#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A big sweeping novel of friendship and marriage” (The Washington Post) by the celebrated author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini
Leopold 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 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.

This is one of my favorite Conroy works. Depending on which way the wind is blowing, this and Beach Music stand out as two of my favorites.

I loved this book and Pat Conroy's style. I'm a big Conroy fan being a southern woman transplanted to California's Bay Area. I lived in Charleston 1980 - 1981 so could this book really resonated with me due to all the action taking place in San Francisco & Charleston, S.C.
I love Conroy's ability to write in a way that so vividly paints, in words, the locale, sights, smells, sounds and atmosphere of a setting. And the characters are rich, real and so interesting.
I highly recommend this book for a good read that is hard to put down and a must read for anyone who loves Charleston and the rich tapestry of southern characters and the beauty of the south.
