In this immensely readable selection of stories by modern women writers, several, including Grace Paley and Joyce Carol Oates, portray the adult world through a child's eyes. Another enduring theme is a their powerful sense of place, with stories by Anita Desai, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Elizabeth Jane Howard combining rich local detail with glimpses of the world beyond the secret self.
