Molyda Szymusiak

  • As we were in the midst of the dry season, the river at Vat Thmey was now only a big snake of mud.

  • Work went on monotonously, and our constant hunger was wrenching: rice powder and bran, which I sometimes roasted in an attempt to give it some flavor, had torn my insides to shreds. One morning I didn't have the strength to get up, and no one came to see what had happened to me. Everyone was so used to having people just disappear.

Molyda Szymusiak, Cambodian writer

(1965)
