Pat, Pat, is there any perversion you didn't visit in this book? Now I was with you on the Catholic issues, and murder was not out of the question, but the sicko father and the horrible scenes in the Tenderloin district moved into overwrought and in need of editing. Where was Nan on this manuscript? I agree with Kate that the Toad hardly seems like a kid, rather he sounds exactly like the 60 (?) year old author.
I would have given this book 5 stars for the amazing writing if it hadn't degenerated into absurdity at the end. Pat Conroy's descriptions make you want to read aloud the many lovely passages.
