This is not going to be a book review. I am not even finished with the book. In fact, In a way, I am trying to avoid finishing the book.

Have you ever waited 14 years for an author to write another book and then it comes out and while you are reading it you realize that when you are done reading, it may be a very long time until there is another one to read - so you want to slow down and savor the experience even more, except that it is so good that you keep staying up late at night to read just a little more before bed?

That is my experience with South of Broad by Pat Conroy. Loving it, don't want it to end.

That's quite a nonreview! Mr. Conroy is responsible for getting Terry Kay, a great Georgia writer, into the business. Kay tells a funny story about it.

Oh my. I love my Pat Conroy and that southern man writing. Although I find most of his books to have the same underlying story of boy in love with dysfunctional mama at the heart, it is like eating rich dark chocolate rum syrup to let his words drip off your tongue, isn't it? Will have to pick this one up immediately.
