The Korean edition of the Existentialist Cafe is now out from Theory and Praxis Publishing Co., and check out this brilliant cover. Among the cocktail’s ingredients are Godzilla, Charlie Chaplin, and Keanu Reeves – and yes they’re all in the book!   (I have no link for it yet, but will update if/when I get more information.)

“Over the centuries, this interpretation and reinterpretation creates a long chain connecting a writer to all future readers- who frequently read each other as well as the original. Virginia Woolf had a beautiful vision of generations interlinked in this way: of how "minds are threaded together- how any live mind is of the very same stuff as Plato's & Euripides... It is this common mind that binds the whole world together; & all the world is mind." This capacity for living on through readers' inner worlds over long periods of history is what makes a book like the 'Essays' a true classic. As it is reborn differently in each mind, it also brings those minds together.”
Sarah Bakewell, How to Live: A Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at An Answer

“Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom’,”
Sarah Bakewell, At the Existentialist Café: Freedom, Being, and Apricot Cocktails

“Seneca put it, life does not pause to remind you that it is running out.”
Sarah Bakewell, How to Live: A Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer
