Daily Dose

From Body Snatcher, by Juan Carlos Onetti


"Almost all of them were blond; their hands were big, red, and rough.  Their faces gave the same sensation of use as their hands: They seemed to have dealt with joys, memories, fears, and convictions by touching them, holding them, rubbing them against themselves.  Doing that made these people lose some of their original form here and there -- in their temples, their eyes, their foreheads, around their mouths."

From Chapter XXV
