What authors write about particular places?

I'm looking for examples of authors who have an affinity for particular places in their books - especially authors who keep coming back to a city or region in several of their works.
* Armistead Maupin and San Francisco
* Jennifer Crusie and various places in Ohio
* Mark Twain and the Mississippi River
I'm sure there are zillions of these.
* all genres welcome
* all places welcome - I've read more about US locations, so non-US locations are especially great
* looking for both fiction and non-fiction, but fiction preferred
* comments very welcome - if you think an author captures a place especially well, or especially badly, or whatever, I'd love to hear it
