{Look back, look ahead (or, how to cook a mudfish.)}

In which her ladyship, the editor, looks forward, and back, and learns how to cook a mudfish.

December 29, 2013



Dearest Readers,

This is a time for both looking back and looking ahead. We look back at the year just gone and take stock of what we accomplished and what we learned. We look forward into the year to  come and into our dreams and hopes and goals for the future.

SIBA Book AwardIn the world of Southern Literature, “looking back” means “best of the year” lists. People are thinking about the best books they read over the last year.  What were yours?  And have you nominated them for the SIBA Book Award yet?

SIBA Book Award Nomination Form

Nominations close on Valentine’s Day, so you’ll want to make sure that your favorite books of the year are on the list. To be eligible, the book must be southern in nature and must have been published in 2013.

On the other hand, “looking ahead” means looking forward to the books we can’t wait to read. Booksellers recently chose their new selection of “Okra Picks” -- forthcoming southern books they are really excited about. The Winter Okra Picks are all coming out between January and March, so these are the books you’ll see on your local bookstore’s “new releases” and “staff picks” shelves.  They are the books you’ll get handed when you say you’re looking for something new, and they are the books that will end up on the top of your TBR stack--where hopefully they won’t stay for long. Here’s the full list:

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.

Swarm TreeHow to cook a mudfish

“This is quite a fish,” I said breathlessly. “You say you don’t know how to cook them?”

The fellow in the bow of the boat said, “No, we don’t eat ‘em. I don’t know how to cook ‘em.” But the guy in the back interrupted, “ Oh yeah, Daddy had a mudfish recipe.”

“Can you tell me?” I asked eagerly.
“Yeah, but it’s sort of complicated. You got a good memory?”

“Yeah,  I guess so. Here, I’ll write it down,” I said, grabbing my notebook.

“Now what Daddy said--you get a nice clean pine board, a nice soft pine board, and you take that board and then squeeze a bunch of lemon juice on the board, then some barbecue sauce, then a layer of thin slices of onions on that board. Then you split that fish open, and you stake him to that board and then you lay some mo’ onions on top and brush some barbecue sauce on top of that; then ketchup and some soy sauce, red pepper and black pepper, then some crushed garlic. Then you prop it up right there in front of the fire and cook it slow until it gets really cooked thought--sort of dry and crispy like. Then when you’re sure it’s really well done you scrape the fish off and then you eat the board!”

--Doug Elliot, in Swarm Tree: Of Honeybees, Honeymoons and the Tree of Life (Natural History Press, 2009 ) 9781596296756

Book & Author Gossip

Portals to the past: Art Center Waco presents William Joyce exhibit
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris LessmoreRecently, I was visiting Art Center Waco when a dozen or so fourth-graders visited from St. Mary’s School in West. Director Mark Arnold explained to the children how a book is developed from the germ of an idea with pencil sketches into written form with colored illustrations. After viewing the Joyce exhibit with all its colorful fantasy, the group was taken upstairs into the studio. There, each child was given paper and water colors and encouraged to create his or her own fantasy story. They began with pencil and then finally finished, as Joyce does, with the refinement of color.

Q&A with Morning Joe Book Club author Sheri Fink
Five Days at MemorialA time of crisis often brings out the best in human beings. You see how strong and resilient people are. There are many examples of creative thinking and selfless assistance to others in Five Days at Memorial. Whenever I would get outraged or upset by what I was seeing or hearing, I’d think about the fact that getting these events into the open could help other people contend with an emergency.

Amy AllenAmy has journaled her life experiences since age 12, her enthusiasm for life apparent in an eclectic resume that includes logging with a team of draft horses, baling Christmas trees, tapping maple trees, making rawhide for local drum-makers as well as more conventional work such as technical support, human resources and data analysis. She has brain-tanned buckskins, been a baker in inner city Philadelphia, and picked blueberries in western North Carolina.

Amy's Profile Page on STARS

Summoning the MountainsHoping to rekindle the spirit of freedom she once knew, a divorced, single mother sets aside family and society’s expectations to seek fulfillment by following a lifelong calling. On the eve of turning forty, Amy reaches for her personal goal of hiking the Appalachian Trail. Accepting the name of “Willow”, bestowed by her teenage sons, she settles them into new lives at their father’s house and departs on a 2000-mile walk. Willow journals of walking through storms, injuries, hunger and doubt. Surprised when her sixteen-year old is suspended from school, Willow bends to this new development to find herself mothering on the trail, learning as much from her son as he does from his adventure. When her son returns to school, Willow must find her place within the hiker community and face her fears alone. Amy transports the reader into the forest giving the armchair hiker a glimpse into a world of coyotes, butterflies, birds and bears,sharing her determination and frustration as she makes her way from Georgia to Maine on foot.

Bookstore Gossip

Booklovers Bookstore is closing its retail establishment on Huntsman Drive and will shift its focus to online business. Jan. 22 is the last day the shop will be open. “It was a very hard decision,” said Fran Bush, who owns Booklovers with her husband, Don, and daughter, Angela Poe. “Like every small business around, this economy hasn't helped us, but if it was just that, we could have possibly hung on. But with me getting sick just about every time I walk in the door of the store, it's not just worth it. “This wasn't supposed to happen. Having a book store was what my husband and I wanted to do in our retirement.” Booklovers Bookstore

Okra PicksFrom the Okra Picks

This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash
William Morrow & Company, $25.99 January
9780062088253

This Dark Road to MercyHailed as "mesmerizing" (New York Times Book Review) and "as if Cormac McCarthy decided to rewrite Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird" (Richmond Times-Dispatch), A Land More Kind Than Home made Wiley Cash an instant literary sensation. His resonant new novel, This Dark Road to Mercy, is a tale of love and atonement, blood and vengeance, a story that involves two young sisters, a wayward father, and an enemy determined to see him pay for his sins.

When their mother dies unexpectedly, twelve-year-old Easter Quillby and her six-year-old sister, Ruby, are shuffled into the foster care system in Gastonia, North Carolina, a little town not far from the Appalachian Mountains. But just as they settle into their new life, their errant father, Wade, an ex-minor league baseball player whom they haven't seen in years, suddenly reappears and steals them away in the middle of the night.

This Dark Road to MercyBrady Weller, the girls' court-appointed guardian, begins looking for Wade, and quickly turns up unsettling information linking him to a multimillion-dollar robbery. But Brady isn't the only one hunting him. Also on the trail is Robert Pruitt, a mercurial man nursing a years-old vendetta, a man determined to find Wade and claim what he believes he is owed.

The combination of Cash's evocative and intimate Southern voice and those of the alternating narrators, Easter, Brady, and Pruitt, brings this soulful story vividly to life. At once captivating and heartbreaking, This Dark Road to Mercy is a testament to the unbreakable bonds of family and the primal desire to outrun a past that refuses to let go
