7 Musings about South of Broad, by Pat Conroy

  1. A leading character’s name is “Starla.”
  2. The editor was sloppy.  It is missing some necessary commas.
  3. The prose is so overwrought that it makes most soap operas seem like documentaries.
  4. It paints an accurate picture of Charleston’s caste system.
  5. It is a fast read.
  6. Pat Conroy can do better than this.

A fine read for a Saturday afternoon, but get it from the library.
