{Worthy companions on the bittersweet journey that is life.}

In which Mr. William Faulkner's airplane is deemed 'not reliable,' Mr. George Singleton revenges himself on his copyeditor, not even a tacky hat can save a woman's reputation, Ms. Cassandra King offers some excellent advice, and Mr. Rick Bragg notes with scorn that gentlemen don't carry jumper cables.

May 4, 2014

Dear readers,

In her newly published book, The Same Sweet Girls' Guide to Life, Ms. Cassandra King, a self-professed "failed Southern belle" offers this piece of advice: Become a lifelong reader.

She is preaching to the choir, for her ladyship, the editor's own readers are an avid and passionately literary lot. But her ladyship found Ms. King's defense of a reading life resonating deeply within her. "Books are most worthy companions to take with us on this bittersweet journey known as life," notes Ms. King. And indeed, this is true. There are books that her ladyship has carried with her (in her mind, in her soul, and frequently in her overly-bulging pocketbook or suitcase) all her life and they have indeed been "companions" -- touchstones of meaning and importance along this journey of living.

Jane Eyre, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Sula, And Quiet Flows the Don....all books that her ladyship returns to, frequently. All books that seem to have something to say to her, no matter what strange crisis or predicament she finds herself in.

And you, dear readers? What bookish companions do you take on your "bittersweet journey through life"?

Read independently...and shop local!


her ladyship, the editor


Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Same Sweet Girls Guide to LifeYou don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”  Ray Bradbury

Cultivate an appreciation and passion for books. I’m using passion in the fullest sense of the word: a deep, fervent emotion; a state of intense desire; an enthusiastic ardor for something or someone.

When my eldest son was seven months old, I gave him his first book. Instead of one of those cloth or plastic deals made for babies, the book was a beautifully illustrated and expensive edition of Beatrice Potter’s Tales of Peter Rabbit. As a young, inexperienced mother, I was sure my son was a genius. Pointing to a lamp, he’d said his first word, “light,” convincing me he was ready to read. I sat him down next to me and placed the Peter Rabbit book in his hands. Curious, he examined it front and back before opening it and patting the pictures. Then, looking at me for approval, he raised the book to his mouth and began to eat the pages.

It was an impulse I understood completely. There are some books I love so much that I would devour them if I could. For me, reading has always been a sensual experience. I lust after books. I love everything about them: how they look, how they feel, and how they smell. I love the heft of them in my hands. If I really like a book, I’ve been known to embrace it and stroke its cover reverently. I’m sure that’s why folks look at me funny when I’m let loose in a bookstore. My passion is let loose as well.

When I was teaching college freshmen, I had a well-deserved reputation for demanding that my students cultivate a love for reading, and would often march them to the library as though they were kindergarteners.  Some of my students rolled their eyes at such tactics, and even more so at the large sign on my office wall: Those who do not read have no advantage over those who cannot. Subtlety wasn’t one of my strong points as a teacher.

Once you’re out of the classroom, you might vow never to open another book, after being force-fed their contents for so many years. But know this: Books are most worthy companions to take with us on this bittersweet journey known as life. They offer us everything we will need along the way: knowledge, wisdom, insight, guidance, adventure, role models, compelling stories, and great truths that have endured through the ages. Most of all, books let us know that we’re not alone in this world. Others have taken the path we find ourselves on, have stumbled, fallen, and pulled themselves up to journey on. The fears, desires, and sorrows we experience are universal, part of the human condition. Some might say that we lose ourselves in a good book. In truth, we find ourselves.

Book & Author Gossip

Natchez Novelist

Natchez BurningIn 2011, author Greg Iles was just a week away from the deadline for his next novel, a follow-up to the best-seller "The Devil's Punchbowl," when he was involved in a horrific car accident near his hometown of Natchez. "I'll tell you that Mississippi may be last in many things," Iles says, "but the doctors and nurses at the University (of Mississippi) Medical Center are as good as anyone out there. They saved my life." 9780062311078

 

"Not very reliable": Faulkner is considered to write the screenplay to Gone With the Wind

The Unvanquished"Now in Oxford, Miss, but can fly anywhere in his own plane. Not very reliable in his plane nor his habits, but his last collection of Civil War stories, "The Unvanquished" shows what he can do with this sort of background. 9780679736523

Marker will honor Civil Rights activist Harry Golden

Subscribers to the Carolina Israelite, the publication Harry Golden cranked out from his house on Charlotte’s Elizabeth Avenue, once included 20 senators, 40 House members, as well as William Faulkner, Bertrand Russell, Ernest Hemingway and Harry Truman. How come? Because in 1954, Time magazine picked up Golden’s tongue-in-cheek Golden Vertical Plan for ending segregation in the South. The proposal recommended removing all seats from classrooms and lunch counters because, as Golden put it, integrated standing agitated people less than integrated sitting. Four years later, the first of Golden’s 21 books, “Only in America,” became a best-seller.

The Same Sweet Girl's' Guide to Life: Advice from a Failed Southern Bell
by Cassandra King

9781940210032  |  Maiden Lane Press | 05/01/2014

Same Sweet Girls Guide to LifeWritten with a blend of humor and practical wisdom, "The Same Sweet Girl's Guide to Life" by Cassandra King offers inspiration and solid advice to new graduates that can sustain them through life's inevitable ups and downs. In this small book you will find advice that will only grow in meaning throughout the years. It can - and should - be read again and again, by thoughtful people of all ages. 

King's true gift is in her ability to present readers with the sort of hard-earned wisdom that will help both young and old find sustenance and renewed meaning in their lives. 

Her first pearl of wisdom: sincerity is an important virtue, and once you learn to fake it, you are well on your way to success! Dare to laugh at yourself. Find kindred spirits and keep them close to you; expand your circle of friends. Know the true value of time. She also advises that we try to find words to express love and gratitude but to keep in mind that it is our actions that reveal our feelings more than our words. 

And as an addition to this lecture, which was delivered to a graduating class at her alma mater, Montevallo College, King adds a new afterword on the value of becoming a lifelong reader.

A note from Rick Bragg about Cassandra King

Rick BraggI used to worry a good bit about not being a gentleman, at least a gentleman by breeding. The writing business is lousy with gentleman, the way chiggers are prolific in Johnson grass. I was just a Southern man, without a title or an old name, or a passed-down Confederate saber to hang over my mantle. My great-great-great Aunt Minnie Bell never had to run and hide the family silver when she saw the Yankees a comin’. When I go hunting, I do not wear a bow tie, or anything tweed. I do not own a pink cotton button-down. When I go fishing, I do not fish the interior of Mongolia. I fish for the noble bass, in the interior of Mr. Paul Williams’ cow pasture. I do not own a fly rod, but I can drop a spinnerbait or chartreuse plastic worm into a five-gallon bucket from thirty-five yards away. If I fight you, and I can reach one, I will hit you with a tire iron. I look at cleavage; I do not give a damn.

I do not write my stories on an old Underwood, under the magnolia, on my writing porch. As I have often said, you need electricity to do this stuff right, to keep up with the hot mess of thoughts that come screaming out of your ill-born head. Muddy Waters used electricity; I bet he was no gentleman.

My father was not a gentleman, either. He bet on chicken fights and fought men with knives after he came back home from a war where he killed a communist soldier with his bare hands. My grandfathers were not gentlemen. One made good liquor in the trees and fished the Guntersville dam with a crank telephone, and was once given up for dead for about a week when it turned out he was just doing time in  Birmingham. The other drank the liquor the first one made, in five-gallon cans intended for paint thinner, and once fought a man naked. The less said about that, the better.

I guess, by the same standards, our women were not proper ladies. My mother was not a Southern belle. She dragged me on a cotton sack, and went most of her young life without a new dress so I could have more of what was there. My grandmothers had iron in their bones and were still gentle, not genteel. My maternal grandmother beat a city woman half to death for trying to steal her husband, but mostly because the woman washed her silk stockings in her dish pan. Later, she buried a baby daughter in the mountains of north Georgia in a time when the gentlemen of the age considered the working people of the foothills – the laid-off mill workers and miners and cotton pickers – to be of little value. My paternal grandmother worked a twelve-hour shift at the cotton mill, and nursed her babies on a ten-minute break, standing on a concrete slab.

Cassandra KingWe don’t have much use for belles.

We don’t need gentlemen. They don’t even travel with jumper cables.

What we need, is more people like Cassandra King.
