The Dinner, by Herman Koch. Dutch drama set over the course of a dinner between the narrator and his wife, and his politician brother and his wife. Decent portrayal of the characters, slow revelation of family secrets. Very good translation, and has a bit of social commentary about contemporary Dutch society. Not genius, but worth a look.
Also read a couple of Charles Stross' science fiction: Empire Games, where he picks up on his Family Trade series again after seven years. The series focuses on inhabitants of a medieval level parallel earth, who can travel to Earth, and are making themselves rich by running drugs across their version of America, then smuggling them back into our world. Then the US govt finds out.... This is a real return to form and I enjoyed it a lot. Also reading The Nightmare Stacks, book seven in his Laundry Files series (basically a pastiche of British spy novels mixed with Cthulhu-like horror). I'm enjoying it, but I'd be happy if he'd just wrap the series up, it's been going long enough.
