“The Wingos” of Prince Of Tides had me LOLing …. thanks to the troubled genius of Pat Conroy. Prince Of Tides

Southern Dysfunctional families have been a popular fiction genre since the invention of paper and movable type; but no one elevated it to NYT Best-seller lists quite like Pat Conroy.  Pat Conroy was The Grand Master of The Southern Dysfunctional Family novel.

I have “enjoyed” the several I have read… but can’t read them back-to-back.  The dysfuntionality is too intense.

Pat Conroy died Friday from pancreatic cancer.  He was 70.  The South Carolina Low Country lost a literary legend.

I never met Conroy.  I understand he was in a lifelong battle with internal demons ….. the same demons his characters battled in his dozen or so novels.
