PAT CONROY has created a huge, brash thunderstorm of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding with drama. Spanning forty years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.
Filled with the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina low country as well as the dusty glitter of New York City, The Prince of Tides is PAT CONROY at his very best.
Pat Conroy is the bestselling author of The Water is Wide, The Great Santini, The Lords of Discipline, The Prince of Tides, and Beach Music. He lives in Fripp Island, South Carolina.
“Reading PAT CONROY is like watching Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel.”
“A big, sprawling saga of a novel . . . the kind you hole up with and spend some days with and put down feeling you have emerged from a terrible, wonderful spell.”
–San Francisco Chronicle
–Detroit Free Press
“This is a powerful book. . . . CONROY is a master of language.”
–The Atlanta Journal
