    DescriptionLeopold Bloom King has been raised in a family shattered--and shadowed--by tragedy. Lonely and adrift, he searches for something to sustain him and finds it among a tightly knit group of high school outsiders. Surviving marriages happy and troubled, unrequited loves and unspoken longings, hard-won successes and devastating breakdowns, as well as Charleston, South Carolina's dark legacy of racism and class divisions, these friends will endure until a final test forces them to face something none of them are prepared for. Spanning two turbulent decades, South of Broad is Pat Conroy at his finest: a masterpiece from a great American writer whose passion for life and language knows no bounds.

    Review quote
    Praise for "South of Broad" "Conroy is an immensely gifted stylist.... No one can describe a tide or a sunset with his lyricism and exactitude."--Chris Bohjalian, "The Washington Post " "Conroy writes with a momentum that's impossible to resist."--"People," 3 of 4 stars. "Beautifully written throughout.... Conroy is a natural at weaving great skeins of narrative, and this one will prove a great pleasure to his many fans."--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review) "Conroy is a master of American fiction and he has proved it once again in this magnificent love letter to his beloved Charleston, and to friendships that will stand the test of time."--"Bookpage" Praise for "Beach Music" "Astonishing . . . stunning . . . the range of passions and subjects that brings life to every page is almost endless." --"Washington Post Book World " "Blockbuster writing at its best." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review " "Pat Conroy's writing contains a virtue now rare in most contemporary fiction: passion." --"Denver Post " "Reading Pat Conroy is like watching Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel." --"Houston Chronicle " "Incandescent." "--Atlanta Journal-Constitution ""Grand." --"Boston Globe" "Lyrical . . . evocative . . . "Beach Music" is one from the heart, and it beats with a vibrancy that cannot be denied." --"Hartford Courant" "Breathtaking . . . perhaps the most eagerly awaited book of the year . . . a knockout." --"Charlotte Observer" ""Beach Music "attains an almost ethereal beauty." --"Miami Herald" "Few novelists write as well, and none as beautifully . . . Conroy's narrative is so fluid and poetic that it's apt to seduce you into reading just one more page, just one more chapter." --"Lexington Herald-Leader" "Compelling storytelling . . . a page-turner . . . Conroy takes aim at our darkest emotions, lets the arrow fly, and hits a bull's-eye almost every time." --"Milwaukee Journal Se
