{Growing up among the ruins.}

In which her ladyship, the editor, possibly packs too many books, a bookshop decides to stock only autographed copies, and it is Mr. Ron Rash's opinion that the secret to a successful book tour is vitamin shots.

Dearest Readers,

It is, perhaps, a little silly, but her ladyship, the editor is currently in a dither packing for her upcoming trip to the SIBA Discovery Show in Raleigh, NC Next weekend. This is the big book industry fall show in the South -- lots of excitement over all the books coming this holiday season. 

So what is sending her ladyship into such a dither? Trying to decide what to wear? Not at all. It is trying to which books to bring with her to read while she is at the book conference. She's narrowed down the possibilities to about six for the four-day trip.  Surely that is not too excessive?

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Soon: StoriesRowing to Darien

March 1839, just after midnight on the Altamaha River. The air smells of silt and fish and wood smoke. The hoot of a horned owl carries across the water, the creak of oarlocks and the splash of oats. The moon is up, one night past full; it throws a bright track on the water, and across this track Frances Butler rows a boat with a lantern set on the thwart. Out under the big moon that lights the whole sky, the lantern flame looks like a fragment of the larger brightness escaping across the river. That's how she thinks of it as she rows--a mission, not a flight--to dignify the journey and keep the fear at bay.

Book & Author Gossip

South Toward Home

South Toward Home“To be Southern is to grow up among the ruins,” journalist (and native Alabamian) Margaret Eby muses in her fascinating paean to the people and places that inspired some of the most revered chroniclers of life below the Mason Dixon line. Through a string of mini-biographies, Eby travels to locales such as William Faulkner’s “postage stamp” of native soil in Oxford, Mississippi and the rough-hewn Bacon County, Georgia that fueled Harry Crews’ gothic tales and fuses her own experiences with the lives behind the letters. 9780393241112

Louisiana Wild

Louisiana WildThis gorgeous new coffee table book by Lockwood honors and celebrates what makes Louisiana special, plus calls attention to the preservative work of the Conservancy while delighting the senses with his breath-taking artistry. Readers will be amazed at the biodiversity of Louisiana, plus realize there are preserves located throughout the state — more than 60 in 33 parishes — many of which may only be familiar to birders and nature enthusiasts.  9780807161234

The Bookstore that only sells signed copies

The Alabama Booksmith is admittedly hard to find. It keeps few titles on its shelves. There is no coffee shop on the premises, no magazine rack or children's book plush toy tie-ins. Yet, this place boasts of booming business and rabid fans, thanks to one special feature: every copy of every one of its books has been signed by the authorAbove the Waterfall

Ron Rash on book tours

I talked with Rash by phone recently, peppering him about the promotion side of the writing life. He laughed because he was remembering one tour when he grew so bone-weary, he stumbled into a strange drug store in a strange town, lured by a sign in the window offering Vitamin B-12 shots. It helped.

Among the missing

The Gates of EvangelineCharlotte “Charlie” Cates has had a rough time. Her husband ran off with another woman and then her young son died from a brain aneurysm. She jeopardized her journalism job by taking time off from work to deal with these events, and she spends her days wallowing in self-pity. She takes sleeping pills to find peace from otherwise restless nights. Then Cates is asked by an old boss to write the history of a family whose 2-year-old son vanished from his locked bedroom in the early 1980s. The mystery has never been solved  9780399174001

Sales up at indie bookstores

Between the World and Me“Sales were up about 10% this summer,” said Tom Campbell, co-owner of the Regulator Bookshop in Durham, N.C. “We have more foot traffic. That’s translating into more sales.” The Regulator was one of a number of stores that reported selling “amazing” quantities of a book that was published the same day as Watchman(July 14), Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between the World and Me.

Author 2 Author: Lady Banks talks to Bridgette Lacy

Her ladyship, the editor talks to Bridgette Lacy about the joys of Sunday Dinner

Bridgette Lacy

LB: This is an unusual addition to the UNC Press "Savor the South" series -- most of the books are about single ingredients or dishes: "Buttermilk," "Peaches," "Biscuits,"(I have the "Bourbon" one!). So how did the idea for "Sunday Dinner" come about?

Sunday DinnerBL: Sunday Dinner was such a big part of my life growing up that I have a natural affinity for the subject.  I was well aware of the single ingredient focus of the series but I needed the whole meal.  I felt so strongly about the concept that I pitched the idea to Editor Elaine Maisner.  She wasn’t initially sold on Sunday Dinner since it was a departure from the initial concept. However, after sharing my stories about my beloved culinary-minded Papa and my connection to shared meals and the value of breaking bread with those you love, she embraced the idea too.  So Sunday Dinner was born.

LB: Most of the recipes in the book seem to be from your own family and friends, but some aren't. How did you pick a recipe for the book if it wasn't one from your own memories?

BL: I consider myself an expert taster.  As a former features writer and food columnist for The News & Observer I was invited to many meals.  Over the years, I’ve made mental note of food combinations and ingredients whether from a friend’s dinner table or a favorite restaurant.  When compiling recipes for the book, I knew I wanted to include main dishes, sides and breads that might be somewhat familiar but also wanted to include recipes that could be prepared to elevate the big meal of the week.

LB: It seems to me that this is more than a cookbook, it's a call for a kind of lifestyle -- one where we take the time to connect with the people who matter to us over a shared meal. What picture comes to mind when you hear the words "Sunday dinner"?

BL: I envision friends and family gathered around the table eager to dive into delicious, well-seasoned dishes. The centerpiece would be a big meat such as a perfectly-browned roast or a Sunday staple such as fried chicken. A couple of baskets filled with homemade bread would be in reaching distance for the guests. Of course there would also be plenty of desserts to satisfy that after-dinner sweet tooth.  The table might be set with China, crisp linens and large glass tumblers.  Sunday dinner would also have lots of big and small conversations with hearty bouts of laughter all around, a sure sign that the fellowship is being enjoyed just as much as the meal.

LB: As you point out in the book, we are a nation of busy people. Many are single. Many settle for subsisting on microwaved meals, take out, and rushed meals in restaurants. How can they have a Sunday Dinner tradition in their lives?

BL: Sunday dinner buoys the spirit especially when it’s shared with the folks you love. You can make it a collaborative effort.  When I lived in Indianapolis, I started a Sunday Dinner group.  There were four of us and we rotated hosting duties once a month.  At the time, we were all single and away from home. I also used the occasion to clear my dining room table and pull out my pretty underused China. If you’re thinking about starting a similar group, here are a few things to consider. Share the hosting responsibilities. Break down the tasks of the meal.  Have everyone bring a dish to contribute.   I think you feel better sharing a meal with friends and family and a dinner group can fit that bill.

LB: I think of Sunday dinner as a full course meal, but your book doesn't have an appetizer section. Why not?

BL: My grandfather’s Sunday Dinner needed no opening act. It was such a big meal, the largest one of the week with several vegetables, always homemade breads, maybe two meats, and homemade pies and cake. So I just stayed with that tradition.

LB: I love this statement about your grandfather: "He taught me the first bite is with the eye" Can you explain what that means?

BL: Papa’s food was so pretty.  It was always laid out in a nice bowl or dish and decorated beautifully.  In general, he liked things neat and ordered and his meals were no different.  He would take lots of time to score his ham and strategically insert the cloves so the pattern was just right.  His potato salad would be adorned with even slices of boiled eggs and sprinkled with paprika for that perfect pop of color.  I learned to love the simple beauty of a well-prepared and well-presented meal from my grandfather and it guides my own food offerings today.

LB: I also love your advice for people looking to establish their own Sunday Dinner traditions: "Use real linen and china, what are you saving it for?" -- as someone who just inherited her grandmother's dishes, that resonated with me!  But it is really about recognizing what are meaningful traditions in your own life, and allowing them to grow, isn't it?

BL: Yes, it’s about savoring this very minute and enjoying the things that are in front of you today.  Several years ago, I had brain surgery.  As I healed, that’s when I really began to use everything.  Dishes, clothes, even books I had put off reading.  I realized “that special day” is right here, right now.  Everyday tea cups and dishes are more like pieces of art to me because they make me feel better when I use them, often because they are connected to things that are meaningful.   My mother gave me a set of small yellow plates and I remember she used them to serve pancakes on when I was visiting.  Now, when I use those dishes whether for pancakes or something else, I think of her.  No need to wait for tomorrow to take advantage of all the wonderful things sitting in front of you today.  We work so hard for all of these things.  I say, use them.  Enjoy them.  Life is not a dress rehearsal.

LB: In the South, as you point out, Sunday traditions revolve around Church. What are some of the ways in which Sunday Dinner and going to Church are linked to each other?

BL: My grandparents and parents were church-goers. Interesting enough, my grandparents attended separate church. My grandmother went to Diamond Hill Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Va., and my grandfather loved the old country church in Madison Heights, Va. We normally attended grandma’s church but on special occasions like a homecoming we would go to the country church. At Papa’s church, those old ladies would often sing a capella and then sometimes the pianist would join in. He would say, “She can really knock a piano.” My shoes would be a clicking, loving the way those ladies sang, so pure. Church and Sunday Dinner were connected because it was all part of the blessing. My family felt all the good things came from God and Sunday Dinner was a part of that.

LB: Reading through the book, and trying out many of the recipes, I felt like one of your goals was to strike a balance between tradition and the demands of our modern era. You make a point of saying, for example, that it's fine to use store-bought pie crust if you don't have the time or talent to make it from scratch. Were there any traditions that you left out of the book?

BL: I mentioned it but I can’t emphasize it enough, clean the kitchen as you go. Wash the pots as you use them.

LB: What would be your ideal Sunday Dinner for this time of year, September?

BL: Hmmm. There are so many choices, so little time.  OK, if I have to narrow it down how about some Fragrant Sunday Chicken with Olives and Apricots, Green Beans with Fingerling Potatoes, Cucumber Tomato Salad and Papa’s Nilla Wafer Brown Pound Cake. I am full already.

Okra Picks

From the Okra Picks

A Free StateThe author of City of Refuge returns with a startling and powerful novel of race, violence, and identity set on the eve of the Civil War.

The year is 1855. Blackface minstrelsy is the most popular form of entertainment in a nation about to be torn apart by the battle over slavery. Henry Sims, a fugitive slave and a brilliant musician, has escaped to Philadelphia, where he earns money living by his wits and performing on the street. He is befriended by James Douglass, leader of a popular minstrel troupe struggling to compete with dozens of similar ensembles, who imagines that Henry's skill and magnetism might restore his troupe's sagging fortunes.

The problem is that black and white performers are not allowed to appear together onstage. Together, the two concoct a masquerade to protect Henry's identity, and Henry creates a sensation in his first appearances with the troupe. Yet even as their plan begins to reverse the troupe's decline, a brutal slave hunter named Tull Burton has been employed by Henry's former master to track down the runaway and retrieve him, by any means necessary.

Bursting with narrative tension and unforgettable characters, shot through with unexpected turns and insight, A Free State is a thrilling reimagining of the American story by a novelist at the height of his powers.

Recommended by Indie Booksellers

A Free StateTom Piazza's new novel, A Free State, is a book to savor.  On the face of it, it is a book about an escaped slave, a blackface minstrel troupe, and a slave hunter in antebellum Philadelphia, and concerns what happens when these three elements collide.  However, in Piazza's hands, what could be an oft-told tale becomes something else entirely.  A Free State explores questions of masking and identity and whether or not people can choose their identities or even their destinies.  Even the title takes on new meaning as the book progresses, and leaves the reader with as many questions as answers by the end. --Kelly Burchfield, Booksellers at Laurelwood Memphis, TN

 

Vincent Paints His HouseVincent Paints His House by Tedd Arnold - Holiday House - $16.95 -  Pub. date 9/15/15 Vincent Van Gogh's house needs painting. Various creatures, living on the property, express their opinions on the color choice. Read during a story time this book was a child and parent favorite.   Audience members enjoyed the repetition of words and chanted them as a spider, caterpillar, beetle, bird, butterfly, snake, mouse and bat promoted their favorite color as an option.   Also appreciated were Arnold's illustrations and identifications of different shades of colors in labeled paint tubes. A surprise ending features Van Gogh's painting style. Ages 3 - 6 --Linda at Quail Ridge Books  9780823432103

The WalkThe Walk by Richard Paul Evans From the very first page, Evans delivers a powerful and poetic tale. Through the first person narrative, the author proves that true human character is revealed during critical times. The quotes from Alan’s diary that start each chapter, give a preview as to what is to come. Readers will be able to relate to Alan’s desire to walk away from everything and thanks to the use of descriptive words, they will feel as though they are walking and eating right next to him. Despite the fact that the book starts with Alan in Key West, he is still in the state of Washington throughout this whole novel. The Walk is a dramatic start to a promising series that will compel readers to follow Alan’s journey. Nicole McManus, My Sisters Books  9781439191422
