Literary Sandwiches (for June, inspired by Jonathan Caws-Elwitt)
The Henry James: juxtaposes Old World cheeses (corrupt and alluring) with New World heirloom tomatoes. The sandwich is presented brashly open and facing abuse. It is served with its ghost-doppelganger (not shown) so as to nurture alternate American and European lives. The sandwich comes with suspicions that it is gay.
The William James: so enormous that diners may, through free will, request an abridged serving. The William James asks, do we run from an enormous sandwich because we are afraid, or are we afraid because we run? (Spoiler: we are afraid because we run.) Note that only the sandwich's material self is provided; the social self, spiritual self, and pure ego are available with our other self-service condiments.
The Alice James: for those knowing neither hope nor peace, this sandwich invites you to "abandon the pit of your stomach" in the struggle between the body of this meal and your moral power. This is a sandwich you'll write about in your diary.
