Turning to nonfiction, the bestselling author of "Beach Music" has written an American classic about young men and the bonds they form, about losing and the lessons it imparts, and about finding one's voice and one's self in the midst of defeat.
When Pat Conroy was a student at the Citadel, he was an enthusiastic but relatively undistinguished member of the basketball team. In this memoir, he looks back on all his years of basketball, starting in elementary school, including interviews with former coaches and teammates. He also recounts the story of his father, whom he depicted as the monstrous hero of THE GREAT SANTINI and who, after he read the book, repented and reformed.
Author Bio
Pat Conroy
Conroy is the son of a career army man and a Southern woman with a passion for poisonous snakes. Several of his novels have been bestsellers, and made into successful movies.


New York Times Book Review
"The verbal hugs that Conroy throws around, with a weepy promiscuity, often lend his prose the feel of an award-acceptance speech....It's common knowledge that ex-jocks can get mawkish when recalling their youthful victories; Conroy shows that certain others of them can also get mawkish when recalling their youthful defeats. You win some, you lose some. But either way, it seems, you grow old and sappy." - Jonathan Miles 10/27/2002

Kirkus Reviews
"[C]ompensates for its frail artistry with hustle, intelligence, and passion for the game." 08/01/2002
