Hurry up and wait for Conroy’s latest.

I can’t remember when I last anticipated a book release so much. And then Southern Living went and put an excerpt of the book in their latest magazine. My mouth is watering. It’s been 14 years since Pat Conroy has put out a fat, engrossing southern fiction novel. Reviewers are promising that it will be worth the wait. Set in one of the South’s favorite cities, Conroy’s beloved Charleston, the novel hits some of the heavy issues of Conroy’s previous books and the themes of so much southern fiction—privilege and prejudice. Pre-order your copy today. (Incidentally, the release date is August 11, one day after my birthday. Thanks, Pat.)
