summary yourself.
