An Impossible Witness of The Armies

  • Lotte Buiting

Abstract

In an unnamed town in rural Colombia, a retired colonel spends entire afternoons in the privy, suffering from his wildly flowering intestinal flora. In another rural town, San José, a retired schoolteacher sits down on a cafe’s terrace to give his injured knee a rest. As he is about to leave, he realizes he has unwittingly wet himself. These two aging men, both tormented by the ailments of old age that put them into humiliating situations, are separated by almost fifty years of history and literature, and yet their worlds are remarkably similar.
