Rating
New or Used: 7 copies from $4.94
Pat Conroy has created a huge, brash thunderstorm of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding with drama. Spanning forty years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted ad troubled twin sister, Savannah, and the dark and violent past of the extraordinary family to which they were born. Filled with the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina lowcountry as well as the dusty glitter of New York City, "The Prince Of Tides" is Pat Conroy's most magnificent novel yet. "Powerful" -- "UPI." "A masterpiece than can compare with Steinbeck's "East Of Eden.".. Some books make you laugh; some make you cry; some make you think. "The Prince Of Tides" is a rarity: It does all three." -- "Detroit Free Press." "A big sprawling saga of a novel, the kind Steinbeck and James Jones used to write, the kind John Irving keeps writing, the kind you can hole up with and spend some days with and put down feeling that you've emerged from a terrible, wonderful spell." -- "San Francisco Chronicle." "A brilliant novel that ultimately affirms life, hope and the belief that one's future need not be contaminated by a monstrous past." -- "Chicago Tribune." "Compulsively readable" -- "Glamour." "A seductive narrative, told with bravado, flourishes, portentous foreshadowing, sardonic humor and eloquent turns of phrase...For sheer storytelling finesse, Conroy will have few rivals." -- "Publishers Weekly."
