Hardcover Book, The Prince of Tides, Pat Conroy, First Edition, Novel, Fiction, Drama, Romance
A wonderful hardcover book titled The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy. This is a 1986 first edition and an ex-library book.
This inspired masterpiece relates the dark and violent chronicle of an astounding family: the Wingos of Colleton, South Carolina. No reader will forget them. And no reader can remain untouched by their story.
All Wingos share one heritage ... shrimp fishing, poverty and the searing memory of a single terrifying event - the source of Tom Wingo's self-hatred and of his sister Savannah's suicidal despair. To save himself and Savannah, Tom confronts the past with the help of New York psychologist Susan Lowenstein. As Tom and Susan unravel the bitter history of his troubled childhood, in episodes of grotesque humor, poignant lyricism and shattering violence, the door opens vividly onto a world peopled by a cast of colorful, eccentric and unforgettable characters.
Donald Patrick Conroy (1945 – 2016) was an American author who wrote several acclaimed novels and memoirs; his books The Water is Wide, The Lords of Discipline, The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini were made into films, the last two being nominated for Oscars. He is recognized as a leading figure of late-20th-century Southern literature.
