It’s almost spring and we thought an Afternoon Tea Party would be a lovely way to celebrate the season. What will the spread look like, you ask? Well, there will be tea, of course, scented like spring. And some goodies that will complement it, including shortbread cookies and a sweet-savory spread for filling some cunning little finger sandwiches. Perfect for a propah afternoon tea. Or as accompaniments while curling up with your favorite book.

Featuring award-winning artisans from all over the U.S.

To reserve the ‘An Afternoon Tea Party’ Food box, subscribe before March 15.

This month, we continue our exploration of potential Nobel Laureates from all the world, with novels from Norway, Lebanon and Croatia.

The April book box will contain Croatian writer, Dubravka Ugrešić’s novel : The Museum of Unconditional Surrender

An Excerpt from the Novel:

In the Berlin zoo, beside the pool containing the live walrus there is an unusual display. In a glass case are all the things found in the stomach of Roland the walrus, who died on 21 August 1961. Or to be precise:

a pink cigarette lighter, four ice-lolly sticks (wooden), a metal brooch in the form of a poodle, a beer-bottle opener, a woman’s bracelet (probably silver), a hair grip, a wooden pencil, a child’s water pistol, a plastic knife, sunglasses, a little chain, a spring (small), a rubber ring, a parachute (child’s toy), a steel chain about 18 ins in length, four nails (large), a green plastic car, a metal comb, a plastic badge…

..The visitor stands in front of the unusual display, more enchanted than horrified, as before archaeological exhibits.The visitor knows that their museum-display fate has been determined by chance (Roland’s whimsical appetite) but still cannot resist the poetic thought that with time the objects have acquired some subtler, secret connections. Caught up in this thought, the visitor then tries to establish semantic coordinates, to reconstruct historical context (it occurs to him, for instance, that Roland died one week after the Berlin Wall was erected), and so on and so forth.

The chapters and fragments which follow should be treated in a similar way. If the reader feels that there are no meaningful or firm connections between them, let him be patient: the connections will establish themselves of their own accord.
