Looking to recommend a powerfully moving memoir on audio this fall? Narrated by the incomparable Dick Hill, and with an introduction read by the author himself, THE DEATH OF SANTINI is the perfect family story to place in the hands–and headphones–of any patron eager to reunite with Pat Conroy, or anyone interested in personal and poetic prose that will provide a poignant lesson as we head into a new holiday season:
Love can conquer even the meanest of men.
Here’s what one LibraryReads reviewer has to say about this new November selection: “Pat Conroy’s amazing voice is back and makes me realize how much I have missed hearing it. THE DEATH OF SANTINI takes a hard look at what has been the most obvious influence on Conroy’s work–his family. Happily, this is not anything close to a pity party, but rather a lesson about how redemptive the powers of love and humor can be.”
