AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE
 
 
 
 
Dearest Readers
 

Last week Hurricane Florence blew through North and South Carolina after making landfall on top of her ladyship, the editor's house. Luckily, her ladyship was not in it at the time, having traveled to Tampa for the annual Southern booksellers conference. The storm flooded all the routes back to town and knocked out the generator at the airport, so although she has been assured by friends that her house weathered the storm, her ladyship has not been able to return.

 

What to do when you are stranded away from home, waiting for the flood waters to recede? Three guesses. It is the one upside to being stranded on the way back from a book show -- one always has something to read. In this case, her ladyship's "something to read" was Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy:

One thing I learned early on about Pat was that any story I told he would top.
-- Ron Rash

Pat Conroy at his deskHe had a natural onstage presence so huge it overwhelmed his audiences. A large, imposing man, he could enter a crowded room and clear a path with his Irish smile and his Irish blue eyes and his Irish bluster, one of those rare people full up to the brim with charisma. And he knew how to use it.
--Terry Kay

Dear Pat, First I fell in love with your book, and then I fell in love with you
-- Barbra Streisand

I am a literary bird--poet, essayist, fiction writer--and Pat Conroy is a literary bird as well, but what sort of literary birds are we? Conroy was a bird of great wingspan. Eagle? Hawk? Roseate spoonbill? Sandhill crane? Whatever Pat Conroy is, he spent years riding literary thermals high and catching the big view, soaring upward on culture's warm blasts, the soaring outward for miles.
--John Lane

I was a twenty-three-year-old editor for Southern Living magazine sent to interview him. Conroy called my editor to complain that I was too young for the job and advised him "Next time, send a sperm." But he like the piece I wrote about him. He stayed in touch He encouraged me to finish my novel.
-- Mark Childress

The book is exactly what it says on the tin. Story after story, anecdote after anecdote from writer after writer whose lives brushed up against Pat Conroy and subsequently became entangled in his unique brand of friendship and mentorship.

 

None of them seem to have ever minded being so entrapped. When Rick Bragg was told this past weekend that he had been chosen to receive the 2019 Conroy Legacy Award, he said "I heard Pat Conroy read his work aloud and it will almost make you abandon this craft for good and take up something like brick laying. The elegance and beauty of it always, across decades, made me think ‘Oh, so this is what it is supposed to sound like, be, linger in the mind.’ The fact he once said good things about my own work made me walk on air."

 

He was a man who made others feel like they "walked on air" -- memory after memory in "Our Prince of Scribes" testifies to it. It is a legacy at least as valuable and important as his books.

Lady Banks' Commonplace Book
 
Excerpted noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.
 

White Rage

He left the message every few months, the same message, word for word.


"Bragg? This is Conroy. It is now obvious that it is up to me to keep this dying friendship alive. You do not write. You do not call. But I am willing to carry this burden all by myself. It is a tragedy. Ors could have been a father-son relationship, but you rejected that. And now it is all up to me to keep this dying [bleep bleep, bleeepity, bleeping] friendship from fading away. . ."


And then there would be a second or so of silence before:


"I love you, son."


That part always sounded real.


I would always call back, immediately, but the voicemail just told me it was full, always full. I would learn, over decades, that it was full because I was not the only writer or friend he had adopted, or even the only one he left that same message of mock disappointment and feigned regret. But now and then I would actually be there when he called, and we would talk an hour or two about writers and language and why I should move my mother and he would always, always tell me he had read my latest book and how proud he was of me.
Then he would tell me how he did not mind that I had neglected our friendship and that his broad shoulders could carry the weight of my indifference, and the phone would go dead.


My God, I will miss that.

 

--Rick Bragg, in Our Prince of Tides: Writers Remember Pat Conroy edited by Nicole Seitz and Jonathan Haupt (University of Georgia Press, 2018) 9780820354484

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers


The Law of Finders Keepers by Sheila Turnage
The wait is over. Grab this fourth and final book in the Three Times Lucky group (series?) and put it in the hands of every young reader. Desperado Detectives Mo, Dale and Harm race a scheming out-of-towner to locate Blackbeard's buried treasure, but for Mo the real find may be clues to her Upstream Mother. In this novel that celebrates friends, family and home, it is the lovable characters who will live in our hearts for a long time. True treasure.

 

The Law of Finders Keepers by Sheila Turnage ($16.99*, Kathy Dawson Books), recommended by Quail Ridge Books , Raleigh, NC.

 A Summer 2018 Okra Pick

 

 



She Would Be King by Wayétu Moore
What a beautifully written debut novel. Part fairytale, part history, this novel follows three magical characters from disparate parts of the world that converge to fight for the creation of Liberia. The prose is luscious, the characters are fully formed, and the setting is fascinating. 

 

She Would Be King by Wayétu Moore ($26.00*, Graywolf Press), recommended by union ave books, knoxville, TN.

 

 



One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson
This is the book every voter needs to read before the 2018 midterm elections. It's important to know the past so we can change the future. One Person, No Vote is horrifying in its explicit, thorough, and well-researched documentation of voter suppression from 1865 to the present. Highly recommend.

 

One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson ($27.00*, Bloomsbury Publishing), recommended by Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.

 A Summer 2018 Okra Pick

 

 



Crudo by Olivia Laing
With any luck, Crudo will be one of most talked about books this year. I sure hope so. Crudo asks questions about narrative proximity and perspective, as it emerges from recent events (Brexit, the 2016 presidential election, the solar eclipse) to articulate what we've felt, what we're feeling. Plus, it's a story. It's a fictionalized memoir by Kathy Acker, not written by Kathy Acker. I found comfort in this book, which is brave to trouble waters of form and subjectivity, and to ask about empathy. 

 

Crudo by Olivia Laing ($21.00*, W.W. Norton & Company), recommended by Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.

The Okra Pick(s) of the Week
 

 


Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy by Nicole Seitz

New York Times best-selling writer Pat Conroy (1945-2016) inspired a worldwide legion of devoted fans numbering in the millions, but none are more loyal to him and more committed to sustaining his literary legacy than the many writers he nurtured over the course of his fifty-year writing life. In sharing their stories of Conroy, his fellow writers honor his memory and advance our shared understanding of his lasting impact on twentieth- and twenty-first-century literary life in and well beyond the American South.

 

Conroy's was a messy fellowship of people from all walks of life. His relationships were complicated, and people and places he thought he'd left behind often circled back to him at crucial moments. The pantheon of contributors includes Pulitzer Prize winners Rick Bragg and Kathleen Parker; Grammy winners Barbra Streisand and Janis Ian; Lillian Smith Award winners Anthony Grooms and Mary Hood; National Book Award winner Nikky Finney; James Beard Foundation Award winners Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart; a corps of New York Times best-selling authors, including Ron Rash, Sandra Brown, and Mary Alice Monroe; Conroy biographers Katherine Clark and Catherine Seltzer; longtime Conroy friends Bernie Schein, Cliff Graubart, John Warley, and Walter Edgar; Pat's students Sallie Ann Robinson and Valerie Sayers; members of the Conroy family; and many more.

 

Each author in this collection shares a slightly different view of Conroy. Through their voices, a vibrant, multifaceted portrait of him comes to life and sheds new light on the writer and the man. Loosely following Conroy's own chronology, the essays in Our Prince of Scribes wind through his river of a story, stopping at important ports of call. Cities he called home and longed to visit, along with each book he birthed, become characters that are as equally important as the people he touched and loved along the way.
