The Great Santini

by Conroy, Pat

Condition: Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket


Atlanta: Old New York Book Shop Press. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1989. Reprint; Signed by Author. 1/4 Cloth. 0937036005 . A Reprint edition in Near Fine condition with slight corner bumping, housed in an alike dust-jacket that features little soiling. The volume is signed and inscribed by author Pat Conroy on the title page; Pat Conroy's first novel is the look into the family life of a fighter pilot. Bull Meecham is the epitome of the Marine officer — as tough a disciplinarian at home as at the base. Rebellion, or even difference of opinion, is not tolerated. Objections are met with the statement "The Great Santini has spoken." As the oldest child, Ben takes the brunt of his father's criticism. His attempts to stand up for himself or his mother and sister are contemptuously dismissed. His feelings for his father are a mixture of hate and fear, reluctant pride in his prowess, and unacknowledged love. - from the dust jacket .
