{On the relative importance of biscuits, piecrusts, and roux.}

In which Mr. Faulkner’s trunk goes a-traveling, Mr. William Ferris tests the limits of a friendship, Mr. Wiley Cash wants you to buy a book (besides his own) and her ladyship, the editor, cheats at making biscuits.

August 26, 2013



Dearest Readers,

Her ladyship, the editor is planning a trip to New Orleans next month to attend the annual fall trade show of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance.  In preparation, she decided to revisit some of the books on her shelves set in the Big Easy.

Unfortunately, she started with her cookbooks.  A week and a half later, she is still stuck in the kitchen, and she is running out of cornmeal and flour. Because when it comes right down to it, the ability to make a roux is possibly more important than the ability to make a decent pie crust. But perhaps not quite as important as the ability to make good biscuits.

The New Orleans Cook’s shelf:

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

The Storied SouthTesting the limits of a friendship

I first read Welty’s work at Brooks School, and in my senior year at Davidson College, I invited her to be our book- of- the- year speaker. Much to the amazement of our faculty in the English Department, she accepted. I borrowed a school car and met her when she arrived by train one evening at the Charlotte depot. The next morning she read “A Worn Path” before the student assembly in her soft voice, and during the afternoon we walked around the campus where wisteria vines were in full bloom. At the end of the day, Welty’s old friend Reynolds Price drove up in a white linen suit and dramatically escorted her away to give a reading at Duke University.

Four years later I was working in the folklore collections at the Mississippi State Archives when Charlotte Capers, the director, showed me unpublished photographs that Welty had taken for the Works Progress Administration. In these photographs Welty captured the faces and landscapes of Mississippi with a power and honesty that became a standard for my research as a folklorist.
During the summer of 1975 I visited Welty at her home on Pinehurst Street, and we spoke about those photographs and her writing. Over the years that followed, I visited her regularly and recorded other interviews, film, and videotape with her.

Each time we visited, I brought a large bottle of Maker’s Mark that we opened and shared together. Welty’s wit was always unexpected and refreshingly on point. One day I phoned her and asked, “Eudora, I wondered if we might get together on Saturday.”

She replied, “That would be fine. What time would suit you?”

“Would ten thirty be all right?”

“Did you say seven thirty?”

“No. Ten thirty.”

“Oh, good. For a moment there I thought you were testing our friendship.”

Lady Banks' Receipt Book


The books lying open on her ladyship's kitchen counter.

The Picayune Creole's Cook BookHoecakes
Hoecakes made  at the “Big House”:
2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon yeast
2 tablespoons lard

Mix ingredients well and knead. Roll out with rolling pin, cut  criss-cross, like diamonds, with a knife and bake in oven.
Hoecakes made in the “Cabin”
1 teaspoon lard
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
Boiling water sufficient to make a batter
“These cakes may be baked on a griddle, just as you would a griddle cake, and served with butter. But the old Southern cooks always baked them on a hoe on hot coals in front of a wood fire, out in the open aair, just before their cabin doors, or in their cabin before the roaring fire. Hence the name hoecake. The term hoecake, so extensively used by the field hands, was taken up by masters and mistresses and applied to the biscuit bread as described above.”

Country wisdom from practical people.

Country Almanac of Home RemediesIrish headache cure

An Irish folk remedy for curing headaches is to loosely tie a bandanna around the head and slip slices of raw potato beetween the head and the bandanna. Place the potatoes where the pain is, over the temples or eyes. Lie down in a quiet room. After an hour, the potato slices should be warm and the headache relieved. Slices of apples or peeled aloe vera can be used in place of the potatoes.

Book Gossip

Literary News & Gossip passed along from the readers, the writers, the reviewers, the resellers, the riff raff, and dutifully repeated here by her ladyship (who falls into the last category).

wolf WhistleThe next meeting of the Let’s Talk About It book discussion group will be 4-6 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium of the Haywood County Library, 678 S. Haywood St. Refreshments will be served.  The subject will be “Wolf Whistle” by Lewis Nordan, and the discussion will be led by UNC Asheville faculty member Merritt Mosely. Admission is free to all. The novel was inspired by the 1956 murder of Emmett Till, a young African-American man killed for wolf whistling at a white woman. The two white men responsible were tried and acquitted in a Mississippi town near the author’s boyhood home. Haywood County Read: Wolf Whistle 9781565121102

New literary journal China Grove launches August 28, and will feature a previously unseen letter from Mark Twain regarding an unpublished work called “The Great Republic’s Peanut Stand." The journal will also feature an exclusive interview with Ellen Gilchrist, and a love letter from Pulitzer Prize winner Eudora Welty to crime fiction writer Kenneth Millar. The journal's name comes from the Eudora Welty short story, “Why I Live at the P. O.” China Grove

The ReturnedThere’s something to be said for reinventing the wheel, or so the publication of “The Returned,’’ the much-talked about first novel by North Carolina writer Jason Mott, would suggest. Without any sort of apocalyptic events to herald them, the dead begin to show up around the world and create an atmosphere that morphs from wonder to dismay and joy-tinged sorrow and sorrowful joy to amazement, causing disruption through many layers of society from political to military to religious as well as making for rifts in the fabric of family and personal relations. If you read this description without Mott’s name attached to it you would say: Ah, a newly found novel by the late Portuguese Nobel laureate José Saramago. The Returned 9780778315339

The 8th annual Decatur Book Festival returns Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, with a horde of authors, art, children’s activities and more.  The festival kicks off Friday night with a keynote address by Congressman John Lewish, who has co-authored a graphic novel about his life called March. The keynote address will be held at the Schwartz Center on the Emory University campus. Tickets sold out quickly and there is now a waiting list. DBF

As I Lay DyingThe University Museum is offering a new Traveling Trunk based on the life and work of William Faulkner. The William Faulkner/Rowan Oak trunk, eighth in a series of educational trunks available to the schools and other groups, will be unveiled during a presentation Aug. 29 at the museum.  The event, which runs 7-8:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.  This trunk includes classroom sets (35) of two Faulkner short stories, "Barn Burning" and "A Rose for Emily," and is the first trunk designed specifically for high school students. The highlight of the trunk is a 1918 typewriter that is similar to one used by Faulkner. The Faulkner Traveling Trunk

 

The Death of Great SantiniFor the month of August The Gift poetry series will drop inside five literary works. These pieces are radio essays. They do not claim to be definitive or scholarly responses to these great historical texts. Instead, each piece comes out of the emotional and psychological journey taken by the listener, becoming a conversation that resonates with our own inner thoughts. In this week's installment, several people read from William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying. With Carrie Dabelow as Addie, Jerry Bloom as Vernon Tull, Spencer Parsons as Darl, Larry Garner as Anse, and Ryan Heindl as Vardaman. As I Lay Dying, aloud 9780375504525

 

MoonriseAuthors Pat Conroy and Cassandra King will bring their stories along next month in a pair of events designed to raise awareness and funding for the annual Books Alive festival sponsored by the Bay County P ublic Library.  “The whole book tour was something they wis hed to be about a greater good,” said Kathie Bennett of Magic Time Literary Agency, who represents King. “At each city, they’re participating in fundraisers for the betterment of the community, libraries, botanical gardens and so on. In Panama City , it’s for the benefit of Books Alive, the gift of such an event in Panama City every year.” Authors raise awareness for book conference 9780385530903 9781940210001

Lookaway, LookawayBarnhardt introduces us to the Charlotte-based Johnston clan, which claims Confederate Gen. Joseph E. Johnston as an ancestor. In a zany yet ultimately harrowing chapter that will remind some readers of Tom Wolfe's I Am Charlotte Simmons, his book takes aim at the social hierarchy of the UNC fraternities and sororities. But in contrast to Wolfe, who labored to disguise "Durham" and "Duke University" in his mammoth novel, Barnhardt sprinkles real Tar Heel names and places throughout—with one significant exception. Although Charlotte comes in for vivid satirical abuse as a city of banks, churches, strip malls and McMansions, there's no mention of longtime mayor Pat McCrory. "Had I written the book six months later," Barnhardt says, "and not sold the book when I did, I sure I would have hauled off on him!" Lookaway, Lookaway 9781250020833

Bookstore Gossip

A Land More Kind Than HomeBut even before my first novel was released, independent booksellers were making a huge difference in my life, and I imagine that many folks feel the same way. When I lived in Asheville, North Carolina, one of my favorite things to do was to walk down to Malaprop's and get a cup of coffee and browse the shelves, where I spent most of my time in the local section, browsing titles by Ron Rash, Wilma Dykeman, and Tommy Hays. Whenever my wife and I are in her hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, we always stop in and say hello to the folks at Pomegranate Books, where local authors like Clyde Edgerton and Rebecca Lee are staff favorites. Stores like these can diagnose your reading life and prescribe just the book (or books!) to keep it thriving. Over the past several years, the best books I've read can be traced directly back to a hand-sell at an independent bookstore.   Indie bookstores have done more for me than sell my novel; they've given me a community. Wiley Cash on Indie Bookstores

The Cafe at Books & Books has long been a Lincoln Road fixture. In a sea of cafes with colorful umbrellas offering overpriced and underwhelming food for unaware tourists, Books & Books served up honest, delicious meals at reasonable prices. Plus, if you forgot reading material, a good story (and fantastic people watching) was always within arm's reach. Café Books & Books

Chapel Hill’s Flyleaf Books asked people of all ages to spell words like “bazaar,” “Afrikaans,” and “extemporaneous” Friday in its first-ever Adult Spelling Bee, co-hosted with UNC’s Program in the Humanities. The event sought to playfully test the public’s orthography skills in a semi-scholastic setting.  “We like to put on programs that bring scholarship out into the community,” said Max Owre, associate director of the Program in the Humanities.

The Island Book Shop’s owner, Jenny Hamm, has been busy adding new sections to the store. She has added a used Christian fiction section, the Love Bucket which is a $2 romance book bin and has expanded the children’s section and added new coloring and activity books. She has also expanded the mystery and nonfiction sections and has updated the cookbook section. Island Book Shop

The fall lineup for the Nashville Public Library’s Salon@615 author talk series is another “wow” list for book lovers, with authors including Garrison Keillor, Elizabeth Gilbert, Wally Lamb, Pat Conroy, Ann Patchett and Amy Tan scheduled to take part.  The popular free series, which began in 2011, has brought power authors such as Caroline Kennedy, Colin Powell and Barbara Kingsolver to the stage for readings and question-and-answer sessions with audiences, typically drawing anywhere from 100 to as many as 700 people.  The series is the handiwork of a thriving partnership of the Nashville Public Library, Parnassus Books, the Nashville Public Library Foundation and Humanities Tennessee.

Read This! Okra Picks and recommendations for The Regulator Book Shop, Alabama Booksmith, and Indie Next


Okra Picks

The Storied SouthThe Storied South features the voices--by turn searching and honest, coy and scathing--of twenty-six of the most luminous artists and thinkers in the American cultural firmament, from Eudora Welty, Pete Seeger, and Alice Walker to William Eggleston, Bobby Rush, and C. Vann Woodward. Masterfully drawn from one-on-one interviews conducted by renowned folklorist William Ferris over the past forty years, the book reveals how storytelling is viscerally tied to southern identity and how the work of these southern or southern-inspired creators has shaped the way Americans think and talk about the South.

The Storied South offers a unique, intimate opportunity to sit at the table with these men and women and learn how they worked and how they perceived their art. The volume also features 45 of Ferris's striking photographic portraits of the speakers and a CD and a DVD of original audio and films of the interviews.

Indie Bookseller Recommendations:

The Good Lord BirdThis week's book prompted a brief dispute between my mother and myself about the lyrics to John Brown's Body, wherein I had to convince her that a word was "moldering" and not "smoldering", because it makes absolutely no sense for a body in the grave to be on fire.  Yes, I have a severely warped sense of humor.

However, that trait (or flaw) works out quite nicely, as a warped sense of humor dominates The Good Lord Bird by James McBride.  It's an account of John Brown's exploits from the Pottawatomie Massacre and Bleeding Kansas in 1856 to the infamous raid on Harper's Ferry in October of 1859, as seen through the eyes of Henry Shackleford, a young slave rescued and "freed" by Brown in a tavern brawl.  Henry, newly christened "Little Onion" by Brown, then accompanies Brown and his followers as a combination mascot and good luck charm.  In the process, he is blessed (or cursed) with an up-close-and-personal look at some of the most volatile and significant events and figures leading up to the Civil War.

Oh, and everyone thinks he's a girl.

--Paige from The Alabama Booksmith on The Good Lord Bird 9781594486340



Let the Great World SpinWhy I Like Colum McCann’s Writing
Tom Campbell, Regulator Bookshop in Durham, NC

I’ve admired Colum McCann’s writing since I first read This Side of Brightness more than 15 years ago, and my admiration has grown enormously with the publication of his last two novels, Let The Great World Spin in 2009 and Transatlantic which came out just last month. McCann’s storytelling is masterful, and his books are deep and realistic without being at all depressing.

I found a clue as to why I like McCann’s writing so much in an article about him that appeared in the New York Times Magazine in early June. McCann was invited to talk to high school students at Newton High School, just up the road from Sandy Hook Elementary School, the site of the horrible shootings last December. Many of the Newton High students had ties to the 20 children and 6 adults who were killed at Sandy Hook, and a Newton High teacher had asked his classes to read Let The Great World Spin to help them deal with what they had gone through.  Read on 9780812973990

(Pamela Dorman Books / Viking, 9780670026616, $27.95)
“In France, Sophie LeFevre’s husband was sent off to fight in World War I, leaving her with only a portrait that he had painted of her. Ninety years later that portrait, titled The Girl You Left Behind, hangs in Liv Halston’s house, a wedding gift from her late husband. When descendants of the artist claim ownership of the painting and demand restitution, Liv’s life becomes a battle, both legal and emotional. Liv fights to keep Sophie’s portrait and to learn everything she can about her, as she believes that knowledge can help her figure out where her own life is going.” —Melissa Oates, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC
