Recently I finished reading SOUTH OF BROAD by Pat Conroy. The book is set mostly in Charleston, South Carolina in the late 1960s. The book's main character is gossip columnist Leopold Bloom King. Pat Conroy does a fantastic job of pulling in his reader with his wonderfully descriptive language and interesting story lines. I would highly recommend SOUTH OF BROAD and it is a testament to Pat Conroy that I did not want the book to end.
