Chapter 3: Yacht Club

Chapter three of the Pat Conroy novel, South of Broad, is an achingly beautiful passage of pages that could stand alone as a short story. Race in the early age of desegregation - the tension, lies, and honesty between the men and women in the south - class consciousness - and the sweat of high school seniors getting ready for football ... all in the most evocative prose ... I love this novel.

(Just thought I'd say that)

Ok, was at the book store today & got The Water is Wide & Beach Music. Won't have time to get to them for a while, however.
