Alice, the Sausage

by Sophie Jabes

What a strange, horrible and funny little story. I was quite shocked by this even while I was laughing - and it certainly put me off ice cream for a while.


Nice. That word sounded strange. Insipid. Tasteless. Flavourless. Odourless. Alice wondered what it could possible mean ... to be nice. What did it mean to be nice to men? Have sex without desire? Do the washing up and cooking? Say yes to everything without batting an eyelid? Antiicpate someone else's wishes and forget her own? Smile and cry secretly? Put up with everything?
Translated by Catherine Petit and Paul Buck
