An intensely personal account of the season of '67 when Pat Conroy played basketball at the Citadel, the military college in Charleston, South Carolina, My Losing Season is no ordinary sporting memoir. It is an American classic of young men, their dreams, their ambitions, the friendships they forged, and the losses they suffered, both on and off the court. But more importantly, it is a tale of the triumph of the human spirit. Pat Conroy reveals in heartbreaking, utterly mesmerizing detail his young life with his overbearing father--and in exquisite, seamless prose the truth about the Great Santini. In his trademark language, we witness a youthful Conroy walk away from his life as an athlete to become the inimitable writer the world would come to know--and love--as a result of his losing season.
