The piercing, iconic semi-autobiographical novel of a domineering father and ambitious son, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Prince of Tides Step into the powerhouse life of Bull Meecham. He s all Marine fighter pilot, king of the clouds, and absolute ruler of his family. Lillian is his wife beautiful, southern-bred, with a core of velvet steel. Without her cool head, her kids would be in real trouble. Ben is the oldest, a born athlete whose best never satisfies the big man. Ben s got to stand up, even fight back, against a father who doesn t give in not to his men, not to his wife, and certainly not to his son. Bull Meecham is undoubtedly Pat Conroy s most explosive character a man you should hate, but a man you will love. Praise for The Great Santini Stinging authenticity . . . a book that won t quit.
