Original Title: La sección

In La Sección there are small bottles and mouldy salamis. Neither clothes nor products have their own label and everybody wears muddy boots. The job of the Section inmates is to keep the temperature down in order to please the weasels, the real owners of the place. Gizella Weisz has been sent here but we are not told how or why. In Kafka only one person is chosen but in this brief, intense story Bodor incorporates the whole of society and everyone suffers the consequences.
