Too Much Happiness, by Alice Munro

This is another brilliant collection of short stories by Canadian Nobel laureate Alice Munro, as usual grabbing you by the guts and concentrating character and plot into exquisitely distilled doses of everyday life. A lot of them seem to have been published first by the New Yorker and are still online there - I particularly commend Dimension and Free Radicals, which are both about death and murder but in very different ways. Well worth getting hold of.
