Description This collection of stories by Mary Gaitskill includes "Secretary", on which the 2002 film was based. The storylines revolve around personal relationships and the way in which those relationships are mutated by distant memories and imagined fantasies. Take, for example, "A Romantic Weekend." Beth and an un-named man meet at a party and are immediately attracted to each other. They plan to spend the following weekend together for some hot bondage and discipline, but the reality of the weekend that follows hardly matches up to the visions they each had hoped for.
