I contributed to PAPER/PLATES once again, this time with assorted pickles inspired by Drew Magary’s “The Postmortal.” Magary’s novel attempts to answer the question “What if you could live forever?” by charting a course of likely outcomes if a cure for aging is ever found.
In Magary’s world of an ever-growing, never-dying population, retirement is no longer an option, lifelong marriages become rare and the earth’s resources are depleted at alarming rates. It’s an interesting and frightening read.
What better recipe to sum up the spirit of eternal youth than pickles? Once “cured,” these tasty pickles can last seemingly forever. (But no need to worry about upsetting the delicate ecosystem of your fridge due to overcrowding - these pickles are so tasty they’ll be eaten up fast.)
