More About The Death of Santini by Pat Conroy
 
 
 
Overview
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A painful, lyrical, addictive read (People) by the cherished author of The Great Santini that brings his extraordinary career full circle

Pat Conroy s great success as a writer has always been intimately linked with the exploration of his family history. As the oldest of seven children who were dragged from military base to military base across the South, Pat bore witness to the often cruel and violent behavior of his father, Marine Corps fighter pilot Donald Patrick Conroy. While the publication of The Great Santini brought Pat much acclaim, the rift it caused brought even more attention, fracturing an already battered family. But as Pat tenderly chronicles here, even the oldest of wounds can heal. In the final years of Don Conroy s life, the Santini unexpectedly refocused his ire to defend his son s honor.
The Death of Santini is a heart-wrenching act of reckoning whose ultimate conclusion is that love can soften even the meanest of men, lending significance to the oft-quoted line from Pat s novel The Prince of Tides In families there are no crimes beyond forgiveness.
