All the Time in the World

My taste in reading material is wide and varied: SF/fantasy/"speculative fiction", mysteries (police procedurals, mostly), history, fanfic, straight fiction, smutty vampire books, biographies, poetry, cereal boxes, assembly instructions, the fine print, and your mind.

The Prince of Tides

The Prince of Tides - Pat Conroy This is a re-read - I first encountered Pat Conroy when Life magazine published an excerpt of his first book, The Water is Wide, which details his experiences as a schoolteacher on one of the sea islands off South Carolina.

The Prince of Tides is a more mature book, but Conroy's love of the South is evident both in that earlier memoir and in this novel.
