Das Paradies kann einem ganz schön auf den Magen schlagen. Was nützt schon der schönste Palmenstrand der Welt mit feinstem weißen Sand und blauer Lagune, wenn man von einer lästigen Darminfektion gezwungen wird, den lieben langen Tag in einer schäbigen Schilfhütte vor sich hin zu dösen?

One of the best, most succinct short stories I have ever read. Even before I had read Middlesex or even heard of Eugenides, I read this in a best short story collection and was blown away. It is a masterpiece. Even if you don't like his other work, read this.
