{On the joys of growing up like Huck Finn.}

In which Mr. Shane Gottwals is proclaimed a rock star (or at least, his bookstore is), Mr. Tim Dorsey says he grew up like Huck Finn, and Ms. Elizabeth Kostova writes a book because she had a bad dream.

Gods of Howl MountainThe book at the top of her ladyship's stack this week is Taylor Brown's The Gods of Howl Mountain -- so hot off the press her ladyship thinks the ink might have smudged a bit when she turned the first few pages.

It is a book that has many of her ladyship's favorite things in a novel -- historical settings, medicine women, moonshine. 

This last is something of an oddity, since her ladyship, the editor, being the lightest of lightweights, rarely drink. The hard liquor in her cabinet is almost entirely used for cooking -- she has a fondness for the taste of whiskey, but not the after effects. But she has been by turns fascinated and appalled by the history and culture of moonshine ever since she read Alec Wilkinson's short account of tagging alongside a North Carolina Revenue agent back in the 80s. 

Her ladyship, the editor's literary moonshine stash:

The Wettest County in the WorldChasing the White DogTe Tilted WorldMoonshine
FinnDriving with the DevilThe Feud

Her ladyship, the editor, promises that none of them will make their readers go blind.


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.

Gods of Howl MountainThe machine started at dusk, headlights slashing their way down the old switchbacks that ribbed the mountain's slopes, thunder and echo of thunder vaulting through the ridges and hollers on every side. The road sawed down out of the high country, angling against valleys welled with darkness, past ridges hewn by dynamite, at times following the pale sinews of logging roads that lashed these hills half a century
before. It poured ever east, the motor thrumming long miles
through the darkening country of the foothills, the machine leaving in its wake a ghost of dust that settled on mailboxes and ranging cattle and tobacco fields already reaped. The road fell and fell again, surrendering to the speed of the machine, the fire of the engine, while stars wheeled out over the land.

The long bends unwound before the car's nose, the roadside produce stands and billboards and barns big enough to hide the cars of badged men. The road crested a rise and the land lay nearly naked against the sky, vast and blue. The ragged lights of the mill town burned in the distance, borne up on the swells of the Piedmont. The town of Gumtree. Soon the road was humming, paved, plunging through great stands of hardwoods. The mills rose long and hulking on their bluff over the town, pouring black smoke from their many Howl Mountain, North Carolina stacks, like ocean liners on a sea of earth. Window after window brightly lit, as if people were having fun in there, a party or a ball. Men and women came down out of the mountains to toil all hours in the heat of those lint-blown rooms, making socks and hose. Second shift ended at ten o'clock. The workers would emerge coughing and white-dusted
from those brick bowels like ghost-people, ready for a nip of the hot.

--Taylor Brown, The Gods of Howl Mountain (St. Martin's Press, 2018) 9781250111777

Gods of Howl Mountain by Taylor Brown
To read the work of Taylor Brown is to be given the capacity to enter any world his writing fearlessly creates. He is a wellspring of lyrical beauty.

Gods of Howl Mountain carried me deep into the mountains of NC, post-Korean War, where moonshine ran like it sprang from the earth, where the embryonic seeds for NASCAR were being sown by moonshine runners in souped up cars, and where the people took care of their own, whether by home remedies gifted from the mountains or by brutality and revenge.

The characters are unforgettable and remained with me long after closing the book. They are toughened by life, hopeful, and endearing—survivors all. Brown was able to brilliantly infuse humor and light into this gritty tale. Rory Docherty has returned from the war, leaving a leg in exchange for the horrors he can't forget. His beautiful mother is a resident at Dorothea Dix Hospital, muted by a heinous act of violence, leaving Rory to be raised the inimitable Granny May. This diminutive force is his maternal grandmother; former prostitute turned healer, drawing from the folk knowledge that the mountains take care of their own. Rory's livelihood options are limited, so he turns to running moonshine, chased by revenuers, lawmen, competing runners, and his own demons. There are questions from the past to be answered, grudges to bear, and redemption to be found.

I lifted my head from this extraordinary novel in the wee hours of the morning, stunned by the time passed and grateful for the opportunity to read such a literary gift. A vision from the novel that haunts me is that of a lone surviving chestnut tree in front of Granny May's cabin, branches filled with empty bottles to capture evil spirits and protect the home. The mountains are filled with spirits, good and evil. Gods of Howl Mountaincaptures those spirits like that lone bottle tree within its pages.

Gods of Howl Mountain by Taylor Brown ($26.99*, St. Martin's Press), recommended by The Country Bookshop, Southern Pines, NC.

 A Winter 2018 Okra Pick

Anatomy of a Miracle by Jonathan Miles
This is an extraordinary tale of a paralyzed veteran who is gifted (or cursed) with a miracle, the storm that surrounds him in the aftermath, and the meaning of faith. This book has ruined me. It was so good I didn't want to read anything else. I was in a funk for days after finishing it knowing that nothing else would measure up. I laughed until I cried. Then I wept with sorrow until I couldn't read the pages. I fell in love with every busted up character in this book and the town of Biloxi, Mississippi. This is a loving portrait of present day America: imperfect, ridiculous, dangerous, yet still inspiring. I don't know what I have to do to get you to read this book, but I ain't too proud to beg. 

Anatomy of a Miracle by Jonathan Miles ($27.00*, Hogarth Press), recommended by Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA.

The Sparsholt Affair by Alan Hollinghurst
The Sparsholt Affair is a novel about time and memory. As you read each section, you see how time has changed England and these characters. Hollinghurst is so good at moments, I found myself slowing down so I wouldn't miss anything. Somehow, he's attuned to the frequencies of human interaction invisible to most writers. Such a pleasure to read.

The Sparsholt Affair by Alan Hollinghurst ($28.95*, Knopf Publishing Group), recommended by Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.



I Found My Tribe by Ruth FitzmauriceOh my! Such lovely poetic writing that detail such difficult times! Ruth is surviving in a household of chaos and illness and she paints the reality of an extremely painful situation as her husband, Simon, suffers from ALS and is immobile. Although she lives with caregivers who are in her house constantly and 5 children who have had to deal with a Dadda who can't play with them, she has managed to find meaning and love in her life full of sadness and loss. This she does because she has many friends who love her and children who bring her joy. It is an amazing memoir! I loved her rambling style of writing which is so reflective of her chaotic life but so expressive! That she finds joy in the midst of her suffering makes me grateful for all that I have. A must read!

I Found My Tribe by Ruth Fitzmaurice ($25.00*, Bloomsbury USA), recommended by Page & Palette, Fairhope, AL.

The Okra Pick(s) of the Week

"To read the work of Taylor Brown is to be given the capacity to enter any world his writing fearlessly creates. He is a wellspring of lyrical beauty." - The Country Bookshop, Southern Pines, NC

Gods of Howl Mountain


The third novel by the acclaimed author of The River of Kings and Fallen Land.

Set in the high country of 1950s North Carolina, Gods of Howl Mountain is a dark and compelling novel of family secrets, whiskey-running, vengeance, and love.

Maybelline Docherty, "Granny May," is a folk healer with a dark past. She concocts potions and cures for the people of the mountains—her powers rumored to rival those of a wood witch—while watching over her grandson, Rory Docherty, who has returned from the Korean War with a wooden leg and nightmares of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir. Rory runs bootleg whiskey in a high-powered car to roadhouses, brothels, and private clients in the mill town at the foot of the mountains—a hotbed of violence, moonshine, and the burgeoning sport of stock-car racing.

Granny May must help her grandson battle rival runners and federal revenue agents, snake-handling pastors, and the mystery of his own haunted past: namely, the real story behind his mother's long confinement in a mental hospital, during which she has remained completely silent.

With gritty and atmospheric prose, Taylor Brown brings to life a perilous mountain and the family who rules it, tying together past and present in one captivating narrative.
