Ndiya Grayson returns to her childhood home of Chicago as a young professional, but even her high-end job in a law office can't protect her from half-repressed memories of childhood trauma. One evening, vulnerable and emotionally disarrayed, she goes out and meets her equal and opposite:

Shame Luther, a no-nonsense construction worker by day and a self-taught piano player by night. The love story that ensues propels them on an unforgettable journey from Chicago's South Side to the coast of Kenya as they navigate the turbulence of long-buried pasts and an uncertain future.

A stirring novel tuned to the clash between soul music's vision of our essential responsibility to each other and a world that breaks us down and tears us apart, Another Kind of Madness is an indelible tale of human connection.

"A full-bodied literary achievement bustling with sweat, regret, and sound." --KIESE LAYMON

LBB Presents ONLINE: Angie Kim - Miracle Creek

Friday, April 17, 1pm
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books presents author Angie Kim, who will discuss her debut novel, Miracle Creek, with Left Bank Books' Shane Mullen on Facebook Live at 1pm. Join us for this interactive conversation on our Facebook Page and order a copy of Mircale Creek from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

The “gripping… page-turner” (Time) hitting all the best of summer reading lists, Angie Kim's Miracle Creek is perfect for book clubs and fans of Liane Moriarty and Celeste Ng

How far will you go to protect your family? Will you keep their secrets? Ignore their lies?

In a small town in Virginia, a group of people know each other because they’re part of a special treatment center, a hyperbaric chamber that may cure a range of conditions from infertility to autism. But then the chamber explodes, two people die, and it’s clear the explosion wasn’t an accident.

A powerful showdown unfolds as the story moves across characters who are all maybe keeping secrets, hiding betrayals. Chapter by chapter, we shift alliances and gather evidence: Was it the careless mother of a patient? Was it the owners, hoping to cash in on a big insurance payment and send their daughter to college? Could it have been a protester, trying to prove the treatment isn’t safe?

“A stunning debut about parents, children and the unwavering hope of a better life, even when all hope seems lost" (Washington Post), Miracle Creek uncovers the worst prejudice and best intentions, tense rivalries and the challenges of parenting a child with special needs. It’s “a quick-paced murder mystery that plumbs the power and perils of community” (O Magazine) as it carefully pieces together the tense atmosphere of a courtroom drama and the complexities of life as an immigrant family. Drawing on the author’s own experiences as a Korean-American, former trial lawyer, and mother of a “miracle submarine” patient, this is a novel steeped in suspense and igniting discussion. Recommended by Erin Morgenstern, Jean Kwok, Jennifer Weiner, Scott Turow, Laura Lippman, and more-- Miracle Creek is a brave, moving debut from an unforgettable new voice.

Angie Kim moved as a preteen from Seoul, South Korea to the suburbs of Baltimore. She attended Stanford University and Harvard Law School, where she was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, then practiced as a trial lawyer at Williams & Connolly. Her stories have won the Glamour Essay Contest and the Wabash Prize for Fiction, and appeared in numerous publications including The New York TimesSalonSlateThe Southern ReviewSycamore ReviewAsian American Literary Review, and PANK. Kim lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and three sons.

Miracle Creek is Kim's debut novel.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Rupert Thomson - Never Anyone But You

Tuesday, April 14, 1pm
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books presents acclaimed author Rupert Thomson, who will discuss his book, Never Anyone But You, with Left Bank Books' Shane Mullen on Facebook Live at 1pm. Thomson will join us live from his home in London for this interactive conversation. Order a copy of Never Anyone But You from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

Named a Best Book of the Year by The Guardian, The Observer, and Sydney Morning Herald, Never Anyone But You is a literary tour de force that traces the real-life love affair of two extraordinary women, recreating the surrealist movement in Paris and the horrors of the world wars with a singular incandescence and intimacy.

In the years preceding World War I, two young women meet, by chance, in a provincial town in France. Suzanne Malherbe, a shy seventeen-year-old with a talent for drawing, is completely entranced by the brilliant but troubled Lucie Schwob, who comes from a family of wealthy Jewish intellectuals. They embark on a clandestine love affair, terrified they will be discovered, but then, in an astonishing twist of fate, the mother of one marries the father of the other. As "sisters" they are finally free of suspicion, and, hungry for a more stimulating milieu, they move to Paris at a moment when art, literature, and politics blend in an explosive cocktail.

Having reinvented themselves as Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, they move in the most glamorous social circles--meeting everyone from Hemingway to Dalí--and produce provocative photographs that still seem avant-garde today. In the 1930s, with the rise of anti-Semitism and fascism, they leave Paris for Jersey, and it is on this idyllic island that they confront their destiny, creating a campaign of propaganda against Hitler's occupying forces that will put their lives in jeopardy.

Brilliantly imagined, profoundly thought-provoking, and ultimately heartbreaking, Never Anyone But You infuses life into a forgotten history as only great literature can.

"A fascinating portrait of two women who challenged gender boundaries and society's norms in all they did, the book builds to a moving celebration of resistance, creativity and self-reinvention." -- The Guardian, Best Books of the Year

"There's so much sheer moxie, prismatic identity, pleasure and danger in these lives...the scenes are tense, particular and embodied...wonderfully peculiar." -- New York Times Book Review

Rupert Thomson is the author of eleven highly acclaimed novels, including Katherine CarlyleSecrecyThe Insult, which was short-listed for the Guardian Fiction Prize and selected by David Bowie as one of his 100 Must-Read Books of All Time; The Book of Revelation, which was made into a feature film by Ana Kokkinos; and Death of a Murderer, which was short-listed for the Costa Novel of the Year Award. His memoir, This Party's Got to Stop, was named Writers' Guild Non-Fiction Book of the Year. He lives in London.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Melissa M. Martin - Mosquito Supper Club

Sunday, May 17, 7pm CST
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books and Sister Cities Cajun present a post-Sunday supper conversation with Melissa M. Martin, Cajun chef behind the New Orleans restaurant Mosquito Supper Club, and Travis and Pamela Parfait of St. Louis' Sister Cities Cajun, to celebrate Martin's new cookbook, "Mosquito Supper Club: Cajun Recipes from a Disappearing Bayou." The chefs will discuss recipes, tips and techniques, growing up in the Bayou, and how to help restaurants recover from the pandemic. There will be a giveaway with a t-shirt from Mosquito Supper Club and t-shirt and merchandise from Sister Cities, with a lucky winner randomly selected from customers that purchase a signed copy of Mosquito Supper Club from Left Bank Books!

For anyone who loves Cajun food or is interested in American cooking or wants to discover a distinct and engaging new female voice--or just wants to make the very best duck gumbo, shrimp jambalaya, she-crab soup, crawfish étouffée, smothered chicken, fried okra, oyster bisque, and sweet potato pie--comes "Mosquito Supper Club."

Named after her restaurant in New Orleans, chef Melissa M. Martin's debut cookbook shares her inspired and reverent interpretations of the traditional Cajun recipes she grew up eating on the Louisiana bayou, with a generous helping of stories about her community and its cooking. Every hour, Louisiana loses a football field's worth of land to the Gulf of Mexico. Too soon, Martin's hometown of Chauvin will be gone, along with the way of life it sustained. Before it disappears, Martin wants to document and share the recipes, ingredients, and customs of the Cajun people.

Illustrated throughout with dazzling color photographs of food and place, the book is divided into chapters by ingredient--from shrimp and oysters to poultry, rice, and sugarcane. Each begins with an essay explaining the ingredient and its context, including traditions like putting up blackberries each February, shrimping every August, and the many ways to make an authentic Cajun gumbo. Martin is a gifted cook who brings a female perspective to a world we've only heard about from men. The stories she tells come straight from her own life, and yet in this age of climate change and erasure of local cultures, they feel universal, moving, and urgent.

Melissa M. Martin grew up on the Louisiana coast and has lived in New Orleans for 20 years. After graduating from Loyola University in New Orleans, she worked as an adult literacy teacher until she evacuated to Northern California during Hurricane Katrina. While living there, she worked at some of the top Napa Valley vineyards and restaurants, and this is where she honed her self-taught culinary skills to a professional level. Martin returned to New Orleans three years later and opened Satsuma Café, a casual farm-to-table restaurant, and worked at Café Hope, a nonprofit restaurant, teaching at-risk youth to cook seasonal food. In 2014, she opened Mosquito Supper Club, where she serves family-style meals to small groups of guests who reserve a place at her table months in advance.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Kathy Valentine - All I Ever Wanted

Monday, April 27, 7pm
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books presents musician, songwriter, and author Kathy Valentine, who will discuss her book All I Ever Wanted, a memoir of her time as bass player with the all-female band the Go-Go's, on Facebook Live at 7pm on April 27. Kathy will be in conversation with journalist Annie Zaleski. Join us for this interactive conversation on our Facebook Page and order a copy of All I Ever Wanted from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

At twenty-one, Kathy Valentine was at the Whisky in Los Angeles when she met a guitarist from a fledgling band called the Go-Go's--and the band needed a bassist. The Go-Go's became the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play instruments themselves, write their own songs, and have a number one album. Their debut, Beauty and the Beat, spent six weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 and featured the hit songs "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed." The record's success brought the pressures of a relentless workload and schedule culminating in a wild, hazy, substance-fueled tour that took the band from the club circuit to arenas, where fans, promoters, and crew were more than ready to keep the party going.

For Valentine, the band's success was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream--but it's only part of her story. All I Ever Wanted traces the path that took her from her childhood in Texas--where she all but raised herself--to the height of rock n' roll stardom, devastation after the collapse of the band that had come to define her, and the quest to regain her sense of self after its end. Valentine also speaks candidly about the lasting effects of parental betrayal, abortion, rape, and her struggles with drugs and alcohol--and the music that saved her every step of the way. Populated with vivid portraits of Valentine's interactions during the 1980s with musicians and actors from the Police and Rod Stewart to John Belushi and Rob Lowe, All I Ever Wanted is a deeply personal reflection on a life spent in music.

Kathy Valentine is a working musician and songwriter known for being part of the all-female band the Go-Go's. She wrote or cowrote many of the band's most renowned songs, including "Vacation" and "Head Over Heels." In addition to playing music and writing songs, Valentine has worked as an actor, public speaker and spokesperson, and producer. In 2017 she created "She Factory," an event series to raise money for women-centered nonprofits. She currently lives in her hometown of Austin with her daughter, where she plays in a band and is completing her first college degree.

Annie Zaleski is a freelance journalist, editor and critic based in Cleveland, Ohio. Previously, she was the music editor at the Riverfront Times and managing editor at Alternative Press. Her profiles, interviews and criticism have appeared in publications such as Rolling Stone, NPR Music, The Guardian, Salon, Billboard, Stereogum, The A.V. Club, and more. She has won numerous first place awards from the Ohio Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), including Best Arts Review (Digital Media, Freelance, 2017) and Best Feature Writing (Freelance, Digital Media, 2019). In 2016, she wrote the liner notes for the deluxe edition of R.E.M.'s Out of Time. She is currently working on the book Why the B-52s Matter (University of Texas Press) and a 33 1/3 book on Duran Duran's Rio.

malaika b horne, mother wit"This book describes in a vivid and poignant manner the remarkable ability of a mid-twentieth century Black woman--living under conditions of Apartheid as practiced in the United States--to overcome harsh and even grotesque societal obstacles, and succeed in rearing six children. That each of them went on to excel in their chosen fields is worthy of serious contemplation.

Moreover, the author's penchant for candor is coupled with a constructive theme of hope and faith in the future."

NOW ONLINE: LBB Presents: TaraShea Nesbit - Beheld

Thursday, March 19, 7pm
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Considering recommendations from the CDC, TaraShea will be in conversation with Left Bank Books' Shane Mullen in a Facebook Live discussion of her new book "Beheld." Join us for this interactive conversation and order a copy of your book from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!
https://www.left-bank.com/book/9781635573220

Left Bank Books presents best-selling and award winning author, TaraShea Nesbit, who will sign and discuss her historical fiction novel, Beheld, about the first killing in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

tarashea nesbit, beheldIt begins with a killing. Ten years after the Mayflower struck shore on rocky, unfamiliar soil, Plymouth is not the land its residents had imagined. Seemingly established on a dream of religious freedom, the town is led by fervent Puritans who prevent the Anglican residents from worshipping as they choose. The Billingtons—Anglicans, outsiders, and rebels—have just about had enough, and that’s when a stranger arrives.

 With gripping, immersive details and beautiful prose, TaraShea Nesbit reframes the story of the pilgrims in the voices of two women of very different status and means. She evokes a vivid, ominous Plymouth, populated by famous and unknown characters alike, each with conflicting desires and questionable behavior. Suspenseful and literary, Beheld is about a murder and a trial; but it’s also about the motivations—personal and political—that cause people to act in unsavory ways.

 Whose stories get told over time, who gets believed—and subsequently, who gets punished? Beheld is an intimate, personal portrait of love, motherhood, and friendship, and an exploration of what people lose and whet they struggle to maintain.

TaraShea Nesbit is the author of The Wives of Los Alamos, which was a national bestseller, a finalist for the PEN/Bingham Prize, and a New York Times Book Review “Editors’ Choice,” and the winner of two New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. She earned a PhD in literature and creative writing from the University of Denver. She is an assistant professor at Miami University and lives in Oxford, OH with her family.

LBB Presents: Vicki Berger Erwin & James Erwin - Steamboat Disasters of the Lower Missouri River

Monday, February 24, 7pm
Left Bank Books

Vicki Berger Erwin, James Erwin, Steamboat Disasters of the Lower Missouri RiverLeft Bank Books presents local Kirkwood authors Vicki Berger Erwin and James Erwin, who will discuss snd sign their first book written together, Steamboat Disasters of the Lower Missouri River.

During the nineteenth century, more than three hundred boats met their end in the steamboat graveyard that was the Lower Missouri River, from Omaha to its mouth. Although derided as little more than an “orderly pile of kindling,” steamboats were, in fact, technological marvels superbly adapted to the river’s conditions. Their light superstructure and long, wide, flat hulls powered by high-pressure engines drew so little water that they could cruise on “a heavy dew” even when fully loaded. But these same characteristics made them susceptible to fires, explosions and snags—tree trunks ripped from the banks, hiding under the water’s surface. Authors Vicki and James Erwin detail the perils that steamboats, their passengers and crews faced on every voyage.

Vicki Berger Erwin has had 29 books published – middle-grade mysteries, local history and true crime. Her recent works include Different Days, a novel about a young girl whose German-American parents were interned in Hawaii after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Slaying in South St. Louis: Justice Denied for Nancy Zanone, the story of the murder of a young mother and how it changed Missouri’s juvenile criminal law (co-authored with son Bryan), and Mexico, an illustrated history of her hometown.

James Erwin attended law school at the University of Missouri-Columbia after service in the Army. Jim was an attorney in St. Louis for 38 years, concentrating in business litigation. He argued his first appeal in the United States Supreme Court in 1979, launching a career in appellate practice. He sneaked in the time to write three books on the Civil War – Guerrillas in Civil War Missouri, Guerrilla Hunters in Civil War Missouri, and Homefront in Civil War Missouri. He wrote St. Charles: A Brief History, published just before the city’s 250th birthday. 

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Steamboat Disasters of the Lower Missouri River from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
