Five Really Great Sports Books

My Losing Season (Pat Conroy)LOSING SEASON

With books like The Great Santini and The Prince of Tides to his credit Pat Conroy is a giant in American literary circles.

My Losing Season focuses on his senior season as a starter at The Citadel and not only looks at life on the court but off the court as well.

The book not only takes a look at The Citadel’s disappointing season, but also Conroy’s run-in’s with his hapless coach and the very militaristic, very-white bred, and very southern culture at the school.

By focusing on not just what happens on the floor, Conway paints a full picture of a time and place that few authors of any genre have attempted to explore.
