Dearest Readers

Deep Run RootsHer ladyship, the editor, spent Election Day in the kitchen. Cooking relaxes her, and she, like most everyone in the country, was in dire need of some relaxing after such a long and fraught election season. There is really nothing more relaxing than the scent of white bean and kale soup simmering in a big kettle on the stove, or a skillet of hot cornbread just out of the oven. One feels one could face any future with a dish full of pan-roasted Brussels sprouts or a bowl of red beans and rice, Louisiana style. 

The cookbook on her ladyship's kitchen counter this week is Vivian Howard's Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South. Ms. Howard's corner of the South happens to be the corner her ladyship lives in, and it is a, well, celebration is really the only word for it. Instead of sections for "Entrees" or "Appetizers,"  every chapter is devoted to one particular ingredient especially important to the region. 

This means, for example that there is an entire chapter devoted to turnips. And also one for ground corn. And another one for not ground corn. Peaches, okra, tomatoes, pecans. . .come to think of it, the chapter list sounds remarkably like the titles to be found in the "Savor the South" cookbook series. (Her ladyship is now wondering whether a "Figs" or "Squash" book is in the offing). 

Okra Tomatoes Peaches Pecans

For Ms. Howard, good food is about comfort, and connection. There probably isn't a body in the country right now that couldn't use a little of both. 

Read Independently. And shop local.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book

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

Deep Run RootsI live today on the same winding rural road I grew up on. It's named for a water-powered gristmill a half mile from my house. Every tiny community in Eastern Carolina used to have a mill like this, where people gathered to grind corn into grits, meal, and flour. A hundred years ago, these mills were bustling community hubs that often operated on barter and usually hid a moonshine still somewhere on the property.

But by my childhood in the 1980s, the farmers and housewives of Deep Run had been turned on to the joys of one-stop shopping at the Piggly Wiggly. The mill still made grits, but it was no longer a center of commerce. My family's kitchen, like many others, had begun to straddle the growing space between tradition and convenience, with one of Mom's feet planted in an old cast-iron skillet of cornbread and the other in a box of Bisquick.

--Vivian Howard, Deep Run Roots: Recipes from My Corner of the South (Little, Brown 2016) 9780316381109

The Drone Eats with Me

All the intimacy and power that Anne Frank's war diary gave us--the real breath and thoughts and fears of a human living under inhumane circumstances--are aged and magnified in Saif's account of war in Gaza.

For 51 days he and his fellow Gazans live--and die--with the knowledge that life and death are a game of luck, controlled at the hands of an Israeli drone operator. Peace is not permitted for the people of Gaza, restricted by birth to a nation of contested land and continued acts of terror, violence, and grief. This was sixty years of life savings!- a man screams atop the rubble of his home. Ambulances screech all day long, gathering body parts of children and families that moments ago were survivors of the war, and now are its casualties.

Saif and his friends flip a coin on the street--heads, the truce ends, tails, the truce continues. The children fight to plug in their iPads when the electricity comes on, while the adults watch the news to hear which of their friends has been obliterated in their homes this week.

This is the fourth war Saif has lived through, and he knows that it is only by luck that he has lived, and that this war will not be the last--that one day his luck may run out. This is an essential read for those in search of peace in the midst of modern-day warfare, and even more essential for those who aren't sure which side they stand on.

The Drone Eats with Me by Atef Abu Saif (Beacon Press) Recommended by Clara at Acappella Books Atlanta GA


Teacup by Rebecca Young, Matt Ottley

Teacup is a lyrical tale of a refugee's journey, evoking the loneliness, anxiety, and sadness of leaving everything you know behind to begin anew. Ottley's textured, breathtaking illustrations are both incredibly realistic and beautifully dreamlike, adding gentleness and whimsy to this subtly told story. Young's minimal text allows the reader's imagination to expand and the drama unfolds at a perfect pace. Teacup is a book to linger over, appreciating the beauty to be found in the persistence and strength it takes to make a new life in an unfamiliar place.

Teacup by Rebecca Young, Matt Ottley (Dial Books for Young Readers, $17.99), recommended by Helen at the Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.


Penguin Problems by Jory John, Lane Smith (Illus.)

Some problems are serious, some are silly, and some, well, some are just penguin problems. When the water is too salty, when the sea is too dark, when you are a bird that cannot fly, and when everyone you know looks exactly the same, well, those are penguin problems. This fun picture book is sure to make even the grumpiest young reader giggle!

Penguin Problems by Jory John, Lane Smith (Random House Books for Young Readers, $17.99), recommended by Angie at The Country Bookshop, Southern Pines, NC.

Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History by John Dickerson

I obsessively checked out campaign coverage this election season, and it was a relief to examine turning points in past presidential campaigns and already know how everything turned out.

Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History by John Dickerson, (Twelve, $30.00), recommended by Niki at Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN.

Serafina and the Twisted Staff

Serafina and the Twisted StaffSerafina's defeat of the Man in the Black Cloak has brought her out of the shadows and into the daylight realm of her home, Biltmore Estate. Every night she visits her mother in the forest, eager to learn the ways of the cat amount. But Serafina finds herself caught between her two worlds: she's too wild for Biltmore's beautifully dressed ladies and formal customs, and too human to fully join her kin. Late one night, Serafina encounters a strange and terrifying figure in the forest, and is attacked by the vicious wolfhounds that seem to be under his control. Even worse, she's convinced that the stranger was not alone, that he has sent his accomplice into Biltmore in disguise. Someone is wreaking havoc at the estate. A mysterious series of attacks test Serafina's role as Biltmore's protector, culminating in a tragedy that tears Serafina's best friend and only ally, Braeden Vanderbilt, from her side. Heartbroken, she flees. Deep in the forest, Serafina comes face-to-face with the evil infecting Biltmore-and discovers its reach is far greater than she'd ever imagined. All the humans and creatures of the Blue Ridge Mountains are in terrible danger. For Serafina to defeat this new evil before it engulfs her beloved home, she must search deep inside herself and embrace the destiny that has always awaited her.

Okra Picks: Two By Two

Hungry is a Mighty Fine Sauce#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards.

At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear. . .and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding-one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.

The List: Tubby & Coo's Audiobook Playlist

If it weren't for audiobooks to listen to, her ladyship, the editor, might never clean her house. A nice suspenseful story will carry her through the most tedious of house cleaning jobs. The audiobook site allows downloads from many indie booksellers, and stores often post "playlists" in the same way they might put up a "staff picks" section in their shop.
