Looking for books with absorbing stories with a mystical/Buddhist/Gnostic philosophical bent

I'm looking for recommendations for books for someone who has the following preferences: Loves Salinger, especially Nine Stories ("Teddy") and "Franny" in Franny and Zooey (the mystical aspects are particularly appealing); loves Steinbeck, especially East of Eden, favorite parts were those discussing the Biblical philosophy/hermeneutics. Any recommendations for books with a really good story but some strong elements of theology or philosophy, especially Eastern-influenced?
