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.

I must admit, I had this book on the shelf for YEARS, I read all his other works. I am a big fan. I would buy a Conroy book comprised of random, dis-jointed sentances just to bask in the way he uses the English vocabulary. Anyway, I had just finished "South of Broad but needed more Conroy word drug. So, off the shelf it comes! "lOSING SEASON" IT WAS! I am not a basketball fan, I understand the basics of the game, I might watch some of the Final Four March Madness is there is not a good John Wayne or Elvis movie on. This is FAVORITE Conroy Book!! Just beating out "Beach Music and Prince of Tides" Every parent should read this book. Words are powerful things..Mr. Conroy makes all his "word bullets" hit the target exactly where he wants, when he wants. A great book!

Thank you Mr. Conroy.

Best seller by well known author. Not fiction but a discussion of his life growing up in S.C. Excellent reading.

Pat Conroy scores again with his My Losing Season (pun intended). His autobiographical account of his senior basketball season is as haunting, charming, and alluring as his strongest fiction novels.
