Madame L thinks this is one of the best short stories ever written. She hopes you will follow this link to "A Hunger Artist" and read it. Then please tell Madame L what you think of itl.
Why does the hunger artist fast?
“Because,” said the hunger artist, lifting his head a
little and, with his lips pursed as if for a kiss, speaking right into the
supervisor’s ear so that he wouldn’t miss anything, “because I couldn’t find a
food which tasted good to me. If had found that, believe me, I would not have
made a spectacle of myself and would have eaten to my heart’s content, like you
and everyone else.”
