Grady Hendrix shared a note and highlight from
The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
“A reader lives many lives,” James Harris said. “The person who doesn’t read lives but one. But if you’re happy just doing what you’re told and reading what other people think you should read, then don’t let me stop you. I just find it sad.”
If this quote, coupled with James Harris’ tremendous condescension, doesn’t send you screaming for the hills, then it’s too late. I wanted James Harris to be the most toxic man in the world, and that meant he needed to have totally pretentious taste in books and overflow with sanctimonious little sayings like this one. Believe it or not, this was originally written by George R.R. Martin in 2011, but I gave it to James Harris earlier because why not. It’s a twist on a Hemingway quote, “The coward dies a thousand deaths, the brave but one.” in A Farewell to Arms, which is a paraphrase of the ...more

The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
“Being a teenager isn’t a number,” Maryellen said. “It’s the age when you stop liking them.” “You don’t like the girls?” Patricia asked. “No one likes their children,” Maryellen said. “We love them to death, but we don’t like them.”
One of the hardest things to do in this book was write from the point of view of a parent. I don’t have kids and I could not even begin to wrap my head around what it was like to have them. So I began interviewing parents I knew. I took them out for breakfast, I plied them with wine, I asked questions, came back and did follow-ups, and emailed them relentlessly. And in the course of doing all this, two quotes clicked for me that snapped it everything into place. One friend said, “Having kids is really, really boring.” She told me that routines and consitency are important for kids, but that ...more

The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
they were all in this together, and if their husbands ever took out a life insurance policy on them they were in trouble.
I actually wrote two full versions of Southern Book Club before deciding this book club would read true crime. In those earlier drafts they read books like The Bridges of Madison County (which I kept because I love their take on it so much), Madame Bovary, Rebecca, and True Grit (one of my all time favorite books). I wove into the narrative, reflecting it and taking it in new directions, before I suddenly thought, “Wait a minute, wouldn’t it be more fun if they were a true crime book club?” I realized the only thing stopping me was that I’d grown up with a serious prejudice towards true crime ...more

Sometimes she craved a little danger. And that was why she had book club.
Hey y’all - I’m Grady Hendrix and welcome to the annotations for The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires. This book is a spiritual sequel to my novel, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, which was also set in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant, but it takes place in 1988, a few years before this one. None of the same characters recur (although there’s one character from Southern Book Club who gets mentioned in My Best Friend’s Exorcism) but both books are about friendship: My Best Friend’s Exorcism is about teenaged friendship while this book is about the much stronger, much stranger, much more ...more

This book was pretty good until the introduction of a lackluster romance between the protagonist and an SS officer that took up far too many of the pages. Not only did they have zero chemistry, but I really didn’t want or ask for a “reformed Nazi” lo ...more

Stark, honest, and deeply vulnerable; as a fellow survivor of this horrible illness, it’s a piece of strength and solidarity.
