  • Please avoid spoilers!

“Tonight, Sheba Poe,” Ike says, “you’re coming clean. You’re going to lay it all out for us. I don’t mind dying for you. I really don’t. But I’d sure as hell like to know why.” South of Broad by Pat Conroy p. 280

    Intriguing teaser! I remember having my interest piqued by the synopsis of this one. I’ll have to make a note to look into it further. Here’s my teaser

    Jacqueline, It’s an incredible read. I’m not sure either the teaser or the synopsis do it justice! It will probably be a contentiously reviewed book though as there are strong themes and ideas in it. I am adoring it, though!

    Marg and Gautami, this is my first Conroy but if this is indicative of his normal fare, I am in for the long haul. I’ve very excited that I’ve found this new amazing writer. I’m a little bit wary though because on first review it appears that this is a bit of a departure from his usual stuff. I’m not sure if that’s true or not but we’ll see. I can’t wait until this comes out. I have a feeling it’s going to be a bit of a hot button.

    Thanks, Leya, it’s was hard to pick one teaser. It’s an incredibly quotable text.

    It has been a while since I’ve read Pat Conroy’s books.

    I don’t mind dying for you. I really don’t. But I’d sure as hell like to know why.” ~~ will make a great dramatic quote.
