South of Broad by Pat Conroy has a cast of characters which include Leopold Bloom King who has been raised in a family which was shattered and shadowed by tragedy. Lonely and adrift, he searches for something to sustain him and finds it among a tightly knit group of high school outsiders.
Surviving marriages happy and troubled, unrequited loves and unspoken longings, hard-won successes and devastating breakdowns, as well as Charleston, South Carolina's dark legacy of racism and class divisions, these friends will endure until a final test forces them to face something none of them are prepared for. Spanning two turbulent decades, South of Broad by Pat Conroy reflects the author at his finest: a masterpiece from a great American writer whose passion for life and language knows no bounds.
