A very special entry in the Classics and Coffee Club for Septmber 29th, which apparently is International Coffee Day. We’ve got the whole process on display here, from the manual grind to the pour-over rig and, what’s that in the corner? Stefan Zweig’s Chess Story?

In The Impossible Exile, his book about Zweig, George Prochnik tells us that Zweig himself frequented Vienna’s Café Imperial. Here it is circa 1920 (before it and the hotel it was located in were requisitioned by Nazis as a place to roll out the red carpet for Hitler).

As always: If you have a photo of an NYRB Classic posed with a cup of coffee or tea, send it to this address and we’ll add it to the Classics and Coffee Club series. And let us know where you bought or borrowed the book from—we’d be glad to shout out places that stock NYRB Classics.

Faulkner named his “apocryphal county,” as he called it, after an actual river, the Yoknapatawpha, which was the Chickasaw name for the river that is now called the Yocona, a corruption of Yoknapatawpha. A further…
