Synopsis

BONUS: This edition contains a South of Broad discussion guide and an excerpt from Pat Conroy's The Great Santini.

Leopold Bloom King has been raised in a family shattered—and shadowed—by tragedy. Lonely and adrift, he searches for something to sustain him and finds it among a tightly knit group of high school outsiders. Surviving marriages happy and troubled, unrequited loves and unspoken longings, hard-won successes and devastating breakdowns, as well as Charleston, South Carolina’s dark legacy of racism and class divisions, these friends will endure until a final test forces them to face something none of them are prepared for.
Spanning two turbulent decades, South of Broad is Pat Conroy at his finest: a masterpiece from a great American writer whose passion for life and language knows no bounds.

    South of Broad

    The book has the magic of transporting you to the Low Country. The colours, smells, sounds become so fresh that you can actually experience the atmosphere. You are drawn into the convoluted lives of the characters and find yourself developing empathy for even the most despicable characters. Humour, pathos, racial tension all propel the story to a satisfying read.
