Head Shot

"A journalist representing 'Soviet Russia' came and asked me to write about the atomic bomb. Our young guide Vlad told us how the partisans in Vietnam used bats instead of airplanes. They hung on the bats' necks a small sack of powder with a fuse, then the bats would go to nest in the garrets of the houses where the French soldiers lived; the powder would catch fire and the houses would burn...."

[Nikos Kazantzakis tr. G. C. Pappageotes]
