I know next to nothing about 20th and 21st century literature. What are some recommendations for "essential" novels that I can start with?

I read a lot of non-fiction and "classic" literature and am pretty well versed in 19th century and earlier stuff. I want to read more modern fiction and get a grasp on more recent important works.
Where do I start? What are the essential novels of the 20th and 21st century? I'm aware that this is an incredibly broad category but I really don't know where to begin.
