Overview

Acclaimed author Pat Conroy's debut novel about life at the Citadel in the 1960s is a profound exploration of what it means to be a man of honor

Lt. Col. Nugent Courvoisie, known to the cadets as "the Boo," is an imposing and inspiring leader at the South Carolina military academy, the Citadel. A harsh disciplinarian but a compassionate mentor, he guides and inspires his young charges.

Cadet Peter Cates is an anomaly. He is a gifted writer, a talented basketball player, and a good student, but his outward successes do little to impress his abusive father. The Boo takes Cates under his wing, but their bond is threatened when they're forced to confront an act of violence on campus.

Drawn from Pat Conroy's own experiences as a student at the Citadel, The Boo is an unforgettable story about duty, loyalty, and standing up for what is right in the face of overwhelming circumstances.
