Please recommend books about people trapped together

I was relieved to hear that they found the Chilean miners alive, and amazed that they will be trapped for four months until rescue.
It also reminded me that I like reading books about people who are isolated somewhere for a long time. (I hope this doesn't sound morbid.)
I'm not so much interested in tragedy and death; I'm more interested in the psychology and group dynamics of people who are forced to live closely together.
Space station? Submarine? Post-apocalyptic abandoned museum?

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett comes to mind, or Antarctica by Kim Stanley Robinson.
Any other suggestions?
