My Losing Season: A Memoir

My Losing Season: A Memoir

Pat Conroy


Pat Conroy, certainly one of America’s top-rated novelists, has penned a deeply affecting coming-of-age memoir approximately family members, love, loss, basketball—and lifestyles itself. in the course of one unforgettable season as a fortress cadet, Conroy turns into a part of a basketball staff that's eventually destined to fail. And but for an army child who grew up at the circulate, the Bulldogs supply a sanctuary from the chilly, abrasive father who dominates his life—and a crucible for changing into his personal man.

With all of the drama and incandescence of his bestselling fiction, Conroy re-creates his pivotal senior 12 months as captain of the castle Bulldogs. He chronicles the highs and lows of that fateful 1966–67 season, his difficult disciplinarian trainer, the thrill of successful, and the hard-won classes of wasting. so much of all, he recounts how a bunch of boys got here jointly as a staff, enjoying a game that might develop into a metaphor for a guy whose spirit may by no means be defeated.
