Vol. 2a; The Seven Aromas of the World. An annotated translation of the Catalan novel, Les set aromes del mon by Alfred Bosch. The notes are made up of unusual or specific vocabulary used in the translation; of notes on historical characters, places and events mentioned in the novel. The story narrates the quest by a distraught Felix for the best coffee seed. In order to ascertain his choice he educates his sense of smell; starting in Soho, the quest takes him to Istanbul, Arabia, Abyssinia, Black Africa, Paris and Pernambuco. Having lived through the seven aromas of the world, and his tree having successfully given berries producing the best beans, he can now quieten down, reminisce and redefine himself, and, finally, live or die happily.
