Publisher's Summary

Pat Controy has created a huge, brash thunderstorm of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding with drama. Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

Filled with the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina low country as well as the dusty glitter of New York City, The Prince of Tides is Pat Conroy at his very best.

What the Critics Say

    "Still a timeless classic!"

    Well worth the listen. Wonderful character development, and just enough twists and turns along the way.

    "Sometimes you wish there were 6 stars!"

    One of Frank "The Master" Muller's best reads, may he rest in peace. This is a great book with an eloquent intro read by the author, Pat Conroy, himself as even he pays homage to the late, great Mr. Muller.

    Story
    "Utterly heartbreaking and oddly uplifting"

    The narrator grew on me. I honestly could not tell you if the negative comments biased me towards him or not.

    Listening to Conroy is like listening to a symphony.

    Story
    "Well written book."

    Great book if you want to expand your English vocabulary, and an enjoyable book with no real plot but great character development. I grew up in a similar family, without the tragedies, and a similar south that was a little more west of the Atlantic. I think Pat Conroy is a little bit too hard on the parents, but that's just my opinion, and Pat Conroy is a very talented writer.
