Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book

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

A Second BloomingThe Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary was founded in 1971 when Ralph Heath, a newly graduated premed zoology student on his way to do some Christmas shopping, brought home a cormorant he'd found dragging a broken wing on the side of Gulf Boulevard. At the time, Ralph was living with his wife Linda, and his parents in his robin's-egg-colored childhood home, which later became, and remains, the sanctuary office. With the help of a local veterinarian, Ralph and his father nursed the bird back to health, named it Maynard, and let it live in their front yard. Soon after, a local bait fisherman caught wind of their success and brought them an injured gull. Then the postman left a bird on their doorstep. Then birds began arriving outside their front door every day.

--Sarah Gerard, from "Sunshine State" in Sunshine State: Essays, (Harper Perennial, 2017)

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers

The Cruelty by Scott Bergstrom

Seventeen year old Gwen's father has disappeared. She refuses to accept that he just abandoned her while on a diplomatic assignment. She uses a "certain set of skills" gained by her father's resources to track him to the underbelly of Europe. Think Taken, except the bad-ass daughter has to save her father. Full of action and excitement.

The Cruelty by Scott Bergstrom ($18.99, Feiwel & Friends), recommended by Mary, The Country Bookshop, Southern Pines, NC.


In the Great Green Room: The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown by Amy Gary

Margaret Wise Brown left this earth far too soon, but in the little time she was here, she created a mind-blowing amount of children's books that captured, "with a sense of awe and wonder," the magic of childhood. Gary's pitch-perfect account of Brown's life is filled with her subject's whimsy and zest for life, and it reveals the many hurdles Brown faced in trying to go against the grain in her work life and love life. Chapter by chapter, Gary builds a loving portrait of a woman whose childlike view of the world lent her an extraordinary gift in writing for children and who battled turmoil within and without despite her playful, witty exterior. This book is proof of Margaret Wise Brown's "radiant living that was lived among us."

In the Great Green Room: The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown by Amy Gary ($26.99, Flatiron Books), recommended by Hannah, Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.

The Moon and the Other by John Kessel

In his new novel, The Moon and the Other, set in the near future on the moon, John Kessel again demonstrates his visionary and compassionate eye. Through a lens of gender roles as they play out in the political clash of a matriarchy--The Society of Cousins--and a patriarchy--Persepolis--and in the lives of several of their citizens, Kessel explores human desire, expectation, emotion and alienation. Pointedly, too, he gives keen insights into how technology and coercion, in one form or another, affect our existence.

The Moon and the Other ($27.99. Saga), recommended by Ken, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC.

Born to Run (audio book) by Bruce Springsteen

If you have listened to Springsteen’s music over the years, you know this man has a way with words. His memoir proves that this is also true on the printed page. But if you find that you miss his voice, don’t worry: he reads the audio.

Born to Run (audio book) by Bruce Springsteen ($29.99, Simon & Schuster Audio), recommended by Karen, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN.




The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by Dubose Heyward; Marjorie Flack

Erica at Lemuria Books encourages readers to rediscover DuBose Heyward's (author of Porgy, the inspiration of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess) iconic children's book The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. First published in 1939, and filled with Marjorie Flack's charming illustrations, this Easter classic is worth visiting all year long. "I’ve recently gone back and reread it and I was shocked by its deeper meaning, and how wonderfully it is crafted for both children and parents," writes Erica. Read more on Lemuria's blog.

The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by DuBose Heyward and Marjorie Flack ($7.99, Houghton Mifflin), recommended by Erica, Lemuria Books, Jackson, MS.

Okra Picks

Sunshine State: Essays by Sarah Gerard

The Sunshine State: Essays by Sarah GerardA Chicago Tribune Exciting Book for 2017 • A Buzzfeed Most Exciting Book for 2017 • A The Millions Great 2017 Preview Pick• A Huffington Post 2017 Preview Pick • A PW Spring 2017 Top 10 Pick in Essays & Literary Criticism

"Brave, keenly observational, and humanitarian…. Gerard's collection leaves an indelible impression." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"These large-hearted, meticulous essays offer an uncanny x-ray of our national psyche... showing us both the grand beauty of our American dreams and the heartbreaking devastation they wreak." -- Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You

Sarah Gerard follows her breakout novel, Binary Star, with the dynamic essay collection Sunshine State, which explores Florida as a microcosm of the most pressing economic and environmental perils haunting our society.

In the collection's title essay, Gerard volunteers at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, a world renowned bird refuge. There she meets its founder, who once modeled with a pelican on his arm for a Dewar's Scotch campaign but has since declined into a pit of fraud and madness. He becomes our embezzling protagonist whose tales about the birds he "rescues" never quite add up. Gerard's personal stories are no less eerie or poignant: An essay that begins as a look at Gerard's first relationship becomes a heart-wrenching exploration of acquaintance rape and consent. An account of intimate female friendship pivots midway through, morphing into a meditation on jealousy and class.

With the personal insight of The Empathy Exams, the societal exposal of Nickel and Dimed, and the stylistic innovation and intensity of her own break-out debut novel Binary Star, Sarah Gerard's Sunshine State uses the intimately personal to unearth the deep reservoirs of humanity buried in the corners of our world often hardest to face.
