During one unforgettable season as a Citadel cadet, Conroy became part of a basketball team destined to fail. And yet for a military kid who grew up on the move, the Bulldogs were a sanctuary from the cold, abrasive father who dominated his life-and a crucible for becoming his own man. An extraordinary memoir!
Whether you are a basketball fan or not, this book should be read. It is an often painfully compelling and frighteningly true coming-of-age story of a young man and his abusive and mean-spirited father. Not only does Conroy tell what must be a difficult story for him, but he does it well.
