Recommendations for fiction?

A friend in a sociology graduate program has turned to me for advice and I could use yours: she is required to read a book of fiction (a novel or short story collection) per week for a course, and wants recommendations.

I gave her Winesburg, Ohio, which she loved. I've thought of The Handmaid's Tale, The House of Mirth, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, but everything else I consider seems either too lengthy or too light. There are no restrictions on her choices except that they have literary merit. Thanks for your help.
