{Everything that we do is to make this a better place to live.}

In which her ladyship, the editor, telephones her mother, Mr. Jonathan Odell begins a story in the middle, Ms. Kimberly Daws explains what an independent bookstore is for, and folks remember the day when the mighty Mississippi River flowed backward.

Dearest Readers,

Birds of a Lesser ParadiseHer ladyship, the editor, is also a dutiful daughter. She makes a point to phone her parents one a week.  If she reaches her father, they talk tech--computers and software applications and digital cameras and the apps they have installed on their phones. If she gets her mother, then her ladyship talks about gardening and books. Last week it was her mother who answered the phone, and the first thing she said was "I've found a great short story collection I think you would like -- it's called Birds of a Lesser Paradise by Megan Mayhew Bergman." 

"Oh!" her ladyship responded, "I read that a couple years ago, I loved it!" And they both went on went on to talk about why each liked it, other books it reminded them of, what else they had recently been reading.

After she hung up the phone, it struck her ladyship how often she and her mother had this same kind of conversation. Her mother frequently recommends books to her ladyship, which her daughter reads, and her ladyship is not circumspect in recommending books to her mother. They know each other's tastes, can tell if the other will like a book. All avid readers have people in their lives like that.

But how many people do we know whose reading tastes are so sympatico with our own that we find we've read and loved the same books, quite independently of each other? Here is a list of some books that either her ladyship's mother recommended to her, only to discover she's already read them, or that her ladyship herself had recommended to her mother, only to discover the same:

Birds of a Lesser Paradise by Megan Mayhew Bergman
Moonflower Vine by Jetta Carlton
Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher by Timothy Egan
Wandering Falcon by Jamil Ahmad
Dust Tracks on a Road by Zora Neale Hurston
Black Lamb and Gray Falcon by Rebecca West
Rising from the Plains by John McPhee
A Schoolteacher in Old Alaska by Jane Jacobs
Snow by Orhan Pamuk
Empire Falls by Richard Russo
Dear Theo by Irving Stone
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Ship Fever by Andrea Barrett

If there is such a thing as a reading soul-mate, this is surely a sign of it.

Read Independently! And shop local.


her ladyship, the editor


Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

ValiantThe city lay against the far horizon, dark as a lump of coal in the morning light.

I wanted nothing more than to turn around, right there in the middle of the road, with frost-twisted fields stretching away in every direction. If I had my way, I would have left Father and the merchant caravan taking us to Reggen.

I would have walked the full month back to Danavir. I’d go back to Mama’s grave and sit beside it. I’d tell her that Father had found a city without a tailors’ guild and that he could sew any way he wished—and that I’d never sew for him again. And then I’d sing to her: silly ditties or the lullabies she’d taught me.

It was only right. She’d sung me to sleep as a child.

--Sarah McGuire, Valiant

Book & Author Gossip

The Summer's EndThe Mother-Daughter bond behind The Summer's End

Gretta is a world class kite surfer and she thought it a good idea for me to write a kite surfing character as it is such a popular sport on the islands.  She was my consultant for all things surfing and kite surfing in the novel, helping me get that true, personal viewpoint.  She also experienced the “shark/dolphin rescue” scene in The Summer Girls.  Her descriptions and her love of the sea helped me to create that important aspect of Carson. 

William Price Fox

Off the Beaten Path South Carolina"Some Low Country 19th-century historian is credited with the phrase, 'A chilin is better discussed than described," Mr. Fox wrote in the title piece of his 1983 collection of stories and essays, "Chitlin Strut and Other Madrigals." "Anatomically, they are the intestines of a hog and normally are used as sausage casings and ground up into lunch meats and hot dogs. But for a fired chitlin you must, as the saying goes, 'go whole hog.'" 

 

Owning a bookstore means you always get to tell people what to read

Charlotte's WebWhen Karen Hayes and I opened Parnassus Books in Nashville in November 2011, I hadn’t really considered what an enormous boon it would be to my lifelong preoccupation with forcing books on people. There were so many logistics to deal with — finding a space to rent that had good parking, finding employees, finding shelves — that there wasn’t a minute to think about the fun part: recommending books. After all, I’ve been telling people what to read since I was able to recognize words on paper. I was the kid extolling the virtues of  Charlotte’s Web in the school cafeteria. “Fern saves the runt from being killed,” I told my friends. “And so her father lets her keep him.” 

Beginning in the Middle (Jonathan Odell's rules for writers)

Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks LeagueStory comes first, writing second. It’s easier to learn to write if you first have a story you are excited to tell, than trying to learn the techniques with no place to hang them. Story provides the drive and context to learn the techniques. And it’s a lot easier to learn the “how to” if you first know the “why.” 

Country Bookshop is a must read

"We go into our schools and hold events, and everything that we do is to make this a better place to live. And I think that is what our customers respond to. It's one of the things we value."

Lee Brothers sign TV show deal

Lee Bros. Charleston KitchenCookbook authors Matt and Ted Lee, better known as the Lee Bros., have had numerous cameos on shows like No ReservationsThrowdown with Bobby Flay, and, if IMBD is correct, a guest spot on Big Morning Buzz Live with Nick Lachey.Now they're taking the spotlight for themselves with the announcement of a new TV show, Southern Uncovered. 

Shaking the family tree

"Witnesses say the ground rocked, rolled in waves, uprooting great trees, geysers of sand erupted and even the mighty Mississippi River flowed backward. The quakes ranged far and wide and are considered the largest series of quakes in U.S. history. They were of a magnitude so great church bells in eastern cities rang and the quakes continued for more than two months. New Madrid, being the only settlement in 1811-12, gave its name to the disaster and to this day the area is known as the New Madrid Fault and Seismic Zone,"

A Sweeping Southern Saga

The Bone TreeWhen an author announces he is writing a trilogy of books just so it can contain his full story, one's first thought is it had better be a good tale to stretch over that length. Ken Follett pulled it off with his last set of novels, and Greg Iles got off to a good start with his novel Natchez Burning. Now he has come forth with the second novel, The Bone Tree, and it matches, or even outdoes, the first story in excitement and drama.

Lady Banks {Book} Trailer Park

True and Constant Friends

True and Constant FriendsKelley Paul, wife of Senator Rand Paul, celebrates lifelong friendships in a beautifully illustrated book about the female bond.

Feeling blessed to be one of seven friends who met and grew close in college-and looking forward to their celebration of a milestone birthday together-Kelley Paul wanted to know more about the women who were their first sources of love and inspiration, as her own grandmother and mother have been to her.

So she asked each friend to tell her the story of a woman who influenced and guided her, who fostered her sense of joy, independence and courage. As you read each one, you'll discover, as Kelley did, that they're the stories of women everywhere, for they are personal yet universal, ordinary yet extraordinary.

This lovely book also features works of art by the women of HomeFront Family Preservation Center and wise words of female authors and poets.

DollbabyWhen Ibby Bell's father dies in the summer of 1964, her mother Vidrine deposits the 11-year-old with her eccentric grandmother Fannie Bell, whom she didn’t know existed. Fannie, who lives in a decrepit Victorian mansion in Uptown New Orleans, tends to wind up in the local asylum every now and then. Her black cook, Queenie, who runs the household, and Queenie’s outspoken daughter, Dollbaby, take young Ibby under their wing and initiate her into the ways of the South—both its grand traditions as well as its darkest secrets. As Ibby uncovers the ghosts of her family's past, she learns that family can be found in places you least expect it. Uplifting and funny, poignant and full of verve, Dollbaby is a novel of Southern eccentricity, secrets and charm. Fans of Sue Monk Kidd, Pat Conroy and Harper Lee won’t want to miss this one!

“Every now and then, there’s a book you tell everyone to read, because it is that good. Dollbaby by Laura Lane McNeal is that book.”The Herald Sun (North Carolina)

From the Okra Picks

Valiant
by Sarah McGuire

ValiantA debut fairy tale reimagining featuring a strong female character and a daring quest just right for fans of Shannon Hale, Jessica Day George, and Gail Carson Levine.

Saville hates sewing. How can she not when her father, the Tailor, loves his bolts of velvet and silk far more than he's ever loved her? Yet, when he is struck ill shortly after they arrive in the city of Reggen, Saville must don boy's clothes in the hopes of gaining a commission from the king to keep them fed.

The kingdom is soon on edge when stories spread of an army of giants led by a man who cannot be killed. But giants are just stories, and no man is immortal.

And then the giants do come to the city gates, two larger-than-life scouts whom Saville cunningly tricks into leaving. The Tailor of Reggen is the hero of the kingdom, the king promises his sister's hand in marriage, and by the time Saville reaches the palace doors, it is widely known that the Tailor single-handedly killed the giants.

When her secret--that she's a girl--is quickly discovered by Lord Galen Verras, the king's cousin, Saville's swept into the twists and turns of court politics. The deathless man is very real, and he will use his giant army to ensure he is given the throne freely or by force.

Now, only a tailor girl with courage and cunning can see beyond the tales to discover the truth and save the kingdom again.

Valiant is a rich reimaging of "The Brave Little Tailor," artfully crafting a story of understanding, identity, and fighting to protect those you love most.

Mother's Day suggestions from Parnassus Books

Invention of WngsThe Invention of Wings By Sue Monk Kidd

This will be a great gift for moms who love fiction based on a true story. It is written from the point of view of two women raised in the early 19th century Charleston. One is the daughter of a prominent slave-holding family and the other a slave. Both refuse to accept their given positions in not just Southern society, but American society for that time period. – Karen Hayes 


Room By Emma Donoghue

RoomIt’s not hyperbolic to say that this book changed my entire notion of motherhood. The horror is being imprisoned in a single cramped room for seven years is transcended by a mother’s resilience, ingenuity, and love. Even freedom in the outside world may not be preferable if it means separation from your mother when you’re a 5-year-old boy. – Mary Grey James 

 

The Valley of Amazement By Amy Tan

Valley of AmazementA look at three generations of women in a Chinese-American family inspired by Amy Tan’s own discovery about her grandmother. Tan’s writing is beautiful and the story is mesmerizing. – Catherine Bock 9780062107329

 

 

Listen to Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now Edited by Ann Imig

Listen to Your MotherThis is a greatest hits collection of essays from the popular live reading series of the same name, featuring essays by authors including Jennifer Weiner and Jenny Lawson.

Mommy Man: How I Went from Mild-Mannered Geek to Gay Superdad By Jerry Mahoney

Mommy ManLook past the goofy cover to what’s inside — trust me. Not every kind of parent gets a holiday, but every parent can enjoy this heartwarming story about making a family. This candid memoir of two guys’ quest to become parents is full of funny observations and sharp writing. – Mary Laura Philpott 9781589799226

 

The Truth About Forever By Sarah Dessen

The Truth About ForeverSarah Dessen is one of my dearest and most favorite authors. Her writing is poignant, vivid, and full of startling clarity about family, tragedy, and redemption. This novel in particular examines how hard mother-daughter relationships can be but also how in the end they are what saves us. And if you love this one — her latest novel Saint Anything is just as incredible. – Grace Wright 

 

Experiments with Truth: Gandhi and Images of Nonviolence By Josef HelfensteinJoseph NewlandVinay Lal

Experiments with TruthThis month, in celebration of my inspiring and amazing mother, Susan Hulme, I have borrowed her words: “Having read Ghandi’s autobiography while traveling with my daughter in India, this book brings it all back. This book shares not only the inspiring words of Ghandi and his history, but shows the effect his life and teachings have had on artists everywhere.” A beautiful statement! – Grace Wright 

 

Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town By Jon Krakauer

MissoulaKrakauer examines the all too common problem of rape on college campuses, methodically obliterating the prolific rape myths that have maligned victims and rape trials for decades, by citing endless evidence and heartbreaking victim experiences. This is an emotionally draining book to read — I felt white hot rage while reading it — but it is an inexcusable problem that must be fixed. I’m recommending it to everyone: mothers, yes, and daughters, but also sons and fathers. – Ashton Hickey 

My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales By Kate BernheimerKate BernheimerGregory Maguire

My Mother She Killed MeThanks to the wicked minds of Kate Bernheimer and a cast of amazing authors, the classic fairy tales from your childhood can now assume their full screwed-up potential in all their tragic glory. Give this one to your evil stepmother. – Lindsay Lynch

You know his name from his hits: High Fidelity, Fever Pitch, About a Boy, etc. This book gives us Sophie and her journey from country girl to TV starlet, plus a great cast of funny, inappropriate characters. Great laughs, and also very clever. If your mom was the first funny girl in your life, she’ll love it. – Bill Long-Innes 

 

The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House By Kate Andersen Brower

The ResidenceBrower gives first-hand accounts from long-time White House staffers to tell what it is like to be in service to America’s first families from the Kennedy administration on. This book will delight lovers of Downton Abbey, history buffs, and gossips. – Miram Mimms 

 

 

Russka: The Novel of Russia By Edward Rutherfurd

RusskaMy Mom loves the historical novels of Edward Rutherfurd. When I asked her which was her favorite she had a tough time deciding but settled on Russka. She said she learned the most from this sweeping epic novel. Rutherfurd’s narrative follows several families and illustrates the many layers of Russian society. An engaging and entertaining look at almost 2000 years of Russian history. – Andy Brennan
