Text heard on Sample:
What did you say  -  they found another one?
  -  I can't hear you  -  this morning
another one floating
in the river?
talk louder  -  so you didn't even dare
no one can identify him?
the police said not even his mother
      not even the mother who bore him
      not even she could
they said that?
the other women already tried  -  I can't understand what you're saying,
they turned him over and looked at his face, his hands they looked at,
they're all waiting together...

            Ariel Dorfman, translated Edie Grossman
