The Prince of Tides
"Pat Conroy has created a huge, brash, thunderstorm of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding with drama. Spanning forty years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and the dark and violent past of the extraordinary family into which they were born. Filled with the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina lowcountry as well as the dusty glitter of New York City, The Prince Of Tides is Pat Conroy at his best"--Back cover.

This is a monumental work and one of the best books I have ever read. A "must" for a list of best American literature.

The writing is beautiful. Conroy creates images, so that you feel as if you're watching the story on a screen.
