520    "A New York Times best-selling author of eleven novels and
       memoirs, Pat Conroy is one of America's most beloved 
       storytellers and a writer as synonymous with the South 
       Carolina lowcountry as pluff mud or the Palmetto tree. As 
       Conroy's writings have been rooted in autobiography more 
       often than not, his readers have come to know and 
       appreciate much about the once-secret dark familial 
       history that has shaped Conroy's life and work. 
       Conversations with the Conroys opens further the 
       discussion of the Conroy family through five revealing 
       interviews conducted in 2014 with Pat Conroy and four of 
       his six siblings: brothers Mike, Jim, and Tim and sister 
       Kathy. In confessional and often comic dialogs, the 
       Conroys openly discuss the perils of being raised by their
       larger-than-life parents, USMC fighter pilot Col. Don 
       Conroy (the Great Santini) and southern belle Peggy Conroy
       (née Peek); the complexities of having their history of 
       abuse made public by Pat's books; the tragic death of 
       their youngest brother, Tom; the chasm between them and 
       their sister Carol Ann; and the healing, redemptive 
       embrace they have come to find over time in one another. 
       With good humor and often-striking candor, these 
       interviews capture the Conroys as authentic and indeed 
       proud South Carolinians, not always at ease with their 
       place in literary lore, but nonetheless deeply supportive 
       of Pat in his life and writing. Edited and introduced by 
       the Palmetto State's preeminent historian, Walter Edgar, 
       Conversations with the Conroys includes the first 
       publications of Pat Conroy's interview with Edgar as the 
       keynote address of the 2014 One Book, One Columbia 
       citywide "big read" program, the unprecedented interview 
       with the Conroy siblings for SCETV Radio's Walter Edgar's 
       Journal, the resulting live Conroy Family Roundtable held 
       at the 2014 South Carolina Book Festival, and a recent 
       interview in Charleston following Pat Conroy's induction 
       into the Citadel's Athletics Hall of Fame. This collection
       is augmented with an afterword from National Book Award-
       winning poet Nikky Finney and nearly fifty photographs, 
       many from the Pat Conroy Archive in the Irvin Department 
       of Rare Books and Special Collections, University of South
       Carolina Libraries, and published here for the first time.
       Through the resulting treasure trove of text and images, 
       this volume is as much a keepsake for Conroy's legion of 
       devoted fans as it is a wealth of insider information to 
       broaden the understanding of readers and researchers alike
       of the idiosyncratic world of Pat Conroy and his family"--
