The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
by Ekaterina Sedia
The Secret History is a romp
through 1990s Moscow, where the
underground is a world of magic and
secrets that may hold the answer to a
rash of mysterious disappearances. It
is an offbeat, engaging story that
offers a rich portrait of a grey
Moscow. It suffers only for lack of a
more aggressive editor’s pen – to
eradicate a slew of distracting typos.
