Top ten short stories on crossing boundaries

Light Box is K J Orr's first collection of short stories. One of her top ten short stories that hinge on crossing boundaries, as shared at the Guardian:
"Wenlock Edge" by Alice Munro

A young female student agrees to spend an evening with her roommate’s controlling older lover. Boundaries of body and mind are challenged in a disturbing rite of passage, made more powerful by the girl’s visceral retrospective realisation of what has happened to her. Munro is masterful at testing boundaries, both literal and metaphorical.
