This short story from the collection Wild Child was originally published in the New Yorker.
Dámaso Funes is a medical miracle. He didn’t make a sound when he wasborn, and as the years go by it’s found that he doesn’t feel pain. Not when hepicks up hot coals with his bare hands or when he breaks his leg. To his fatherhe is a sideshow freak, a spectacle from which he can make money, but to thevillage doctor who delivered him he is much more. He is a marvel, a wonder ofgenetics—the next step of human evolution.
