{On what should and should not go into a pot of chili.}

In which Mr. Harrison Scott Key is deemed to be "a living miracle," Ms. Burdy Luttrell did not plan on being shot, the peacocks of Andalusia have a very bad year, and her ladyship, the editor, admits fall has arrived by making a pot of chili.

Dearest Readers,

On the first cool rainy day of fall, her ladyship always makes a pot of chili. This is not so much a ritual as it is common sense, for what else could taste better on such a day than a searingly hot concoction of chili peppers, beans, meat, onions, and spices? 

There are, of course, nearly as many notions as to what constitutes proper chili as to what makes authentic barbecue.  Her ladyship, being a Yankee by birth and a southerner by adoption, has a few rules of her own when it comes to what ought to go into the pot, (which, it must be said, is ideally a heavy cast iron kettle):

--beef or pork, preferably both. She regards chicken based chili as somewhat pathetic.
--beans, red or black. White chili is, once again, not really chili.
--tomatoes. This is one time she prefers canned to fresh. And she likes to use the cans with the whole peeled tomatoes which she can then mash into the pot. 
--peppers. Jalapeño, ancho, poblano, chipotle are all good. 
--beef broth or water. And if you are going to pour a bottle of beer in the pot, make it a regular old label. There's no point in using something that costs four dollars a bottle.
--chili powder. Lots of chili powder.

Everything else that people tend to add to their secret chili recipes during cook-off season: the corn and carrots, the cinnamon or cloves or (shudder) barbecue sauce -- all that is unnecessary. Tolerable if you are trying to use up some of the stuff in the fridge, but unnecessary.

Her ladyship's own recipe is called "Mule-Kicking Hot Chili" and comes from Jan and Michael Stern's Chili Nation, It's the chili recipe chosen to represent the state of Missouri, and it does not include beans, so her ladyship rectifies the error when she makes it.

Carrying Albert HomeMule-Kicking Hot Chili

3 dried ancho peppers
2 dried pasilla chiles
2 dried chipotle chiles
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound beef round, trimmed of fat and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
1.5 pounds sweet Italian sausage
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
1.5 teaspoons hot mustard
1 can Budweiser beer
1 tablespoon masa harina dissolved in a 1/4 cup of warm water.

1. Place the chiles in a large heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand for 30 minutes, until soft; stem and seed them. In a food processor, puree with some water. Set aside.

2. In a Dutch oven, saute the onion and garlic in the oil until soft. Add the beef and cook t until browned. Drain excess fat. Set aside.

3. Preheat the broiler or grill. Cook the sausages under the broilers or on the grill until they are booked through and crispy skinned. Cut into 1 inch disks and add to the Dutch over along with the chile puree, sugar, salt, pepper, oregano, mustard and beer. (Here is where her ladyship also adds the beans, jalapeños, and chili powder). Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook at a simmering boil for about 40 minutes. Add masa harina mixture and cook for ten more minutes.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

BurdyBurdy didn't set out that morning aiming to get shot by the end of the day. But it was the cause of her wondering if Creator God hadn't up and moved off the mountain to a whole new place, like a Yankee retiree relocating to Seaside, Florida. Some TV preachers like to say God was put out with his people, his chosen people. Given all Burdy came to bear witness to, she could hardly blame Creator if he walked out on the whole lot of humanity and never looked back.

Dr. O'Connor was the trauma surgeon on duty at the University of Tennessee Medical Center when Burdy arrived that Thursday evening in late September 1987. She was in surgery for several hours. Later, in the recovery room,  Burdy's eyes fluttered whenever anyone called out her name.

"We are going to continue to monitor you for the next 24 hours," Dr. O'Connor said. "I'm hoping we can save your leg, Mrs. Luttrell."

"That's good news, huh, Mrs. Luttrell?" a recovery room nurse asked. 

Burdy did not consider getting shot at any kind of good news at all. She didn't respond to the question.

Book & Author Gossip

Saints at the River chosen for One Book One ReadSaints at the River

 “Saints at the River” by New York Times best selling author Ron Rash has been selected as this year's One Book Read at West Kentucky Community and Technical College. The book tells the story of a small South Carolina town that is thrown into the national spotlight when a young girl drowns and her body is trapped in a deep river eddy. The girl's parents want to attempt a rescue of the body but environmentalists are convinced the rescue operation will damage the river and set a dangerous precedent. Torn between the two sides is Maggie Glenn, a 28-year-old newspaper photographer, who grew up in the town and has been sent to document the controversial incident.  9780312424916

Oxford American announces new editor

Eliza Borné is the new editor of the Oxford American, succeeding Roger D. Hodge, who left the magazine in June. Borné joined the magazine in 2013 as associate editor and was promoted to managing editor in 2014. Since June 2015, she has served as interim editor.

Pat Conroy at 70

Pat Conroy is feeling pretty good these days. The fitness and nutrition regimen he’s been on for the past year or so – a program he famously started after his health reached rock bottom – has left him feeling better and given him more energy. And he’s writing more – an added bonus. “It’s working,” he said by phone recently, then quickly added, “I think.”

Martina Boone's Persuasion

PersuasionMagic may overflow among the inhabitants of Watson Island’s three plantations, but few see it as a gift. In fact, magic makes issues of love, trust and family more murky — and sometimes, deadly. Identifying who is good or bad depends as much on timing as the circumstances that will shift in the person’s favor. The constant challenge keeps the characters in Martina Boone’s “Heirs of Watson Island” series on guard and calculating.  9781481411257

The Brutal Murder of Mary Grace Peacock

The peacocks of Andalusia have had a brutal year. At the beginning of 2015 the aviary at the Milledgeville, Georgia dairy farm where Flannery O’Connor wrote and lived out the end of her short life, the aviary on the side of Andalusia sheltered three shimmering birds, all named after characters in O’Connor’s short stories from a public poll. Manley Pointer, the lone male of the ostentation, was christened after the villainous fake Bible salesman in “Good Country People.” The two female birds were Joy/Hulga, named after the woman whose wooden leg Pointer steals, and Mary Grace, the hostile teenager in “Revelation.” Now, only Joy/Hulga remains.

Harrison Scott Key: Living miracle

The World's Largest ManThat Harrison Scott Key is even with us today is something of a miracle. How he avoided meeting his maker in any number of his father’s pursuits is hard to fathom. In this memoir, the elder Key is the world’s largest man, a reference not only to his size (“his gut was an oaken cask”) but to his impact on his family after moving them from Memphis to rural Mississippi. He believed that “boys need to be raised in the country,” where they can hunt or dig holes or scrub utility poles. The bit about utility poles? Who knows?

Harriet Klausner

Second "Minotaur" Book will be published next year

The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette BreakTickled pink to announce that my novel, The Minotaur Takes His Own Sweet Time, was accepted by John F. Blair Publisher, for release in the fall of 2016. These are the folks who did such a lovely job with my first Minotaur. It feels like returning to some ancestral home.   9780312308926

Okra Picks

From the Okra Picks:

Pretending to DanceMolly Arnette is very good at keeping secrets. She and her husband live in San Diego, where they hope to soon adopt a baby. But the process terrifies her. As the questions and background checks come one after another, Molly worries that the truth she's kept hidden about her North Carolina childhood will rise to the surface and destroy not only her chance at adoption, but her marriage as well. She ran away from her family twenty years ago after a shocking event left her devastated and distrustful of those she loved: Her mother, the woman who raised her and who Molly says is dead but is very much alive. Her birth mother, whose mysterious presence raised so many issues. The father she adored, whose death sent her running from the small community of Morrison Ridge. Now, as she tries to find a way to make peace with her past and embrace a future filled with promise, she discovers that even she doesn't know the truth of what happened in her family of pretenders. Told with Diane Chamberlain's compelling prose and gift for deft exploration of the human heart, "Pretending to Dance" is an exploration of family, lies, and the complexities of both..

From Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, North Carolina

The Tusk That Did the DamageFrom Nancy:

I've always had a soft spot for elephants and that spot grew into outrage by the story told in the novel The Tusk That Did the Damage by Tania James (Knopf $24.95). It plumbs the moral complexities of the ivory trade in Southern India as told by the poachers, a documentary filmmaker, and a rogue elephant known as the Gravedigger. This impressive novel brings a "sharp and unnerving sensibility to bear on dismal and necessary events." (New York Times) 9780385354127



EmmaEmma: A Modern Retelling (Pantheon $25.95), Alexander McCall Smith's adaptation of Jane Austen's novel, Emma, brings two of my favorite authors together (in a sense) and the result is a very entertaining, contemporary retelling of one of Austin's most popular novels, both showing remarkable understanding of human nature. This is the only adaptation of Austen's novels that I've ever liked. In fact, I loved it. 9780804197953

STAFF PICKS

Haunting Hill HouseTwo from Samantha: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson (Penguin $16). This recent focus of the Diane Rehm show is considered the best ghost story of the 20th Century. Hill House is a grotesque edifice that visitors loathe to enter. The interior is worse. Corners are not angled properly, floors are uneven, rooms are arranged without logic. With each page, the boundaries between the natural and supernatural shift for the reader just as the physical boundaries within Hill House keep its visitors off balance. I was completely drawn in, unsettled and shaken. This is the perfect book for this Halloween season. 9780143039983


A Window OpensA Window Opens: A Novel by Elisabeth Egan (Simon & Schuster $26). Alice Pearse has the work-life balance figured out: great family, part time job and a nanny to die for. But when Alice must get a full time job she finds a position with a tech company that plans to open e-book reading lounges, thus "reinventing reading the way Starbucks reinvented coffee". What follows is a witty, intelligent, sometimes heart breaking take on the decades-old question "Can you really have it all?" Don't let this "carbon-based" book escape your radar. It's one of the best of the year. 9781501105432



A Line of BloodFrom Bill: When I started reading A Line of Blood by Ben McPherson (William Morrow $25.99) my first thought was "this is too literary for me, I probably won't finish it." I'm a thriller/action/science fiction kind of guy, and this book has not a single fist fight, gun fight, or spacecraft chase. But it IS a murder mystery, and after several more times of telling myself I probably wouldn't finish it, I discovered that I had, indeed, finished it. This is a wonderful debut novel in which the development of the characters unfolds as the mystery unfolds. There was a time when people paid a back-handed compliment to some books by saying "it's in the mystery genre but it reads like literature". With all of the fine mystery writers there are today that statement is no longer necessary. But darn it, Mr. McPherson's debut novel is in the mystery genre and it DOES read like literature! 9780062406101

READER REVIEW

The Gap of TimePerfect for curling up with during one of the increasingly long nights of the season, The Gap of Time by Jeanette Winterson (Hogarth $25) is a modern day cover of Shakespeare's romance, The Winters Tale, in which a cruelly foolish father/husband is redeemed by the power of love and, in Winterson's case, by DNA testing and a bit of quantum physics. The best parts of both Shakespeare's play and Winterson's cover occur when Autolycus is around. In the book, he is transformed from Shakespeare's rural rogue into a shady used car salesman trying to unload a philosophically unreliable Delorean. Suggestion: Skip the brief outline of the play included in the opening pages of the book; instead, go back to Shakespeare's original play and its beautiful language and his single most famous stage direction. --Jerry 9780804141352
