The Death of Santini - Pat Conroy

I admire this author.  His book, Prince of Tides, and the subsequent movie, was a favorite of mine.  His writing is emotional and gut wrenching.  This is the story of his relationship with his father, the inspiration for many of his stories and the real person behind his book, The Great Santini.

I was fascinated how two people who had such a stormy relationship could still love each other and be there for each other.  The family portrayl is brutally honest and sad.   It's a peek into the events and circumstances that create a great author.
