About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1986. First edition. About fine in near fine jacket. Inscribed first edition of Conroy's magnum opus. Conroy's most ambitious and successful of his several successful novels, a sweeping saga of family trauma repressed and recovered, sibling bonds, porpoises, eagles, Bengal tigers, and psychiatrists. The subject of a memorable Barbara Streisand film adaptation in 1991. A lovely copy of a beloved book. 9'' x 6''. Original quarter blue cloth with olive-grey boards. Tan endpapers. In original unclipped ($19.95) dust jacket, illustrated by Wendell Minor. 567, [1] pages. Inscribed by Conroy on title page: "To Jim and Leland, Merry Christmas, Pat Conroy". Touch of creasing to jacket edges.

Synopsis

In his most brilliant and powerful novel, Pat Conroy tells the story of Tom Wingo, his twin sister, Savannah, and the dark and violent past of the family into which they were born. Pat Conroy reveals the lives of his characters with surpassing depth and power, capturing the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina lowcountry and a lost way of life. His lyric gifts, abundant good humor, and compelling storytelling are well known to readers of The Great Santini and The Lords of Discipline. The Prince of Tides continues that tradition yet displays a new, mature voice of Pat Conroy, signaling this work as his greatest accomplishment.
