{Judging a person by their bookshelf.}

In which Ms. Lauren Groff declines to answer a question, Mr. Wiley Cash starts a book club, Wendell, NC gets a bookstore, and her ladyship, the editor, speculates on her neighbors.

Dearest readers,

Every morning when her ladyship, the editor, goes to get her morning newspaper she grabs a couple books from a stack on the shelf by the door to add to the Little Free Library she has installed under the big live oak tree at the end of her driveway.

Little Free Library Under the Oak

The books on the shelf are a collection of books she likes and wants to pass on, books she didn't like and wants to pass on to someone who might, books she ended up having more than one copy of (this happens to her rather often, despite her best intentions), and review copies that are old enough they have had their day and are now out of print. She's currently passing along review copies that date to 2004-2005. This morning she added a copy of Natasha Boyd's novel, Indigo Girl, which falls into the first of the above categories, and a copy of The Edible South, which falls into the third. A friend recently gave her ladyship a copy as a gift, so she relinquished the copy she already owned.

Have you ever looked at the books on a shelf and jumped to conclusions about their owner? Her ladyship, the editor, sometimes finds herself speculating about her neighbors as she adds books to the library each morning. The little cupboard has been under that oak tree for over six years now, and most of the people on the street will stop by to "check books out" or add books of their own.

A Sport and a PasttimeAside from the usual collection of reading material left by the Jehovah's Witnesses, her ladyship has found:

--various works by Roland Barthes
-- an ever-revolving set of Bertie Wooster novels
-- an introductory guide to learning Chinese
--a guide to making ceramic machine parts at home
--Christian-themed diet books
--a nearly complete collection of biographies by Joseph J. Ellis (those lasted about half a day before disappearing
-- a cookbook from the Campbell's Soup company
-- Naked Lunch by William Burroughs
-- a how-to book on making fishing lures
-- random volumes from an 1983 set of the World Book Encyclopedia

Her ladyship was tempted by that last, because she grew up with a set of World Books -- from the late 70s, she believes. But she at last convinced herself there was no earthly reason to keep copies of the T, G, and H volumes from a 1983 set. She did, however, grab a copy of A Sport and a Pastime by James Salter.

And now she wonders, when she glances out her window to see neighbors pausing at the little library under her tree, exactly which of them had been reading William Burroughs, and which of them had been trying to learn Chinese.

Read Independently! And shop local.

her ladyship, the editor

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book

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

The New INheritors

He was born filled with animals.

Before he could see and before the gift of speech, before his had could grasp the tools to channel them, to let them leap out onto canvas or page, the animals were there. They owned his proportions and made themselves known in his cries and movements and they prowled in the wet, dark Eden of his heart.

When their chorused noises woke his mother in the night, she, little more than a girl herself, would lay her ear to his chest and hear hoof-beats on grass and the seventeen-year whirr of locusts, the wingbeats of egrets rising from a field. The sounds of her girlhood in the piney woods of Mississippi, the place she had abandoned for the city of New Orleans and a man who was killed in a brawl not three months after she'd fallen pregnant by him. The man had barely acknowledged her pregnancy except to say what he wanted the child called if it happened to be a son, but he was dead so she'd granted herself the privilege. She named him Isaac.

--Kent Wascom, The New Inheritors (Grove Press, 2018) 9780802128171


The Lost CountryMemphis
April, 1955

The court had awarded her custody of the motorcycle, they were going this day to get it. Edgewater was sitting on the curb drinking orange juice from a cardboard carton when the white Ford convertible came around the corner. A Crown Victoria with the top down though the day was cool and Edgewater had been sitting in the sun for such heat as there was. The car was towing what he judged to be a horse trailer. It was early, not quite seven, but the sun was heavy on him, sensuous, a good spring morning.

By the time she came he had almost finished drink his breakfast and smoked a cigarette and was idly watching cars pass in the street. Birds called aloft on the trees above him, children bicycled past on their way to school. She had just got off the midnight shift and had not even bothered to change out of her uniform. memphis police dept., the emblem on her shoulder said, she had a badge to prove it. She was a meter maid.

Claire eased the car to the curb and shoved it into park and left it idling. She wore a scarf over her dirtyblond hair and an air vaguely theatrical and, when she pushed her sunglasses up with a scarlet fingernail, her eyes were the color of irises.

What are you doing in this part of town, sailor?

--William Gay, The Lost Country (Dzanc Books, 2018) 9781945814525

Kent WAscom on The New Inheritors

top | share this fb tw

The Okra Pick(s) of the Week

"This is a thoughtful, charming middle grade story, full of smarts. The way our heroine Cricket finds both wonder and sympathy for the flawed adults around her is heartwarming."--recommended by M Judson, Booksellers and Storytellers, Greenville, SC

The New Inheritors by Kent Wascom

Kent Wascom is one of the most exciting and ambitious emerging voices in American fiction. Envisaging a quartet of books telling the story of America through a single family and region, the Gulf Coast of the United States, Wascom began with his much-lauded debut, The Blood of Heaven, published when he was just twenty-six and praised as "stunning" by the Miami Herald, and "like the sermon of a revivalist preacher" by the Wall Street Journal. His second novel, Secessia, continues the story of the Woolsack family in Civil War New Orleans, and in The New Inheritors, he has written his most powerful and poignant novel yet.

In 1914, with the world on the brink of war, Isaac, a nature-loving artist whose past is mysterious to all, including himself, meets Kemper, a defiant heiress caught in the rivalry between her brothers. Kemper's older brother Angel is hiding a terrible secret about his sexuality, and her younger brother Red possesses a capacity for violence that frightens even the members of his own brutal family. Together Isaac and Kemper build a refuge on their beloved, wild, Gulf Coast. But their paradise is short-lived; as the coast is rocked by the storms of summer, the country is gripped by the furor preceding World War I, and the Woolsack family's rivalries come to a bloody head. From the breathtaking beauty of the Gulf to the bloody havoc wreaked by the United States in Latin America, The New Inheritors explores the beauty and burden of what is handed down to us all. At once a love story and a family drama, a novel of nature and a novel of war, The New Inheritors traces a family whose life is intimately tied to the Gulf, that most disputed, threatened, and haunted part of this country we call America.

The Lost Country by William Gay

Ten years after it was first announced, Dzanc is proud to deliver the lost novel from a master of the Southern Gothic--the work William Gay fans have anticipated for a decade.

Billy Edgewater is a harbinger of doom. Estranged from his family, discharged from the Navy, and touched by a rising desperation, he sets out hitchhiking home to East Tennessee, where his father is slowly dying.

On the road, separately, are Sudy and Bradshaw, brother and sister, and a one-armed con man named Roosterfish. All, in one way or another, have their pasts and futures embroiled with D.L. Harkness, a predator in all the ways there are. Hounded at every turn by scams, vigilantes, grievous loss, and unspeakable violence, Edgewater navigates the long road home, searching for a place that may be nothing but memory.

Hailed as "a seemingly effortless storyteller" by the New York Times Book Review and "a writer of striking talent" by the Chicago Tribune, William Gay, with this long-awaited novel, secures his place alongside Faulkner, O'Connor, and McCarthy as one of the greatest novelists in the Southern Gothic tradition.
