So If you're doing an author challenge and want to read a new author for every letter of the alphabet, what's out there by someone with an X for a last name?
Y is done and I might recommened Jasmine Yalenorn to those who are interested in cozy mysteries with a hint of the paranormal.
If you've got an author you like with a X name, please make recommendations here on specific books.
here's what i got so far for my A-z challenge:
U. Ludmila Utiskaya::: Medea and Her Children: A Novel
Thrity Umrigar:::The Space Between Us
V. Sally Vickers::: The Other Side of You: A Novel
Susan Vreeland:::The Passion of Artemesia
W. Virginia Woolf::: Mrs. Dalloway
Daniel Wallace:::Big Fish
Z. Koren Zailckas::: Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood

Hmm, I suppose Xaviera Hollander won't suit here, since it is her first name that starts with X ... or will it? :-)
At least it would spice up the alphabet. :-)
The Autobiography of Malcolm X. Many editions, here's one Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Autobiography-Malcolm-X/dp/0140028242/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1203634630&sr=1-3
ETA: Oops, I see you want fiction. Sorry, can't come up with one.

If I can't find anything else, I'm willing to be flexible. Spice is good.
"Ernesto Quinonez...EXCELLENT author. I absolutely LOVED Bodega Dreams and I have Chango's Fire on my shelf to read very soon."
I ordered Chango's Fire. It sounded more my style.
Please keep the suggestions coming. You have power, fellow readers.
