Help A Smurf Find Peace!

I am looking for Zen/Taoist philosopy in novels/short stories.  Please recommend such books, similar to Siddartha by Hesse that I can read.  It's easy to find piles of nonfiction books on Buddhism and books that are the author's personal philosophy and experiences.  But I'm looking for page-turning, entertaining narratives about characters living the way of the tao/zen.  This has been a challenge for me.  Your help would be appreciated greatly.  Thanks.
