Pat Conroys writes prose that sounds like poetry when read by Dan John Miller. Although The Lords of Discipline is often referred to as a "coming of age" story it is much more than that. It is told retrospectively so the sensibilities of an adult man inform the life events of a boy. What is remarkable about that feat is that it is done without cynicism.
Pat nails "it" in this book. It being life.
