Favourite short stories

Top ten short stories in The Guardian. I believe I've got ten of my own, in no particular order, because I've never met a list I didn't like.
1) "The Third and Final Continent" by Jhumpa Lahiri
2) "Good Country People" by Flannery O'Connor
3) "Scenes" by Carol Shields
4) "Astonishing the Blind" by Jack Hodgins
5) "Wants" by Grace Paley (and everything by Grace Paley)
6) "True Trash" by Margaret Atwood
7) "Down At the Dinghy" by JD Salinger
8) "Mrs. Turner Cutting the Grass" by Carol Shields
9) "Moral Disorder" by Margaret Atwood
10) "Feathers" by Raymond Carver
