{On the slow disappearance of fireflies.}

In which Ms. Georgann Eubanks becomes a food pilgrim, Mr. Isaac Asimov writes story about a stable marriage -- between three inter-dimensional aliens, Ms. Jesmyn Ward ponders the closeness of history in the South, and Ms. Faust laments the slow disappearance of fireflies.

Her ladyship, the editor, spent the previous week in the lovely New Orleans (which, as an aside, is a difficult place to be for a vegetarian) for the annual SIBA Discovery Show -- the big book industry trade show that showcases all the forthcoming fall and winter books. This was the result:

The Book Pile!

Among the books her ladyship is most looking forward to are Wiley Cash's new novel The Last Ballad, a historical novel about the all-but-forgotten balladeer and union organizer from Gastonia, North Carolina (and the woman Pete Seeger called "one of America's greatest songwriters"); The Woman's Hour by Elaine Weiss, a gripping history of the final battle for women's right to vote, fought in a long hot summer in Tennessee; Tayari Jones' forthcoming novel An American Marriage (not due until February, alas) -- inspired by a young couple's argument the author overheard in a mall food court; and Beth Ann Fennelly's Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs, which is due out next month. It's a deceptively short book that covers quite a lot of ground -- sometimes in a couple paragraphs, sometimes in a couple pages, and sometimes in a couple sentences:

Married Love

In every book my husband's written, a character named Colin suffers a horrible death. This is because my boyfriend before I met my husband was named Colin. In addition to being named Colin, he was Scottish, and an architect. So you understand my husband's feeling of inadequacy. My husband cannot build a tall building of many stories. He can only build a story, and then push Colin out of it.

The Last Ballad The Woman's Hour An American Marriage Heating and Cooling

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book

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

Sing, Unburied, SingJojo

I like to think I know what death is. I like to think that it's something I could look at straight. When Pop tell me he need my help and I see that black knife slid into the belt of his pants, I follow Pop out the house, try to keep my back straight, my shoulders even as a hanger; that's how Pop walks. I try to look like this is normal and boring so Pop will think I've earned these thirteen years, so Pop will know I'm ready to pull what needs to be pulled, separate innards from muscle, organs from cavities. I want Pop to know I can get bloody. Today's my birthday.

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers

The Western Star by Craig JohnsonMy weak spots are trains, westerns and mysteries, so I was compelled to pick up the new Longmire mystery by Craig Johnson. I flipped through the first few pages and tried to feign disinterest--as a brooding Western lawman would do--but I failed spectacularly and found myself riding alongside Sheriff Walt Longmire, back to his early days as a Wyoming deputy. His efforts to stay alive then serve as the backdrop for his current challenge to confront his darkest enemy. The gun- and book-toting Longmire, and the cast of unique characters on the Western Star kept me guessing as I rode the rails with them for miles through the Wyoming wilderness.

The Western Star by Craig Johnson ($28.00*, Viking), recommended by Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC.


The world is a beautiful place, don't you think? Not because it is, but because I see it that way.

The title is the first thing I noticed about this book, but it definitely wasn't what kept me reading it--the writing itself took care of that.

This entire novel is ONE sentence. This is a book meant to be devoured in one sitting--you may not stop to catch your breath. Hrabal is a master and he does something really special here.  

Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age By Bohumil Hrabal ($14, NYRB Classics) Recommended by O.B. at Scuppernong Books Greensboro NC


This remarkable collection of maps, photographs, engravings and paintings from the early ages to modern day provides a stunning new look at the world as defined by our struggles and alliances with the monsters and supernatural creatures that have defined our existence

Learn how a mechanical man helped write America's Declaration of Independence. Track the course of the Living Dead virus from Africa to Europe and on to the New World.

Alternate Histories of the World by Matthew Buchholz (Perigee Trade) Recommended by Will at Fountain Bookstore Richmond VA

RabbitShe trained to be a medical assistant, but no one would hire her because she was a convicted felon. That's when her welfare caseworker suggested she give comedy a try. At least no one would be checking her criminal record. Encouraged by friends who told her she was funny, Williams gave it a shot; it wound up changing her life.

Jesmyn Ward at the National Book Festival

Jesmyn Ward

"I think in the South most people are hyper-aware of how close history feels"

The Okra Pick of the Week

Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn WardA searing and profound Southern odyssey by National Book Award–winner Jesmyn Ward.

In Jesmyn Ward's first novel since her National Book Award–winning Salvage the Bones, this singular American writer brings the archetypal road novel into rural twenty-first-century America. Drawing on Morrison and Faulkner, The Odyssey and the Old Testament, Ward gives us an epochal story, a journey through Mississippi's past and present that is both an intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle. Ward is a major American writer, multiply awarded and universally lauded, and in Sing, Unburied, Sing she is at the height of her powers.

Jojo and his toddler sister, Kayla, live with their grandparents, Mam and Pop, and the occasional presence of their drug-addicted mother, Leonie, on a farm on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Leonie is simultaneously tormented and comforted by visions of her dead brother, which only come to her when she's high; Mam is dying of cancer; and quiet, steady Pop tries to run the household and teach Jojo how to be a man. When the white father of Leonie's children is released from prison, she packs her kids and a friend into her car and sets out across the state for Parchman farm, the Mississippi State Penitentiary, on a journey rife with danger and promise.

Sing, Unburied, Sing grapples with the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power, and limitations, of the bonds of family. Rich with Ward's distinctive, musical language, Sing, Unburied, Sing is a majestic new work and an essential contribution to American literature.
