Putting together a reading list for a book club, and of course there are plenty of dudes in the mix already. Looking for more diversity, but in particular female authors. The list so far includes books from Tom Robbins, Haruki Murakami, Italo Calvino, Jean Toomer, John Keenedy Toole, Maxine Hong Kinston, John Crowley, and Bao Ninh.

If you could indicate how generally accessible your recommendation is, that would be great... I don't want to overwhelm the book club with too many dense, stylistically daring works, but at the same time, that kind of thing needs to be represented.
