KIRKUS REVIEW

Thirty short stories, classical in style, romantic in content, written in the decade before the Spanish revolution. Most of them are culled from Delano's previous books, but a few are appearing in print for the first time. The briefest are more sketches, the longer ones good yarns, showing considerable technique in a popular Spanish literary form. They have varied locales, waterfronts, prisons, gypsy camps, etc. Sombre and detached, several are small gems of story telling. A good book to dip into at bedtime, for straight entertainment, in a pure, flowing Spanish that makes easy reading.
