Pat Conroy, the South Carolina author of bestsellers including “The Prince of Tides,” “The Great Santini” and “The Lords of Discipline,” died Friday in Beaufort,…I love this man and his beautiful writing.So sad. RIP Pat Conroy
"The Prince of Tides," by Pat Conroy. For months after I got married, my wife kept pestering me to read this novel. When I finally started, I couldn't put it down for a week. Sprawling story of a dysfunctional Southern family.
