Dearest readers,

You can thank Miss Irene for the delay in sending out this week's bestseller list and Lady Banks newsletter. On the downside, the corn her ladyship's garden has been almost entirely flattened. But on the upside, her ladyship rediscovered the joys of reading by candlelight. It lent Mr. James Still's lovely novel Chinaberry a particularly authentic air.

Happy, happy reading!


her ladyship, the editor

Good 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).

When baskets of eggs appear on the front gate fence posts, what is one to do but make deviled eggs?

The Broadway revival of A Streetcar Named Desire returns to the stage, complete with plaid flannel shirts and duffel coats.

The Decatur Book Festival is this coming Labor Day weekend. If you live in the area her ladyship advises that you call in sick to work and labor, instead, to see the more than 300 authors that will be at the event.

Sebatian Junger and Judith Ortiz Cofer are among the speakers at this year's Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium in October.

In the south, even the sports have literary and poetic inclinations, as evidenced by Wright Thomspon's lovely tribute to the oaks at Toomer's Corner in Auburn:

The oaks are nothing if not survivors. Their trunks hold dark spots where dead limbs have been cut away, the scars rubbed smooth. The living limbs twist up like an open hand, a canopy of green at the intersection of College and Magnolia in Auburn, Ala. On this spot, students celebrated the beginning of the Civil War and the election of Barack Obama. It has always been the center of Auburn.

For an SEC fan like me, it's a famous place. Long before I'd ever actually seen the trees, I'd heard about Toomer's Corner. A hundred and thirty years ago, the story went, these trees were planted. Around the turn of the century, the story went, people hung telegraph tape on the trees to announce an Auburn road win. When the telegraph faded away, toilet paper replaced the ticker tape. But the essential act remained and flourished, connecting generations. When Auburn won, the students rolled Toomer's Corner.

It was joyous and innocent, right up until the day people first heard of Spike 80DF ....

Two beolved southern voices have fallen slient. Mr. Jerry Lieber, one half of the songwriting team of Smokey Joe's Cafe and the man who wrote many of the songs that are the soundtrack to the lives of a certain generation, including "Stand By Me" and "Jailhouse Rock," has died at the age of 78.

Ms. Barbara Drummond Mead, the founder and president of Reading Group Choices, also passed away this week. Her ladyship is especially saddened by the unpexpected news. Reading Group Choices has been a fixture in her ladyship's life-in-books, and each year she has looked forward to the new edition of "discussable" books because they always contained such unusual and intriguing suggestions. On the shelf by her ladyship's library table sit no less than a dozen years' worth of great reading suggestions from Ms. Mead, going back to 1999. It is a wonderful accomplishment.



Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Anson and Lurie

"Lurie had first laid eyes on Johnnes Anson Winters when she was twelve, and she had resolved to marry him or not marry at all. So she decided to wait for him. There was not a woman in the counties thereabouts, it was commented, who wouldn't abandon spouse and offspring should the opportunity have blossomed to be his second wife after the death of his first one. He was known, after all, as that cowboy who had carried his afflicted son in his arms from birth until his death at the age of six. The memory of Anson on horseback with a thumb in the baby's mouth for a pacifier stirred hearts."

--James Still, from Chinaberry (University Press of Kentucky, 2011)

Great southern books, fresh off the vine! Picked for you with care by Southern Indie Booksellers

You Believers You Believers by Jane Bradley
Unbridled Books (May, 2011)

Her writing is like a mix of Tommy Franklin and a William Gay. The narrative of You Believers (fiction) is relentless. This is her first book and it's worth every minute you invest in reading it. This woman writes with grit. --Karen Spears Zacharias

You Believers is a powerful, cathartic story of casual evil and of how the worst things can be faced so that we might not only survive, but grow. A young woman goes missing, and her mother uproots her life to find her daughter. But it is not just the heartbreak or the deep mystery of the hunt for lost loved ones that Bradley so convincingly explores. Rather, with the help of an amazingly dedicated searcher, family and friends somehow learn to move past unspeakable horror and celebrate the tenacity of the human spirit. Offering a vision that is at once ruthless and utterly compassionate, Bradley renders the search for logic, meaning, redemption and even hope in the domino force that is human nature.

Patti Callahan Henry"Romantic storytelling at its best," says Kirkus in a starred review of COMING UP FOR AIR, the latest novel from Patti Callahan Henry. It's a tale about mothers and daughters, about the lives we live and the loves we regret, and about the choices we make and the ones we wished we'd made. Join author Karen Spears Zacharias as she and Patti talk about writing, about choices, about children and about the Jubilee.

Coming Up for AirKAREN: Patti, I have a confession to make. Reading Coming up for Air made me really uncomfortable at times. I saw a lot of myself in Ellie’s mother, Lilly. Where did the characterization of Lilly originate?

PATTI: I'm not sure where she originated, probably in the strange recesses of my subconscious. But I got to know her through her journal. As I wrote her yearly entries, I came to know her (over eighty pages of her journal aren't in the novel, but I have them). I knew she'd had a broken moment in her life and had then shut off her emotions, wanting to protect her daughter from all forms of mistakes and heartbreak...

KAREN In many ways Ellie goes off the deep end when Lilly dies. Her mother’s death causes her to reevaluate her life’s choices. How often did you see this sort of thing happen in your other life, as a nurse?

PATTI: I was a pediatric nurse, so really I saw the opposite -- parents grieving the illnesses of their children. But death and the accompanying deep loss, make many of us look at how we are living our life. Ellie realizes that she was living her life without understanding the "story behind the story", which of course she does!

KAREN: You grew up in a household full of women. The daughter of a preacher. Did you feel that your life was constrained by your father’s profession and the expectations others put on the preacher’s kids?

PATTI: Absolutely. The expectations were high and the vigilance of those who "watched" us was even higher. Even long after I left home, I felt as if I was being watched by what I call a cloud of witnesses: invisible people critiquing my every move. I had to let go of that belief when I started writing, otherwise I would have never written the first story.

STARS Authors on Tour

STARSWhat are "STARS" authors? These are authors listing in the Southern Traveling Authors Registration Service--a directory of authors who live in, or are traveling in the South and are interested in meeting with book clubs, civic groups, classrooms, and readers of all kinds. The STARS directory is brought to you by Southern Indie Booksellers, who want to connect readers with their favorite writers.

Featured: Alma Katsu

Alma Katsu Debut novelist of The Taker, first book in a trilogy published by Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster Former intelligence analyst with CIA, NSA; former journalist; MINI Cooper driver; owner of whippets 

About Alma:

Many writers have certain genes in their DNA. We're the kids who always have their nose in a book, who live in the library (my first paying job was as a page—yes, a page in the library), are loners, and inordinately fond of fairy tales. I grew up reading my oldest sister's gigantic Golden Book of Fairy Tales until it fell apart. I loved the book because it had fairy tales that I'd never read before, like "Bright, Deardeer and Kit" and Japanese fairy tales (growing up half-Japanese without seeing any references to Japanese stories, this seemed very enlightened to me). I also loved the slightly horrible things kept in those translations, like how frogs and snakes would fall from a villain's lips whenever she (the main characters were often female, another plus) told a lie. Once we'd all grown up, my oldest sister decided she wanted it back. I pined for it and thought I'd never find it again, but to my delight my husband had a copy from his childhood—in pristine condition! It's one of my prized possessions.
