My Mistress's Sparrow is Dead (edited by Jeffrey Eugenides) – Not your typical love stories in this collection. A few favorites: "First Love and Other Sorrows" by Harold Brodkey, "Love" by Grace Paley, and "The Bear Came Over the Mountain" by Alice Munro.
A Fine Balance (Rohinton Mistry) – Sad, funny, richly written. One of those books where the characters are so well developed it's hard to remember they don't actually exist. I'm sure I'll read this again one day.
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena (Anthony Marra) – A bleak but beautifully written story, and I'm in awe that this is his first book. I can't wait to see what else he writes.
How about you? Read anything great lately?
