WHAT IS SECRET?

A comprehensive, though not very selective gathering of 37 stories by more than two dozen writers, featuring such well-known ones as Maria Luisa Bombal and Elena Castedo, and also diarists and writers for popular magazines. Its contents, which embrace varieties of domestic, sexual, and political experience, are very uneven but include, among other delights, a wry political allegory (Agata Gligo's ""The Bicycles""), an ingenious anatomy of a marriage (Ana Mar¡a del Rio's ""Subway""), and a terrific children's story (Amalia Rendic's ""A Dog, a Boy, and a Night"").
