Dearest Readers

The storm has passed, and her ladyship, the editor's house has come through unscathed. She even has power, although her neighbors down the road remain without. And being on high ground, she is safe from the rising waters that are still threatening other homes in other neighborhoods. 

Here the storm's passage is marked by the steadily rising roar of chainsaws as people take down broken trees or cut up fallen branches. But in her own garden, the only sign of the storm's passing are the stripped branches of the fig tree. The winds blew off all the curling leaves. 

With the arrival of the sun, and the cool nights and warm days also came the arrival of the postman, who brought her ladyship, like a gift from the storm, a copy of A Brush with Nature: Abstract Naturalism and the Painting of Life by Alex Beard. The artist, who lives in New Orleans and is inspired by African and Southern Bayou landscapes, had his launch party at Octavia Books last week. Her ladyship had seen a notification of the event, and written the bookshop owners to inquire if any copies would be available after the event. 

Pelicans

A Brush with NatureThen Matthew came calling, and her ladyship forgot all about the exchange until this afternoon, when a box arrived at her doorstep with a signed copy of A Brush with Nature inside.

Alex Beard's swirling paintings are mesmerizing to look at -- her ladyship like the "animalia" pieces and the pen-and-ink work the best. Beard is greatly interested in and concerned with the always-in-motion balance of nature, and works with UNESCO and conservation groups to save the wild places of the Earth, both at home and in farther away places. Some of the proceeds from the sale of his works and his book go towards such causes.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

The Home PlaceMe: An Introduction

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and incur my own abhorrence. --Frederick Douglass, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

I am a man in love with nature. I am an eco-addict, consuming everything that the outdoors offers in its all-you-cansense, seasonal buffet. I am a wildling, born of forests and fields and more comfortable on unpaved back roads and winding woodland paths than in any place where concrete, asphalt, and crowds prevail. In my obsession I “celebrate myself, and sing myself,” living Walt Whitman’s exaltations, rolling and reveling in all that nature lays before me.

I am an ornithologist, wildlife ecologist, and college professor. I am a father, husband, son, and brother. I hope to some I am a friend. I bird. I hunt. I gather. I am a seeker and a noticer. I am a lover. My being finds its foundation in open places.

I’m a man of color— African American by politically correct convention— mostly black by virtue of ancestors who trod ground in central and west Africa before being brought to foreign shores. In me there’s additionally an inkling of Irish, a bit of Brit, a smidgen of Scandinavian, and some American Indian, Asian, and Neanderthal tossed in, too. But that’s only a part of the whole: There is also the red of miry clay, plowed up and planted to pass a legacy forward.

There is the brown of spring floods rushing over a Savannah River shoal. There is the gold of ripening tobacco drying in the heat of summer’s last breath. There are endless rows of cotton’s cloudy white. My plumage is a kaleidoscopic rainbow of an eternal hope and the deepest blue of despair and darkness. All of these hues are me; I am, in the deepest sense, colored.

Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?

If you’ve ever been interested in what your dog or your cat really thinks about your tuxedo t-shirt (or whether they think at all), then Frans de Waal’s new book is a must-read for you.

De Waal is the renowned primatologist and writer of The Bonobo and the Atheist, as well as other essays on morality and intelligence in the animal kingdom. And in this book de Waal argues that certain animal intelligence–though different—is not inferior or superior to others (including us human folk).

De Waal makes it clear that we should examine animals in relation to their own specific traits and capabilities in order to understand their true intelligence, rather than comparing them to the things that we humans excel it.

By trying to get us to embody a point of view outside of our own species', this book will forever change the way we look at animal intelligence and consciousness.

Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? by Frans de Waal, F. B. M. De Waal (W. W. Norton) Recommended by Donovan at Inkwood Books Tampa FL

 

Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, & Better at What You Do

Marine biologist Nichols reveals groundbreaking neuroscience that proves what we intuitively know: We are emotionally, physically and spiritually healthier when we are near or in the water.

He  presents the evidence in terms easily accessible to non-scientists and reminds us that it is imperative that we humans protect the waters of our planet for the good of all of the beings who inhabit it.

Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, & Better at What You Do by Wallace J. Nichols (Little, Brown and Co.) Recommended by Samantha at Quail Ridge Books Raleigh NC

 

The Fourteenth Goldfish

Ellie doesn't like how things have changed in her eleven years of life, the most recent change being that her best friend doesn't seem to be her best friend any more. Then her scientist grandfather shows up under very strange circumstances and shows Ellie a glimpse into the world of science -- Salk, Oppenheimer, Galileo, Newton -- and Ellie has to decide what changes she wants to make and which might not be worth the risk.

A great introduction to science for interested kids, and Ellie will make it even more appealing for girls.

The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm (Dell Yearling) Recommended by Melissa at Fiction AddictionGreenville SC

 

The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman

The Genius of Birds is a splendidly written account of the remarkable ways, many of which are newly discovered, that birds gossip, eavesdrop, exact revenge, manipulate, sympathize, use tools, and communicate in myriad ways.

This smart and entertaining narrative appeals to bird geeks and the commonly curious alike with anecdotes, science, and new insights into what birds know about our frighteningly changing world.

The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman (Penguin) Recommended by Richard at Square Books Oxford MS

 

Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet

An around the world tour of all of the tangible workings behind that seemingly intangible construct known as the internet.

Lots of great information on where and how your news, emails and favorite adorable kitten videos are stored and transmitted to your computer monitor. Great for techies but also great for readers interested in history or just good non-fiction. No computer science degree required.

Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet by Andrew Blum (Ecco Press) Recommended by John at Cavalier House Books Denham Springs LA

Okra Picks: The Home Place


The Home Place“In me, there is the red of miry clay, the brown of spring floods, the gold of ripening tobacco. All of these hues are me; I am, in the deepest sense, colored.”

From these fertile soils of love, land, identity, family, and race emerges The Home Place, a big-hearted, unforgettable memoir by ornithologist and professor of ecology J. Drew Lanham.

Dating back to slavery, Edgefield County, South Carolina—a place “easy to pass by on the way somewhere else”—has been home to generations of Lanhams. In The Home Place, readers meet these extraordinary people, including Drew himself, who over the course of the 1970s falls in love with the natural world around him. As his passion takes flight, however, he begins to ask what it means to be “the rare bird, the oddity.”

By turns angry, funny, elegiac, and heartbreaking, The Home Place is a remarkable meditation on nature and belonging, at once a deeply moving memoir and riveting exploration of the contradictions of black identity in the rural South—and in America today.
