In which Mr Ron Rash finds discussing his archives "eerie," Ms. Jill McCorkle admits that she has been known to rant like her characters, Mr. John Hart saved all the cocktail napkins he used to write his story ideas on, and Ms. Jaki Shelton Green cooks a meal for a man she plans to kick to the curb.

Dearest Readers

What to read next? For avid readers, answering this ever-present question is rather like standing in the middle of the supermarket, hungry, and thinking "what should I have for dinner?" So many possibilities, each one so very enticing, how to choose?Read This

"Read this" Abbie at Lemuria Books says as she hands you a copy of The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel - the story of a young man who managed to lose himself in the forest for 27 years.

"Read this" both Helen and Rosemary at Quail Ridge Books say about Last Hope Island, a gripping story of an overlooked piece of WWII history.

"Read this!" says Niki at Parnassus Books about Elan Mastai's new novel, All Our Wrong Todays, which she calls "spectacularly weird."

Recommendations are at the heart of every bookstore's raison d'etre, and pretty much the favorite part of the job for every bookseller. Sure, being able to read anything you want is what brings most booksellers into the business. But being able to talk to other readers about what you are reading? That is just as important.

For the past several years book recommendations from Southern indie booksellers have been dutifully collected and posted at the AuthorsRoundtheSouth.com website:

http://www.authorsroundthesouth.com/read-this

At this point over 100 stores have submitted over 435 book recommendations. It is sort of a dream reading list. The  archive can be explored by category -- if you are looking for poetry or short fiction, mysteries and thrillers, or books on music or film then there is a suggested reading list waiting for you. And every book is on the list because a bookseller somewhere put their reputation on the line and the book in someone's hands and said "Read this!"

Read Independently! And shop local.


her ladyship, the editor

To much email?

If you are reading this, then the chances are you also get a second email later in the week, "The Calendar of Events at Lady Banks" -- devoted solely to listing what is happening at bookstores around the South. Last Saturday, the Calendar of Events listed no less than 27 different events at bookstores around the South. In fact, a typical week will often list over 150 events at Southern indie bookstores -- far too many to list in any one email. 

So if you would like to receive an event listing just for your state, or if you'd rather not receive the Calendar of Events at all, click on the link below. You will be able to let her ladyship, the editor, know which state event calendar you'd like to receive, or select to opt out of the Calendar altogether.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


 

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Flight PathDespite protests from the Kirkwood Neighbors' Organization and bad press in the local paper, they bulldozed the house where I lost my virginity.

It was a turn-of-the-century farmhouse about a mile from my college campus, with great blue-grey gables framed by two towering cedars at the street. In 1895, the house would have been a suburban retreat, six miles east of downtown Atlanta by streetcar. In 1997, the area had been swallowed by the city but, like most old intown neighborhoods, it retained the green isolation and slow pace of the country. In the back yard, a small bamboo stand hid the beginnings of a creek, while on all sides oaks rippled over sidewalks and asphalt. The summer I lived at 332 Murray Hill Avenue, the nights were noisy with crickets and bullfrogs and the dreamy monotone of the MARTA train.

Technically, it was Mom's house, one of a series of rentals. My mother, a high school-educated waitress, florist, potter, and party girl, moved cheerfully every two or three years during my childhood. Never far, each time just a neighborhood over, to another rental house or crumbly duplex or roach-bombed apartment in a hacked-up Victorian. My mom left my dad, my sister and me when we girls were toddlers and she'd been moving ever since. She moved whenever the lease was up; she moved to break up with boyfriends. In fact, Mom was always moving, never still. Always loading and unloading pots from her kiln, flats of flowers from her truck, or scuba gear from the basement. Mom was forever damp with a fine glow of perspiration, with her rosy cheeks, fabulous cleavage, and moist wisps of hair curling around her face.

--Hannah Palmer, Flight Path: A Search for Roots Beneath the World's Busiest Airport (Hub City Press, 2017)

The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel

The Stranger in the Woods by Michael FinkelDo you ever think about getting away from the world? Ever contemplate taking a break and relaxing out in the woods by yourself for while? Well, one guy decided to do just that…for 27 years.

The Stranger in the Woods is the true story of the hermit Christopher Knight. In 1986, 20-year-old Knight decided to completely leave society and disappear into the woods of Maine. For the next three decades, Knight lived completely by himself, surviving by pilfering off the summer cabins that surrounded the nearby lake. To the locals, he became known as the North Pond Hermit. It wasn’t until 2013 that a determined resident finally caught him stealing food from the lake’s summer camp, and the hermit and his hideout were revealed. Read more at Lemuria’s blog…

The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel ($25.95, Knopf Publishing Group), recommended by Abbie, Lemuria Books, Jackson, MS.

Last Hope Island: Britain, Occupied Europe, and the Brotherhood That Helped Turn the Tide of War by Lynne Olson

Last Hope Island Britain: Occupied Europe, and the Brotherhood That Helped Turn the Tide of War by Lynne OlsonBoth Helen and Rosemary recommend Lynne Olson's new history:

Rosemary: The contributions of smaller Allied nations (such as Norway) are often overlooked in WWII histories. In the starting days of the war, governments and partisans in exile congregated in London. Olson (Citizens of London) returns to its setting to detail how refugee communities came to England's aid (among them, Polish and Czech pilots for a decimated RAF) and England to theirs. All didn't go swimmingly, but all realized that England indeed was their Last Hope Island against Hitler.

Helen: Last Hope Island is an eye-opening account of heroic people who refused to give up as Europe fell to the Nazis. They came to Great Britain, calling it "Last Hope Island," to fight until the bitter end. Polish pilots became the most aggressive pilots in the air. When the leader of a French underground spy ring was captured, his young secretary took over. After giving his estate to the Allies to use as a military hospital, a Scottish lord led the soldiers who defused bombs. A fascinating history full of new personal stories from World War II.

Last Hope Island: Britain, Occupied Europe, and the Brotherhood That Helped Turn the Tide of War($30, Random House), recommended by Helen and Rosemary, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC.

All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai

All Our Wrong Todays by Elan MastaiThis spectacular (and spectacularly weird) debut imagines 2016 as an alternate universe full of technological advances--including time travel--that we can only dream of in our 2016. But thanks to Tom making a series of small-to-catastrophic mistakes, we’ve all gotten stuck in the wrong universe. As delightful a novel as I’ve read in ages.

All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai ($26.00, Dutton Books), recommended by Niki, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN.

 


The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa SeeLisa See is finally back with a wonderful new novel about the healing powers of tea, on the body, heart, and spirit.

In The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane (Scribner $27), explore a minority culture within China, the Akha people, and learn about the tea they grow. It tells the tale of a woman and her daughter separated after birth, and their mutual yearning to find each other again. They search for and find answers in the tea that has shaped their lives.

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See ($27.00, Scribner Book Company), recommended by Amber, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC.

White Tears by Hari Kunzru

White Tears/Hari KunzruIn a guest post on Lemuria Books' blog, writer Jim Ewing recommends White Tearsby Hari Kunzru.

"What if there's a subtle, hidden sound, a tone, or chord, a riff that can transcend time and space, communicating through music a key or gate to hidden truths? This is the essential question that leads a New York acoustic engineer named Seth on the path toward solving a mystery in Hari Kunzru's novel White Tears...It's a saga that leads to madness, blood, and shame. Readers will be left reeling, wondering how many more mournful, deadly vibrations still reverberate all around us, just beneath the surface of our world." Continue reading...

Flight Path: A Search for Roots Beneath the World’s Busiest Airport by Hannah Palmer

In the months leading up to the birth of her first child, Hannah Palmer discovers that all three of her childhood houses have been wiped out by the expansion of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Having uprooted herself from a promising career in publishing in her adopted Brooklyn, Palmer embarks on a quest to determine the fate of her lost homes--and of a community that has been erased by unchecked Southern progress.

Palmer's journey takes her from the ruins of kudzu-covered, airport-owned ghost towns to carefully preserved cemeteries wedged between the runways; into awkward confrontations with airport planners, developers, and even her own parents. Along the way, Palmer becomes an amateur detective, an urban historian, and a mother.

Lyrically chronicling the overlooked devastation and beauty along the airport's fringe communities in the tradition of John Jeremiah Sullivan and Leslie Jamison, Palmer unearths the startling narratives about race, power, and place that continue to shape American cities.

Part memoir, part urban history, Flight Path: A Search for Roots beneath the World's Busiest Airport is a riveting account of one young mother's attempt at making a home where there's little home left.
