I like challenging books that make you think, and leave you happy that you did. Typically, I find character driven literary fiction the most satisfying, although I in no way think of myself as a serious literary critic.

Dear Life: Stories

Dear Life: Stories - Alice Munro Outstanding, as usual. The fact that most of the stories take place decades ago in the Canadian countryside (with an occasional glimpse or mention of Toronto) seems to have the effect of slowing the pace down, and allows you to digest each story more completely. The four partially autobiographical short stories at the end were a nice surprise too.
