“At the Intervention to Stop the Epidemic of Obsessing”

This is the penultimate story in the Our Island of Epidemics series. It appears in Everyday Genius today, thanks to June’s guest editor, Alec Niedenthal.  Today, Jose Saramago passed away.

Here’s an excerpt from the story:

“The animal god said, ‘Justice justice justice justice.’

The King of Unrequited Love felt the magic fading as the animal god spoke, as if the island were saying, justice justice, back.”
