Cassandra King Conroy ¶ Tell Me A Story book

Novelist when she met Pat ConroyTheir friendship bloomed into a tentative long distance relationship Pat and Cassandra ultimately married ending Pat's long commutes from coastal South Carolina to her native Alabama It was a union that would last eighteen years until the beloved literary icon’s death from pancreatic cancer in 2016In this poignant intimate memoir the woman he called King Ray looks back at her love affair with a natural born storyteller whose lust for l I was torn between giving this book 5 stars like most Goodreads’ reviewers did vs 3 stars like a few outliers did one or two even less The difference at least for me is if you’re a huge admirer of Pat Conroy – one of the great writers of Southern Literature – you can’t read enough about him And you can’t help but be drawn to a memoir written by his wife of 18 years whom he loved deeply Cassandra King a novelist in her own right They found each other in mid life after divorces so who doesn’t love a story about having another chance at happiness? The problem I had was with the prose There’s a great deal of Pat Conroy’s dialogue uoted often ill matched to a legend of exuisite prose I didn’t want to be disappointed that this larger than life writer and man was uite foul mouthed Perhaps I expected too much of the prose? Except that the last 50 pages rose to a higher emotional level and beautiful prose when it seemed the author’s immense grief and sorrow came pouring out of her Regrettably that style was not consistent throughout or I would have blogged about it on my blog about beautiful fiction and memoirs To be fair there’s a lot of good things to say about Tell Me A Story It reads like one big story of many many stories that include how their story began as a two year friendship over the phone after meeting at a literary conference in King’s then hometown Birmingham Alabama Somewhere after that which remains a “mystery” to the author their friendship changed to something else What stands out is how many good genuine loyal friendships Pat Conroy had and then they both had He an extrovert she a very private person The memoir reads easily so you’ll find yourself finishing the nearly 400 pages uickly Conclusion interesting read but the prose didn’t rise to what I’d expected
