{Getting into trouble.}

In which Ms. Helen Matthews Lewis insists it's alright to get into trouble, Mr. Senator John Lewis has already been in some trouble, and the Lee Bros. are having some trouble locating the lady who wrote the first soul food cookbook. Meanwhile, her ladyship, the editor, is trying to stay out of trouble and make a dent in her TBR stack. With doubtful success in either case.

Dearest Readers

The power company came by at the beginning of this week to replace the older poles on her ladyship, the editor's street. One of the poles was very, very close to her ladyship's house, so she was grateful for their diligence, but it did have one unexpected effect in that her ladyship was without power for an afternoon. It was a beautiful day for an enforced vacation, so her ladyship spent it working in her garden, and reading on her back deck. (It is terribly, terribly, hard to restrain oneself from planting peas two weeks early when the weather insists on being sunny and in the seventies.) Here's the book pile she's currently trying to make a dent in:

The TBR stack 

She's having doubtful success, since for every book she finishes, two or three more seem to appear, each as enticing as the last. She perseveres, nonetheless.

The books in the stack:

Eveningland The Hidden Life of Trees Rooted The Legend of the Albino Farm One Good Mama Bone The Barrowfields The River of Kings Sightlines Memorial Float Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook Victuals

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book

Noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.

SignalsJulian was living in a sooty apartment building next to an iron foundry in Memphis when he received a letter announcing that his great-grandfather's estate had finally been cleared up. He stood in the doorway of his peeling duplex, his hands shaking as he read the terms. Most of the property had been sold off to satisfy liens and lawyer's fees, but the large country house and six acres remained, along with $28,000. Julian was a thin man of sixty-three, balding, a typewriter repairman who worked out of his spare bedroom and kept to himself. The one time he'd seen the grand old home was when he was eight, riding past it on a gravel road with his mother, back when she could afford a car. The mansion was surrounded on three sides by rows of cracked Doric pillars, its second-floor gallery missing many balusters, its windows patched with cardboard. It had been occupied for many years by a glowering family of squatters who'd slouched on the porches and stared after his mother's black Ford as it crawled past the fence. For all he knew, they were still there.

He went inside, out of the late June heat, and sat in a duct-taped recliner to reread the terms of his good fortune. The only extra money he'd ever had was a hundred-dollar win on a scratch-off ticket. Before his mother died, he'd spent two years at a tiny local college and considered himself at least wealthy in knowledge, more so than the shopkeepers and records clerks he dealt with. Normally, he disparaged people who owned large houses, yet deep in his heart he'd stored the memory of the old mansion as the only grand thing in his family's history. It had shamed him to long for the house, and now he owned it.

Conversations with Ron Rash"One reason I wanted to do the collection was that Ron always speaks so generously and insightfully about his writing and about writing in general. I hoped the book would provide important information about his writing, but also provide inspiration for other aspiring writer"

"It's a shock. We can't believe it, really," said Mitzi Ware, events coordinator at the bookstore. "The staff is carrying on because we are in the middle of a lot of events that have been scheduled, but it's hard. We have no idea what the future will bring."

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

This book is full of thrilling mysteries and tension while shedding light on a little known tragedy from WWII.

The Alienist by Caleb Carr

I lived in NY's Hudson Valley when this came out, and know how well Carr (also a Hudson Valley resident) describes it all. I love historical fiction that mixes true and fictional characters. NY police commissioner Teddy Roosevelt sets up an unofficial team to investigate a serial killer, in an era in which such a concept is unknown.

The Alienist by Caleb Carr, ($17, Random House Trade), recommended by Rosemary at Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC. 




School’s First Day of School by Adam Rex, Christian Robinson

This is my favorite picture book of the year. I really love when authors take a well-known theme and put a spin on it! This charming story is a unique take on the back-to-school theme and just made me feel so much joy while I was reading it. A brand-new school building -- aptly named School -- has to adjust to first day jitters of his own, including lots of children who aren't exactly quiet, neat, or tidy. A few of the children don't even like School! As the children slowly get over their first day fears, the school also learns to enjoy the chaos, with a little help from a compassionate custodian. School is a fully drawn character, both silly and sentimental, that you can enjoy all year round. Amazing illustrations by Christian Robinson wrap up this beautiful package. Readers young and old will have fun reading this sweet story.

School’s First Day of School by Adam Rex, Christian Robinson (illus.) ($17.99, Roaring Brook Press), recommended by Amanda, Hooray for Books, Alexandria, VA.

Replica tells the dual stories of two girls affected by scientific revolutions in an ambiguous tale that can be read in any order.

Don't Suck, Don't Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt by Kristin Hersh

You don't need to be familiar with Chesnutt's or Hersh's work to appreciate this phenomenal book, but you will undoubtedly want to be once you've finished it. Hersh is a writer of intense and subtle beauty, and she will make you cry and feel a hundred other things with the power of her style alone. Through the tragic story of her close friend and tourmate, Chesnutt, Hersh evokes the torture of all that artistic genius encapsulates and makes that pain sing in a voice both opaque and elegant, grimy and pristine. Ultimately, this is a deeply affecting meditation on one's thrust toward 'important art' and on how music is a necessary expression of sadness and loneliness but also one of intense and inimitable beauty.

Don’t Suck, Don’t Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt by Kristin Hersh ($14.95, University of Texas Press), recommended by Donovan, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL.

Signals by Tim Gautreaux

A widely celebrated novelist gives us a generous collection of exhilarating short stories, proving that he is a master of this genre as well. Once again, "he reminds us," wrote the Miami Herald, "that great writing is a timeless art."

After the stunning historical novels The Clearing and The Missing, Tim Gautreaux now ranges freely through contemporary life with twelve new stories and eight from previous collections. Most are set in his beloved Louisiana, many hard by or on the Mississippi River, others in North Carolina and even in midwinter Minnesota. But generally it's heat, humidity, and bugs that beset his people as they wrestle with affairs of the heart, matters of faith, and the pros and cons of tight-knit communities--a remarkable cast of characters, primarily of the working class, proud and knowledgeable about the natural or mechanical world, their lives marked by a prized stereo or a magical sewing machine retrieved from a locked safe, boats and card games and casinos, grandparents and grandchildren and those in between, their experiences leading them to the ridiculous or the scarifying or the sublime; most of them striving for what's right and good, others tearing off in the opposite direction.

Christine Feehan on writing the Ghostwalker series

Christine FeehanI’ve always loved the South and have visited Florida, Kentucky, Texas and my beloved Louisiana many, many times.  I have several series that are set in the south, my most recent Dark Series novels being in Texas and of course my Ghostwalkers are currently in the Bayou near New Orleans. 

I write romance, but my Ghostwalker series could easily be categorized as romantic suspense or a paranormal thriller.   This series is one of my most researched.  The series deals with military soldiers who’ve undergone experiments to enhance psychic ability and women who have been genetically altered, so there’s a good deal of science fiction in these stories. 

I’ve always believed that it’s important to remain as close to actual science as possible when writing fiction.  When I’m writing I contact military personnel, scientists, specialists and other professionals to ensure the accuracy of what I’m writing, or to ask if something I’d like to write is feasible under certain, extraordinary circumstances.  I take some liberties, since this is fiction, but I try to be as accurate as possible where I can.

Resitricted AreasIt’s a great deal of work that goes into the research and that includes being true to the location I’ve chosen for the books.  Louisiana, specifically the New Orleans area, is unique is so many ways.  It’s rich history, landscape, architecture, mix of cultures and even language set the area apart from everywhere else in the United States, if not the world.  The people are fighters, survivors and they are loyal to each other, especially if they call each other “family”.

Power GameI’ve made many trips to New Orleans over the years and it remains one of my favorite cities on Earth.  I’ve always felt a connection to that area and to the people.  My latest trip took me back out to the bayou to research the area around the Pearl River Wildlife management area with Captain Neil Benson of Pearl River Eco Swamp Tour. Stennis is a real-life popular area for military training so I wanted my characters to have access to that in the book.  I put the family of Ghostwalkers in the swamp area, in a beautiful and secluded home.

The area is full of danger and full of beauty and the people who live there have such a fierce love for it that I knew I wanted my Ghostwalkers to live there and of course, fall in love there. 

About the book:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan is "one of the best storytellers around" (RT Book Reviews). Find out why as two lovers surrounded by greed and corruption discover there's no telling whom you can trust--or who will come out on top. . .

When members of a United Nations joint security force are taken hostage by radical terrorists in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a supersoldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better and run faster than the enemy, disappear when necessary and hunt along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that... 

A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn't want to control her or kill her. But Zeke is different. His gaze, his touch--they awaken feelings inside her that she never thought possible. He's the kind of man she could settle down with--if she can keep him alive. . .

About the author

Christine Feehan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the Carpathian series, the GhostWalker series, the Leopard series, the Sea Haven series, and the Shadow series.
