I agree with the Book Review above. I thought there was too mich angst.too many racist relationships, too much disgusting stuff such as vomit, feces, aids, none of it my impression of Charlston..I would be surprised if people in Charleston are still speaking to Conroy. This book, along with "Beach Music" in my opinion is just "off the wall"..I loved "Prince of Tides, "The Great Santini" and all the others..I especially liked the stories Pat Conroy told in the Pat Conroy cookbook..those were real stories, and you could get to know the real Conroy..that is what he should write about. I love Pat Conroy,..he could get in your heart, your mind..but he has better novels than "South of Broad".
