South of Broad : a novel by Pat Conroy.

   Chris  Review by:  Chris

Title:  South of Broad : a novel

Author:  Pat Conroy

Collection:  Adult Fiction

South of Broad follows a tight-knit group of outcasts from their senior year in high school in the 1960s to a not-so-happy reunion in the 1980s.  However, even though the story is about the friends and their individual and shared struggles, Charleston, South Carolina is as much a character in the novel as any of its people.  Conroy portrays Charleston through constant references to actual places and streets as well as through repeatedly evoking its air and culture.  The novel is practically a travelogue and could well leave readers craving a little she-crab soup in the Holy City, something I can personally testify to be worth the journey.
