Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Anything Could HappenLet me tell you about the first time I knew for sure I was in love with Matt Gooby.

We were in church. Reverend Greene was winding down her annual September 11th sermon, saying, “Hold fast to that which is good,” her blond bouffant wobbling as she leaned toward the congregation with a pleading sincerity. “Our eternal home,” she said, “is really only just half a step away from any of us. And the moment when it comes time to take that half step—we can’t know when, obviously—but chances are it might not be pretty. Chances are the timing won’t feel right.

And, folks”—I loved that she addressed us all like that—“I’m just trying to be straight with you, but the time to hold fast to that which is good is now. It wasn’t yesterday. It’s not nine years from now. It’s not when we retire. Or when we graduate.  It is now. That which is good is now.”

Everyone was dead quiet then. Just a few creaks coming up from the saggy wooden pews. I tried not to look around because I got the sense that maybe some people were crying.

--Will Walton, Anything Could Happen (Push, 2015) 9780545709545

Book & Author Gossip

Guy de la Valdene's Key West

On the Water. . . really what I remember most are the close friends, a great deal of fishing, and then, off to the side, the partying.  Then there was Key West, and as I’ve told a lot of people, you know, my Key West was different from Hemingway’s Key West, and Hemingway’s Key West was different from the guy before him, and these things change every twenty years or so. People now live in Key West in a place I think is tacky but that they find intriguing. What I loved about Key West in ’74, the guys who were there in ’54 probably would think was the shits. So it’s just a natural progression, but it was a wonderful time to be alive. And as you say, there were three or four guys who went on to do awfully well. They will all be remembered. 9781493007936

Books, Beer and Wine

Change is coming to Literary Bookpost with an eye to bring more people into the store and create a gathering place.  The store will start serving beer and wine, along with soft drinks, starting June 2. Literary Bookpost will be closed Sundays and Mondays and extending hours on Thursdays and Fridays.

Hammett collections comes to USC

The Maltese FalconA major collection of letters, photos and publications of the late crime fiction author Dashiell Hammett has been acquired by the University of South Carolina and will be made available to students and scholars within the coming year. Hammett was a high-school dropout who created such iconic American characters as the gritty gumshoe Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon, and the witty and worldly couple Nick and Nora Charles in The Thin Man. 9780679722649

 

Off the Books

Off the BooksPeder Zane was taken aback when a publisher expressed interest in columns he wrote as the book review editor at The News & Observer. “I assumed my newspaper columns had the shelf life of yellow bananas,” he said. “Off the Books: On Literature and Culture” (University of South Carolina Press), is a collection of 111 of the more than 600 columns Zane wrote as book review editor from 1997 to 2009. He has organized them into a dozen thematic sections with topics ranging from Wilt Chamberlain to William Faulkner, gay rights to racism and 9/11, as well as profiles of North Carolina writers from Reynolds Price to David Sedaris. 9781611175080

Jim Grimsley: How I Shed My Skin

How I Shed My SkinWith disarming gentleness, Jim Grimsley’s new memoir conveys a harsh message sure to unsettle the well-mannered, well-meaning, white Southerner: You likely are a racist in spite of yourself. In How I Shed My Skin: Unlearning the Racist Lessons of a Southern Childhood (Algonquin Books), Grimsley explores with unflinching, plainspoken honesty the formative conventions of his upbringing that made him a “good, little racist.” 9781616203764

Tiny Door coming to Charis

The Tiny Doors ATL movement has spread to include a notable name in Atlanta’s LGBT community. Organizers behind the public art project announced Friday that the next Tiny Door is coming to Charis Books & More, with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring Tiny Rosie the Riveter set for Saturday at 2 p.m. The project is the brainchild of Sarah Meng and Karen Anderson, who both identify as queer/femme. They installed the first door in the Krog Street Tunnel last June, and with time random people starting placing trinkets by the door. Tiny jack-o’-lanterns at Halloween, a snowman during the holidays, etc. The movement picked up steam and doors appeared on the BeltLine, at Inman Park Pet Works, Paris On Ponce, a tree on Freedom Park Trail, Little Shop of Stories in Decatur and more. And now Charis is in on the fun, with the door to be placed on the column on the front porch of the store.

Literary Arts: Flannery O’Connor 3 Ounce

The Complete StoriesThe 30th stamp in the Literary Arts series honors Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964), who crafted unsettling and darkly comic stories and novels about the potential for enlightenment and grace in what seem like the worst possible moments. The color portrait on this stamp, a watercolor painting completed digitally, is based on a black-and-white photograph taken when O’Connor was a student at the Georgia State College for Women from 1942 to 1945. Surrounding O’Connor are peacock feathers, a symbol often associated with the author. The words “THREE OUNCE” on this stamp indicate its usage value. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the applicable price for the price category printed on them, at the time of use. The 93 cent Forever stamp will be issued June 5 in McLean, VA, at the NAPEX Stamp Show. Art director Phil Jordan of Falls Church, VA, designed the stamp with artwork by Sam Weber of Brooklyn, NY. 9780374127527

Just out: Summer's End

Summer's EndIn the powerful and heartwarming conclusion to her bestselling Lowcountry Summer trilogy, New York Times author Mary Alice Monroe brings her readers back to the charm and sultry beauty of Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, to reveal how the pull of family bonds and true love is as strong and steady as the tides. 

It is summer’s end and Sea Breeze, the family’s beloved estate on Sullivan’s Island, must be sold. It is an emotional time of transition as Mamaw and the three sisters each must face loss and find a new place in the world. 

Harper, the youngest sister, arrived at Sea Breeze intending to stay only a weekend, but a rift with her wealthy, influential mother left her without direction or a home. During this remarkable summer, free from her mother’s tyranny and with the help of her half sisters, Harper discovered her talents and independent spirit. 

But summer is ending, and the fate of Sea Breeze hinges on Harper’s courage to decide the course of her own life. To do so, she must release her insecurities, recognize her newfound strengths, and must accept love fully into her life.

From Okrah to Oprah

Lalita TademyWhile writing a historical novel, I spend hours alone, day after day, month after month, year after year, fashioning words and phrases to tell a story steeped in the past. The Southern past. Real life often raps insistently at the door and barges in, sure, but a majority of my time is spent, whether awake or asleep, carrying characters of my own creation in the deep recesses of my brain. I feel responsible for them as well as beholden to them. They continue to sharpen, clarify, grow, and assume their ultimate personas as time passes, growing stronger. And for this long gestation period, only a very few people know who these characters are, and even fewer the exact bond between them and me. My characters, and their stories, remain a huge secret awaiting a future unveiling.

Citizens CreekWhen the big day finally arrives to introduce these characters to readers, I never know how they will be received. Are they sympathetic? Believable? Will readers care? Will they find the re-created world of the past interesting or relevant to the present? Did I do my job as an author sufficiently to bring them as alive for my readers as they have become for me?

My first historical novel was an Oprah pick, and because Cane River struck such a nerve with Ms. Winfrey, those characters found their way into countless homes and hearts, not only in the US, but all around the world. And as a first time novelist, I was both ecstatic and relieved that the unveiling was so impactful. The Oprah brand is strong. My second novel, Red River, was also embraced, not to the extent that Oprah enabled, but enough to make me believe that those characters had also found their place.

The Oprah experience was fourteen years ago. For me, a long time passes between books, and I’m never sure if my audience will stay with me. These are impatient times. A core set of my readers live in or are from the South. If you're reading these words, that probably includes you, and you can certainly understand what a unique and wonderful audience that is.

And so it is not understatement to say that when I heard the news that the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) chose my third book, Citizens Creek, to be their inaugural One Book, One South pick for the Fall of 2014, I was thrilled. I had a moment of doing the happy dance in my house (thankfully alone!), followed by a moment of quiet tears. What an honor to be the first selection! I got to go to the SIBA Fall Discovery show in Norfolk, Virginia, where I met other wonderful southern authors and chat with the force of nature that is Wanda Jewell, SIBA’s Executive Director, before presenting to a roomful of enthusiastic booksellers. Validation such as this before the official launch of a new work is nourishment for an author’s soul.

I wish I could hug each and every one of the independent booksellers who supported Citizens Creek, and hand sold it to their customers. Independents keep many of us authors creatively alive and their trusting customers aware of a range of books that might otherwise go undetected.

From Oprah pick to Okra pick – now that’s the ultimate good feeling. Thank you SIBA.

From the Okra Picks

Anything Could Happen
by Will Walton

Anything Could HappenWhen you're in love with the wrong person for the right reasons, anything could happen. 

Tretch lives in a very small town where everybody's in everybody else's business. Which makes it hard for him to be in love with his straight best friend. For his part, Matt is completely oblivious to the way Tretch feels - and Tretch can't tell whether that makes it better or worse. 

The problem with living a lie is that the lie can slowly become your life. For Tretch, the problem isn't just with Matt. His family has no idea who he really is and what he's really thinking. The girl at the local bookstore has no clue how off-base her crush on him is. And the guy at school who's a thorn in Tretch's side doesn't realize how close to the truth he's hitting. 

Tretch has spent a lot of time dancing alone in his room, but now he's got to step outside his comfort zone and into the wider world. Because like love, a true self can rarely be contained. 

"Anything Could Happen" is a poignant, hard-hitting exploration of love and friendship, a provocative debut that shows that sometimes we have to let things fall apart before we can make them whole again.
