{The lady of a thousand voices.}

In which her ladyship, the editor, discovers the hazards of moving furniture, Mr. William Faulkner likes a book by Mr. Ernest Hemingway, and there is a lady who has a thousand voices.

July 13, 2014

Dear readers,

Has this ever happened to you? Last week her ladyship, the editor, was forced to move a bookcase to make room for someone far more talented than herself to come and fix her back door, which had not settled at the same rate as the rest of the house, and was not hanging true or swinging completely shut.

Having moved the bookcase out of the way (which entailed removing all the books, which necessitated dusting all the books since they had not been dusted since they were first shelved oh so many years ago), her ladyship was struck by the notion that the bookcase would look better on the other side of the room.

Unfortunately, there was already a bookcase on the other side of the room.

So her ladyship decided to move that bookcase to a different spot...which required moving yet another bookcase, and so on. By the end of the evening she had relocated three bookcases, one cabinet, and one desk, and removed, dusted, and reshelved every book in them.

This morning she is very tired and her arms hurt. But on the bright side, there is now, magically, space for two more bookcases in the room. She is not sure how that happened, and she is leaving the space open for now. But you know what they say about nature and a vacuum.

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.

DollbabyThere are times you wish you could change things, take things back, pretend they never existed. This was one of those times, Ibby Bell was thinking as she stared bug-eyed out the car window. Amid the double- galleried homes and brightly painted cottages on Prytania Street, there was one house that didn’t belong.

“Ibby?” Her mother turned down the radio and began drumming her fingers on the steering wheel.

Ibby ignored her, letting her mother’s words mingle with the buzz of the air conditioning and the drone of the idling car engine as she craned her neck, trying to get a better look at the house that was stubbornly obscured by the sprawling branches of a giant oak tree and the glare of the midmorning sun. She cupped her hands over her eyes and glanced up to find a weathervane shaped like a racehorse jutting high above the tallest branches of the tree. It was flapping to and fro in the tepid air, unable to quite make the total spin around the rusted stake, giving the poor horse the appearance of being tethered there against its will.

I know that feeling, Ibby thought.

Book & Author Gossip

Faulkner reviews The Old Man and the Sea

The Old Man and the SeaWhen Breit asked Faulkner to write a review of Hemingway’s 1952 novella The Old Man and the Sea, he refused. Yet when a couple months later he got the same request from Washington and Lee University’s literary journal, Shenandoah, Faulkner relented, giving guarded praise to the novel in a one paragraph-long review:

His best. Time may show it to be the best single piece of any of us, I mean his and my contemporaries. This time, he discovered God, a Creator.

Lady of 1,000 Voices

Hers is the voice you hear on the audiobook edition of Sue Monk Kidd's "The Secret Life of Bees." She narrated several of the early "Miss Julia" books by Ann B. Ross as well as "The Little Friend" by Donna Tartt. She's narrated novels by Belva Plain, Michael Connelly, Harlen Coben, Brad Meltzer and Mercedes Lackey, as well as non-fiction books by Susan Orlean and Naomi Wolf.

Fire Shut Up in My Bones

Fire Shut Up in My BonesCharles M. Blow, 43, is a New York Times columnist and CNN commentator, a man who moves in powerful circles that help shape national opinions. He writes boldly — and sometimes controversially —about politics and social issues. That same boldness shines through in his upcoming memoir but this time in an intensely personal way, a story of growing up in small-town Louisiana, with details of a childhood marked by poverty, racism and sexual abuse — and a determination to find his place in the world. 

Freaks of a Feather: Flannery O'Connor tribute

Flannery O’Connor could be as proud as a peacock about The Meanest of Them Sparkled, a show in her honor at Thunder-Sky, Inc.  O’Connor, the Southern writer who died of lupus 50 years ago this summer at age 39, kept peacocks at her Georgia farm — and the birds appeared in her stories, too. They also populate this exhibit, which features more than 20 artists.

Gottwals Books, Mayor, storytime to support literacy

Mayor Randy Toms of Warner Robins decided to read to some kids Wednesday, but he wanted to extend reading far past the pages of a book. The owners of Gottwals Books say they invited the mayor in hopes of using his influence to increase literacy among kids, and the mayor believes that is his responsibility. "Children are watching us, so it's more than just doing what's right for the community, but you're possibly affecting the lives of children," says Toms.

Portrait of a Dead GuyPortrait of a Dead Guy 

In Halo, Georgia, folks know Cherry Tucker as big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than buckshot rips from a ten gauge — but commissions are scarce. So when the well-heeled Branson family wants to memorialize their murdered son in a coffin portrait, Cherry scrambles to win their patronage from her small town rival. As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject. Between ex-boyfriends, her flaky family, an illegal gambling ring, and outwitting a killer on a spree, Cherry finds herself painted into a corner she’ll be lucky to survive.

Lady Banks {Book} Trailer Park


A History of the World in Six Glasses

From beer to Coca-Cola, the six drinks that have helped shape human history

Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period.

A History of the World in 6 GlassesA History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola. Beer was first made in the Fertile Crescent and by 3000 B.C.E. was so important to Mesopotamia and Egypt that it was used to pay wages. In ancient Greece wine became the main export of her vast seaborne trade, helping spread Greek culture abroad. Spirits such as brandy and rum fueled the Age of Exploration, fortifying seamen on long voyages and oiling the pernicious slave trade. Although coffee originated in the Arab world, it stoked revolutionary thought in Europe during the Age of Reason, when coffeehouses became centers of intellectual exchange. And hundreds of years after the Chinese began drinking tea, it became especially popular in Britain, with far-reaching effects on British foreign policy. Finally, though carbonated drinks were invented in 18th-century Europe they became a 20th-century phenomenon, and Coca-Cola in particular is the leading symbol of globalization.

For Tom Standage, each drink is a kind of technology, a catalyst for advancing culture by which he demonstrates the intricate interplay of different civilizations. You may never look at your favorite drink the same way again.

From the Okra Picks

The Girls of August 
by Anne Rivers Siddons
9780446527958 | Grand Central Publishing | 07/08/2014

The Girls of August"One doesn't read Anne Rivers Siddons's books, one dwells in them."—Chicago Tribune

Every August, four women would gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year. The ritual began when they were in their twenties and their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. Their only criteria was oceanfront and isolation, their only desire to strengthen their far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the Girls dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt. Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they decide to come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast. There, far from civilization, the women make startling discoveries that will change them in ways they never expected.

Counting by Sevens 7s by Holly Goldberg SloanCounting by Sevens 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan

"I loved this book but will recommend it to middle grade readers with consciousness. It's not for everyone. The protagonist is brilliant and loses both of her (adopted) parents in a tragic car wreck. Written from multiple perspectives with lots of foresight into human vulnerability. I was spellbound. Great, sophisticated read for mature middle grade readers." - Rachel, events & PR 9780803738553
