South of Broad

by Steve on September 24, 2010

Just finished Pay Conroy’s latest novel, “South of Broad” last night. It ranks right up there with his other fantastic works. Authors draw from life’s experiences and if Conroy lived through even a fraction of the twisted material he writes about it’s a wonder he’s not locked up in a padded cell somewhere. He writes with a distinct voice and a mastery of the language that is beyond most writers of our generation. Even though I knew where the final twist was headed – he drops a clue early in the plot that’s easy to miss – his tale of life’s full circle held me from beginning to end. Conroy deals with the dark side of humanity and “South of Broad” is no different in that respect but you always come away respecting his characters for their clash with tragedy.

Hey Steve, do you loan books out? I do not know if I have it but need to check. If I did I think I would have held on to it. I love his books.
