and David Foster Wallace - I am obsessed with his work.

I guess not *THAT* surprising, but my list reads almost exactly like yours, although I've also got Marquez and Borges up there, and I like Boyle's shorts better than his long-form work. I've also got David Mitchell near the top of my list, right below Foer and Wallace.

David Foster Wallace
Cormac McCarthy
Denis Johnson
Don DeLillo
Neal Stephenson

...consistently populate my top five, though Wallace has always, and one should think, will always find himself at the top of the list.
