Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

The Third ReconstructionLate August in North Carolina is harvest time for tobacco growers. Long before the sun rises above the long leaf pines, the air is already thick and heavy in the fields of the eastern sandhills, where I was raised. Men and women roll up their sleeves and bend their backs to prime tobacco, taking the bottom leaves first. I grew up in these fields, listening to the songs people hum when they know there's work to be done and the day is only going to get hotter. Some days I still wake up humming those songs.

August 28, 2013, I woke up at home in North Carolina. It had been a long, hot, summer, and my body was tired. But as a mother of the church in Montgomery, Alabama, famously told Dr. Martin Luther King during the bus boycott, even though my feet were tired, my soul was rested. I woke up that morning humming a song I learned from mothers of the church in eastern North Carolina.

I've got a feeling everything's gonna be all right.
Oh I've got a feeling everything's gonna be all right.
I've got a feeling everything's gonna be all right.
Be all right, be all right, be all right.

--Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement (Beacon Press, 2016) 9780807083604

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers

From the January Indie Next List

My Name Is Lucy BartonMy Name Is Lucy Barton: A Novel, by Elizabeth Strout
(Random House, 9781400067695, $26)

“Strout has the incredible ability to take ordinary, even mundane situations and use them to make acute observations on the human condition. A mother’s visit to her daughter in the hospital becomes the vehicle for an astute examination of daily needs, desires, yearnings, wishes, and dreams that become so much of the remembered experience. Using spare, precise, but beautiful language, she has produced another masterpiece in a growing list of impressive work.” —Bill Cusumano, Square Books, Oxford, MS -

Fallen LandFallen Land: A Novel, by Taylor Brown
(St. Martin’s Press, 9781250077974, $25.99)

Fallen Land by debut novelist Brown is like a blend of Charles Frazier’s Cold Mountain and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. In the setting of the southern Appalachians and crossing Georgia during Sherman’s March to the Sea, Brown shares the beautifully written story of Callum, a young Irish immigrant, and Ava, the orphan daughter of a Carolina doctor who perished in the war. Together they stay one step ahead of a loosely formed band of vicious bounty hunters at the trailing end of Sherman’s scorching destruction of the South. Determination, survival, and love all combine to form a thrilling and romantic story set during the final days of the Civil War.” —Doug Robinson, Eagle Eye Book Shop, Decatur, GA

The VisitorsThe Visitors: A Novel, by Simon Sylvester
(Melville House, 9781612194639, trade paper, $18.95)

“Neil Gaiman meets Tana French in this debut thriller that takes place on a remote island off the coast of Scotland. Flora is as independent, vulnerable, and anxious for adulthood yet yearning for magic in all of its guises as any teen you’re likely to meet in literature. It is no surprise that she is drawn into the mystery of a man and his daughter moving into the abandoned Dog Cottage next door. The braiding of Scottish myth into this tale of suspicious disappearances adds a compelling twist to the wonderfully evocative setting and great cast of supporting characters.” —Sarah Hinckley, Hudson Booksellers, Marietta, GA

Only Love Can Break Your HeartOnly Love Can Break Your Heart: A Novel, by Ed Tarkington
(Algonquin Books, 9781616203825, $25.95)

“Tarkington’s debut novel feels positively Shakespearean in its sense of family dynamics and the sometimes destructive power of love, but it speaks with the deceptively plain, poignant language of a Neil Young song. Set in the 1980s in a small Virginia town, the book tells the coming-of-age story of Rocky Askew as he copes with fraternal abandonment, dangerous liaisons, caregiving, and one town scandal after another with little help other than his brother Paul’s old vinyl collection. Only Love Can Break Your Heart speaks to anybody working to function, however imperfectly, in any type of family.” —Andrew Hedglin, Lemuria Bookshop, Jackson, MS

The Sound of GravelThe Sound of Gravel: A Memoir, by Ruth Wariner
(Flatiron Books, 9781250077691, $27.99)

“This is a memoir made extraordinary simply by the fact that the author lived to tell the tale. Wariner grew up in a polygamist cult across the Mexican border, the 39th of her father’s 41 children. Surrounded by crushing poverty and repeated tragedy, little Ruth was taught that girls are born to be used by callous men and an angry God. However, she had just enough contact with her maternal grandparents and the outside world to realize the bizarre practices at home didn’t match up with the rest of civilization. With quiet persistence, she grew into an adolescent and began to consider the possibility of escape. Riveting and reminiscent of Jeannette Walls’ The Glass Castle.” —Mary Laura Philpott, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN

Carrying Albert HomeA modern-day civil rights champion tells the stirring story of how he helped start a movement to bridge America's racial divide.

Over the summer of 2013, Rev. William Barber led more than a hundred thousand people at rallies across North Carolina to protest cuts to voting rights and the social safety net, which the state's conservative legislature had implemented. These protests, which came to be known as Moral Mondays, have blossomed into the largest social movement the South has seen since the civil rights era and, since then, it has spread to states as diverse as Florida, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Ohio. In "The Third Reconstruction," Rev. Barber tells the story of how he helped lay the groundwork for the Moral Mondays movement and explores the unfulfilled promises of America's multiethnic democracy. He draws on the lessons of history to offer a vision of a new Reconstruction, one in which a diverse coalition of citizens black and white, religious and secular, Northern and Southern fight side-by-side for racial and economic justice for all Americans. "The Third Reconstruction" is both a blueprint for activism at the state level and an inspiring call to action from the twenty-first century's most effective grassroots organizer.

Book & Author Gossip

 

Top Books of 2015, Mississippi-style

The Land BreakersEhle broke new ground for Appalachian writers

Reading Ehle’s 1964 classic “The Land Breakers” will tell you something about the people who were the first white settlers to turn wilderness into farmland and town, into what became Asheville. I remember taking a workshop 30 years or so ago with Ehle, here in Asheville. He said he didn't like the label of "Appalachian Writer" because there are no "Appalachian Readers." I think he meant his audience was wider than just a region, that Asheville’s ongoing story is also the American story. 

Malaprop's  Bestselling books of 2015

Start the year by going back in the day

The Land Breakers“Back in the Day Bakery:  Made With Love,” is a cookbook which takes comfort food to a new level. This is what comfort food eats when it wants comfort food. Cheryl Day and husband, Griff, own Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Georgia. Of course, one expects a Southern cookbook to include at least one recipe for pecans, and the Days don’t disappoint; they offer several, including their recipe for Buttermilk Brown Sugar Cheesecake with Sorghum-Caramel Pecans. It looks delectable, but I had no idea what sorghum until I read the Days’ full description. 

Katy Munger named 2016 Piedmont Laureate

Katy Munger, a Durham-based mystery fiction author, has been selected as the region's 2016 Piedmont Laureate. During 2016, Ms. Munger will appear at workshops, reading programs and speaking engagements throughout Wake, Durham and Orange counties. 

January is Algonquin Month at Quail Ridge Books

Life After LifeAlgonquin Books has arguably done more for the advancement of Southern literature than any other publisher.  Founded in 1983 by Louis Rubin Jr. and Shannon Ravenel in Chapel Hill, Algonquin has launched the careers of Jill McCorkle, Clyde Edgerton, Larry Brown, Kaye Gibbons,  Robert Morgan and so many more iconic authors. Though it publishes only 20 new titles a year, Algonquin is recognized around the world as an award-winning literary house with numerous bestsellers.  Algonquin has also begun a Young Readers imprint for books for children and teens. We're delighted to call them neighbors and honored to be able to host so many of their  fine authors. 

Rick Bragg's view of the South knows loss

My Southern JourneyOver lunch the other day, an editor asked if I’d like to write a “Rick Bragg” column for her magazine. It was a nice offer, though I sensibly knew that the only man who can write a “Rick Bragg” column is Bragg himself. Yet I was heartened to be reminded that Bragg’s style has become such a thing unto itself. A “Rick Bragg” column, like a Shaker chair or a Steinway piano, suggests its own way of seeing the world and capturing it through craft. 

New bookstore coming to Key West

Come next month, Key West will no longer be a one-bookstore town. The Studios of Key West will offer a first glimpse of the space that will become a Books & Books store on its first floor at 533 Eaton St. on Jan. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. “It’s a preview,” said Elena Devers, deputy director of The Studios, adding that sales won’t be happening. “Probably shortly after that we’ll be up and running.” The nonprofit recently hired a full-time store manager for the bookstore, which will sport more than 75 feet of wood shelves holding fiction, nonfiction, bestsellers, poetry, art and architecture titles and magazines.

Meet Cate McGowan

Danny BernstienI’m a hiker, hike leader, and outdoor writer. I’ve been a committed hiker for over 40 years, having completed the Appalachian Trail, all the trails in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the South beyond 6000, and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail across North Carolina.

I’ve written two hiking guides for the Southern Appalachians, and a travel narrative on hiking the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. My book Forests, Alligators, Battlefields: My Journey through the National Parks of the South will come out in 2016, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

The Mountains-To-Sea Trail Across North CarolinaThe Mountains-To-Sea Trail Across North Carolina

Walking a Thousand Miles Through Wildness, Culture and History

The Mountains-to-Sea Trail shows off the most spectacular, historic and quirky elements of the North Carolina landscape. Stretching one thousand miles from Clingmans Dome in the Smokies to Jockey's Ridge State Park in the Outer Banks, the route takes in Fraser fir trees and pelicans, old grist and textile mills, working cotton and tobacco farms, Revolutionary War sites and two British cemeteries complete with Union Jacks. The trail is half on footpaths and half on back roads, offering experiences not only in nature but also in small towns, at historic monuments, in family cemeteries and in local shops. Author Danny Bernstein has taken it all in and shares her knowledge for those who might follow in her footsteps.
