{On the dangers of playing football in the front yard.}

In which Ms. Patti Callahan Henry learns the difference between how we want things to be and how things really are, Ms. Kelly Justice discovers a once-in-a-decade, and perhaps once-in-a-life-time book, Mr. Taylor Kitchings gets in trouble for playing football in the front yard, and her ladyship, the editor, goes looking for the books she remembers having as a child.

Dearest Readers,

Earlier this year her ladyship, the editor related how she had inherited her Grandmother's everyday dishes, and how this fortunate happenstance sent her on a journey through the antique and vintage shops and sites looking to replace the dishes that had been broken or lost from the set.

The problem with trolling antiquing sites and vintage shops, online or in the real world, is that one sees all this other stuff. Pretty stuff. Weird stuff. Stuff that looks exactly like the stuff one had as a child.

Which is the only explanation for why her ladyship, the editor, is now the proud owner of this:

Fanny Farmer egg cup

It is an egg cup, exactly of the type that her ladyship's mother used to serve a soft-boiled egg for breakfast. When its picture popped up on the computer, her ladyship's first thought was "I remember that!" and being possessed of little to no impulse control, she clicked to purchase it without thought.

Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy TalesThis is not the first time her ladyship has been driven to recreate a memory from when she was a little girl. Many of the children's books on her shelves are ones she remembered reading (or at least looking at, if they were illustrated) when she was a little girl. Which is why she went to great lengths to find a specific edition of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales. And a particular copy of Andrew Lang's The Blue Fairy Book. Why she never could abide the modernized Nancy Drew books, and why was thrilled beyond reason when the works of Tove Jansson came back into print. 

Some books never hold up to being re-read. But the books we loved as children stay eternal in our hearts.

Moomins!

The little egg cup, it turns out, does have a story. It was the same cup her ladyship's mother had when she was a child. It was made by a candy company called "Fanny Farmer" -- named after the cookbook author, but not otherwise affiliated. In fact, the Fanny Farmer Candy Company was started by a Canadian who was trading on the wholesome nature of the name. He opened his shop in 1919, in Rochester, New York. Her ladyship's mother grew up in Rochester, which no doubt explains the presence of the egg cup at the family breakfast table.

Her mother still has it. Indeed, still uses it. But she has promised that if the time ever comes when she gives up eating soft boiled eggs, she'll send the cup down to her ladyship, where it can be one of a pair.

Read independently. And shop local.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Go Set a WatchmanAutumn comes late in Alabama. On Halloween, even, one may hide porch chairs unencumbered by one's heavy  coat. Twilights are long, but darkness comes suddenly; the sky turns from dull orange to blue-black before one can take five steps, and with the light goes the last ray of the day's heat, leaving living room weather.

Autumn was her happiest season. There was an expectancy about its sounds and shapes: the distant thunk pomp of leather and young bodies on the practice field near her house made her think of bands and cold Coca-Colas, parched peanuts and the sight of people's breath in the air. There was even something to look forward to when school started--renewals of old feuds and friendships, weeks of learning again what one half forgot in the long summer. Fall was hot-supper time with everything to eat one missed in the morning when too sleepy to enjoy it. Her world was at its best when her time came to leave it.

--Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman (Harper, 2015) 9780062409850

Book & Author Gossip

Long Upon the LandA new reader on Margaret Maron's new mystery

“Long Upon the Land” is not a bad place to dip into the Knott series, as the judge is trying to solve a family mystery as well as help her husband, Sheriff Dwight Bryant, solve a murder that occurred on her father Kezzie’s land. The family mystery – who is the Leslie engraved on a Zippo lighter her late mother, Sue, always carried? – allows for flashbacks. In these, set during and right after World War II, Sue Stephenson meets and marries Kezzie Knott, a local bootlegger. The flashbacks are an excellent way to fill in more of the Knott family’s backstory without being repetitious for those who have been reading Maron all along. 9780448060057

Q&A with Taylor Kitchings

Yard WarWhen I was 8, four years younger than my protagonist Trip, our maid, Willie Jane, brought her son with her a couple of times and we got to know each other and threw the football a couple of times in the front yard. I clearly remember the night I was told the neighbors had called and complained and I could not play football with my friend anymore. My initial reaction was more confusion than anger because I honestly did not understand what the problem was. I guess that memory needed a few decades to percolate before it was ready to become a novel. 

Truth and lies in love stories

The Idea of LoveIn Patti Callahan Henry’s new novel, a character says: “I saw how I wanted it to be, instead of how it really was.” In “The Idea of Love,” characters see things how they want and present themselves how they want to be seen. The truth lies somewhere in between. 

The demise of the SC Book Festival diminishes the midlands

The demise of the S.C. Book Festival is a very sad development for the Midlands. While it offered repeated visits with beloved authors of the Carolinas (Ron Rash, Pat Conroy), the festival also facilitated something that will be much harder to come by in its absence: making the acquaintance of first-time, up-and-coming authors.

Lady Banks {Book} Trailer Park

Canterbury Sisters

The Canterbury SistersIn the vein of Jojo Moyes and Cheryl Strayed's "Wild," a warm and touching novel about a woman who embarks on a pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral after losing her mother, sharing life lessons--in the best Chaucer tradition--with eight other women along the way. 

Che Milan's life is falling apart. Not only has her longtime lover abruptly dumped her, but her eccentric, demanding mother has recently died. When an urn of ashes arrives, along with a note reminding Che of a half-forgotten promise to take her mother to Canterbury, Che finds herself reluctantly undertaking a pilgrimage. 

Within days she joins a group of women who are walking the sixty miles from London to the shrine of Becket in Canterbury Cathedral, reputed to be the site of miracles. In the best Chaucer tradition, the women swap stories as they walk, each vying to see who can best describe true love. Che, who is a perfectionist and workaholic, loses her cell phone at the first stop and is forced to slow down and really notice the world around her, perhaps for the first time in years. 

Through her adventures along the trail, Che finds herself opening up to new possibilities in life and discovers that the miracles of Canterbury can take surprising forms.

Okra Picks

From the Okra Picks

Go Set a WatchmanAn historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To Kill a Mockingbird.

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch Scout struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee's enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

HeritageHeritage by Sean Brock 

Heritage is not just a cookbook: it is a cultural touchstone.  A cookbook of this kind comes along maybe once in a decade.  Brock has not only managed to deliver delicious recipes beautifully presented, he has also provided us with a crystal clear snapshot of a chef honoring his culinary roots and using them to create a whole new and constantly evolving cuisine that is uniquely his, yet showcases his respect for the influences and input of many.  It is one of the best-written, gorgeous books I have ever owned in any category and I salute his achievement. --Kelly Justice, Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA 

Fortune Smiles: StoriesFortune Smiles: Stories by Adam Johnson (8/18/15)

Like Adam Johnson's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Orphan Master's Son, his new book of short stories is not for the faint of heart. These long stories, closer to novellas, are outrageous, absurd, achingly sad, and irrationally funny. Protagonists include a cancer survivor, a pedophile, a former Nazi prison warden, two North Korean defectors, an AWOL UPS driver, and even “the biggest lunkhead ever to win a Pulitzer Prize.” How he makes you love them all is the greatest trick of a master writer. -- Sarah Goddin, Quail Ridge Books & Music, Raleigh, NC
