{The greatest possible thing a novel can do.}

In which her ladyship, the editor, explains why she is unable to answer her door, Ms. Lalita Tademy explains the greatest possible thing a novel can do, and Ms. Ann Patchett explains (quite politely) to the editor of the New York Times that she has not, in fact, married her dog, being already married to her husband.

November 9, 2014

Well, her ladyship, the editor, has officially welcomed the change of seasons by bringing some of her more sensitive plants indoors. She's raked over her garden beds, planted her lettuce, spinach, garlic and kale, picked and pickled the last of her peppers, and basically put everything to bed in anticipation of the likely frosts. Now, there is little to do but curl up in her chair, under her "reading blanket," with a pot of hot coffee and half a dozen books on the side table, a cat in her lap and an old dog asleep on her feet. (This, by the way, is why her ladyship is never available to answer the door when people come calling.)

So what books are stacked by her ladyship's chair?

Jerry Lee Lewis by Rick Bragg 
The Wilds by Julia Elliot 
Letters from Russia by Astolphe de Custine 
On Immunity by Eula Bliss 
Infinitesimal by Amir Alexander 

Citizens CreekAnd what book is laying open next to her coffee cup right now?

Citizens Creek by Lalita Tademy 

This is a fascinating novel about a slice of American history that has often been overlooked. Her ladyship, the editor, is looking forward to the live discussion with Lalita Tademy on Facebook next week.

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Jerry Lee LewisDown among the sheltering palms
Oh, honey, wait for me.

He was still a boy then. One day, when he was nine or ten, he stood on the levee beside his mother and father as one more party boat pushed against the current, well-dressed people laughing on deck. Safe in the middle of the Black River, they raised their glasses in a mocking toast to the family ashore. “They tipped their mint juleps at us, tipped ’em up,” he says, and smiles the faintest bit to prove how little it matters to him after so much time. But it mattered to the man and woman beside him.

His daddy was indestructible then, gaunt, six foot four, with big, powerful hands that could squeeze weaker men to their knees, and a face that seemed drawn only in straight lines, like Dick Tracy in the funny papers. As the drunken revelers lifted their glasses of bourbon high in the air, Elmo Kidd Lewis pulled the boy to his hip. “ ‘Don’t worry, son,’ Daddy told me. ‘That’ll be you on there someday. That’ll be you.’ ”

--Rick Bragg, Jerry Lee Lewis, His Own Story (Harpercollins, 2014) 9780062078223

Book & Author Gossip

Book Brahmin: A Q&A with Lalita Tademy

Jerry Lee LewisBook that changed your life: This is hardly an original choice, but Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird absolutely blew my mind when I was in high school in California. Our African-American family integrated into a white suburb there in the 1950s, and the town was extremely hostile to our presence. Atticus Finch gave me hope that not everyone in the country was narrow-minded and bent on our destruction. It is easy to go back now and criticize the sentimentality of the novel, but I viewed the world in a different way after reading this book. Isn't that the greatest possible thing a novel can do?

Ann Patchett explains to the New York Times that she is not married to her dog

To the Editor:

I was grateful to see my book “This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage” mentioned in Paperback Row (Oct. 19). When highlighting a few of the essays in the collection, the review mentions topics ranging from “her stabilizing second marriage to her beloved dog” without benefit of comma, thus giving the impression that Sparky and I are hitched. While my love for my dog is deep, he married a dog named Maggie at Parnassus Books last summer as part of a successful fund-raiser for the Nashville Humane Association. I am married to Karl VanDevender. We are all very happy in our respective unions.Jerry Lee Lewis

Jerry Lee Lewis

His Own Story is more like a Bragg-Lewis duet with Bragg dominating the mike and both men improvising the lyrics. But if the tale is partly truth and partly fiction, at least it’s an in-depth, unvarnished and wildly entertaining tale, starting with Lewis’ hardscrabble childhood in Ferriday, La., where he jumped off moving trains, sneaked into black nightclubs, attacked a teacher (the source of his Killer nickname), and generally raised holy hell until his papa mortgaged the farm to buy him a piano.

Pearl S. Buck papers come to West Virginia University Libraries

The Good EarthDecades ago, on the southern end of Pocahontas County in the limestone valley known as “Little Levels,” a young girl sat on a bench reading Charles Dickens and sampling grapes from the vine-covered portico of her family home. She was inspired by the panorama of the Appalachian Mountains and now the manuscripts that she penned as an adult have found a new home, waiting to inspire a new generation.  West Virginia University, West Virginia Wesleyan College and the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Foundation today (Oct. 30) announced that the three institutions would form a partnership to preserve and disseminate the legacy of Pearl S. Buck. As part of that agreement, a priceless collection of literary manuscripts by Buck will be coming to the WVU Libraries.

Daniel Woodrell, Jesamyn Ward Heartland Award Winners

The Maid's VersionWoodrell always had books lying around but was influenced mainly by the stories of the people who floated in and out of his life, he said. "The Maid's Version" was inspired in part by a real dance hall explosion. "I've heard about it all my life, ever since I was a little kid," Woodrell told the audience gathered Saturday at the Harold Washington Library Center. "I only live two blocks from the cemetery that has the mass grave of the unidentified dead. I didn't understand the controversies about it until I was much older and somebody thought I reached an age old enough to talk about it. "It's that old saying, 'The only important things in life are those you remember.' Those sort of things are unpredictable, but they are in there, in your life, and I often use them."

STARS Authors

STARSWhat are "STARS" authors? These are authors listing in the Southern Traveling Authors Registration Service--a directory of authors who live in, or are traveling in the South and are interested in meeting with book clubs, civic groups, classrooms, and readers of all kinds. The STARS directory is brought to you by Southern Indie Booksellers, who want to connect readers with their favorite writers.

Rebekah L. Pierce

Kaye HinckleyRebekah L. Pierce is an avid playwright and author with her works focusing on contemporary women and their search for purpose and identity. She received her MA in English with a concentration in Literature from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002, which is where she wrote her first play, The Myth. In 2006, Mrs. Pierce placed as an alternate in the 2006 Virginia Commission of the Arts Playwriting Fellowship for her works, Perfect and The Myth, which were produced and staged in local theaters in Richmond, VA in 2004 & 2005. In 2007, she wrote and produced her third play, Bell Blu, the story of a young woman determined to fight poverty, marital rape, and domestic violence for the chance to live her own life. Pierce's first novel is Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders, a blend of history and fiction. The plot is set during a very pivotal time in American history: 30 days before the infamous Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929. It features Sy Sanford, a Great War veteran, and one of the few African American male protagonists in the mystery/suspense genre.

Murder on Second StreetMurder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders

It's 1929 and a local Negro neighborhood called Jackson Ward in Richmond, Virginia is booming. In fact, it's called "The Black Wall Street of America" by economists of the day. Things are booming financially and socially for the Negro community, but then a series of what appears to be random murders of poor working class Negro women begins to happen and everyone is on edge, especially the Negro business owners. The Ward is a very tight community – strangers cannot move freely about in this segregated town. They hire haunted World War I veteran and alcoholic Sy Sanford to catch the cold-blooded murderer, but murder is not the only thing threatening to destroy "The Black Wall Street of America." The real Wall Street is about to come tumbling down and plunge Jackson Ward and its infamous 2nd Street into a debilitative financial and social state it may never recover from.

Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story
by Rick Bragg

Jerry Lee LewisFor nearly sixty years, Jerry Lee Lewis has been a monumental figure in American life. The wildest and most dangerous of the early rock and rollers, he electrified the world with hit records such as "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Great Balls of Fire," and "Breathless." His music was raucous, exuberant, slyly sexual; his wailing vocals were grounded by the locomotive force of his pumping piano. But his persona and performing style were what changed the world: whipping his long hair back, he would pound the keyboard like a coal-fired steam engine, then kick back the bench, climb atop the piano, and work the audience like the Pentecostal preacher he almost became. Poised to steal the crown from Elvis Presley, he seemed unstoppable--until news of his marriage to his thirteen-year-old cousin broke during his first British tour, nearly ending his career.

Now, for the first time, Lewis's story is told in full, as he shared it over two years with Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Rick Bragg. In a narrative rich with atmosphere and anecdote, we watch Jerry Lee emerge from the fields and levees of Depression-era Louisiana, blazing a path across Bible colleges and nightclubs en route to international fame. He shared bills with Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry, toured Australia with Buddy Holly and Paul Anka, and went Cadillac for Cadillac with Elvis on the streets of Memphis--even as both of them struggled with the conflict between their faith and their music. After a decade in the wilderness, he returned as the biggest star in country music, but his victory lap became a marathon of excess, a time of guns and pills and Calvert Extra. He crashed Rolls-Royces and Lincolns, including one he drove into the gates of Graceland; suffered the deaths of wives and loved ones; and nearly met his maker twice himself. Yet after six marriages, a long spell without a recording contract, and a bruising battle with the IRS, he overcame a crippling addiction, remarried, and scored his biggest hit records since the 1970s. Today, as he approaches his eightieth year, he continues to electrify audiences around the world.

The story of Jerry Lee Lewis has inspired songs and articles, books and films, but in these pages Rick Bragg restores a human complexity missing from other accounts. The result is a story of fire and faith and resilience, informed by Rick Bragg's deep understanding of the American spirit, and rich with Jerry Lee's own unforgettable voice.

Recommended Reading from Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, North Carolina

The WildsFrom Tony: The Wilds: Stories by Julia Elliott (Tin House, $15.95). These modern Southern Gothic stories are dark, funny, and wildly inventive. Elliott's imagery immerses you in the biology of her characters, the pure viscera of her words. Whatever she describes, be it a liquored up father teaching his boys how to gut the robins they've shot with their BB gun, or a woman imagining all the organisms teeming in the mouth of her potential lover, her prose leaves behind a distinctive sheen that may well give you the urge to wash your hands. Resist that urge!

 

Not That Kind of GirlFrom Emily Catherine: Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's “Learned” by Lena Dunham (Random House $28, currently discounted as a NYTimes bestseller). Upon finding success as a writer, director, and actress, Dunham now offers an unedited look at her life through a series of personal essays, some humorous and others quite painful, in hopes that her stories will keep readers from repeating her mistakes. With brutal honesty, she gives detailed accounts of her hardships in love and work, without shame or apology. Her ability to share without excuse shows the strength that makes her such a relatable artist and celebrity.
