By Pat Conroy, Richard Thomas (Read by)
Special Order


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 ad  troubled twin sister, Savannah, and the dark and  violent past of the extraordinary family to 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's most  magnificent novel yet.

Praise For…

"Powerful"  -- UPI.

"A  masterpiece than can compare with Steinbeck's  East Of Eden... Some books make you laugh;  some make you cry; some make you think.  The Prince Of Tides is a rarity: It does  all three." -- Detroit Free  Press.

"A big sprawling saga of a  novel, the kind Steinbeck and James Jones used to  write, the kind John Irving keeps writing, the  kind you can hole up with and spend some days with  and put down feeling that you've emerged from a  terrible, wonderful spell." -- San  Francisco Chronicle.

"A  brilliant novel that ultimately affirms life, hope and  the belief that one's future need not be  contaminated by a monstrous past." -- Chicago  Tribune.

"Compulsively  readable" -- Glamour.

"A seductive narrative, told with bravado,  flourishes, portentous foreshadowing, sardonic humor and  eloquent turns of phrase...For sheer storytelling  finesse, Conroy will have few rivals." --  Publishers Weekly.
