About a Spoon

What would you need the most if – and don’t say that will never happen to you! – if you were a refugee somewhere, abandoned in some transit camp? A knife? No! A spoon! To eat. To eat – everything looks like soup there. A truth told by Primo Levi in some pages of his book ‘If this is a Man’, and told to me by a friend of mine, a Hungarian refugee after the 56 Soviet invasion, and heard again from a Khmer Rouge camp survivor. About a spoon, a black tale, a deep black fantastic comedy on New Year’s Eve.
