Sándor Jászberényi in B O D Y

“I was born a feral beast.

At the time of my birth, I tore my mother apart. It wasn’t on purpose. I think the circumstances caused it. There was a lot of blood in the hospital room.

My father, who gutted animals as part of his occupation, couldn’t bear to look.”

– from “A Western Tale” by Sándor Jászberényi, translated from the Hungarian by Diana Senechal
