The theme for April is ‘Speak, Memory’ and each Boxwalla Book box includes:
The April Book Box is themed: ‘Speak, Memory’ inspired by Nabokov’s memoir of the same name. In this box, we feature writers from Germany & Rwanda as well as pencil themed stickers from CW Pencil Enterprise.
The first book in the April Book Box is acclaimed German writer W.G.
Sebald’s novel : The Rings of Saturn. Sebald’s novels deal with themes of memory, time, identity as well as the pushing of narrative structures. They contain photographs & other inclusions to supplement his words, trying to get to the ‘truth’ in indirect ways.In this novel that straddles the boundary of fact and fiction, the narrator is on a walking tour in the English countryside. The novel moves through discussions of literature, of memory & even of a film about silk cultivation in Germany.
The second book is Rwandan writer Scholastic Mukasonga’s heartbreakingly haunting French memoir, ‘Cockroaches’. Mukasonga is the only Rwandan writer to be translated into English. In this box she recounts her experience growing up & the events leading up to the Rwandan genocide. With her spare, yet haunting writing, Mukasonga lovingly resurrects the memories of all the family members she lost in the genocide, including those small, everyday moments that she experienced with her loved ones.
