Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION / WORLD - — Jayme Deer­wester

South Carolina lost one of its great­est sto­ry­tellers Fri­day with the death of au­thor Pat Con­roy, who suc­cumbed to pan­cre­atic can­cer at age 70.

He turned his dif­fi­cult youth, fam­ily trauma and his home state’s civil rights legacy into com­pelling best-sell­ing nov­els like The Great San­tini, The Prince of Tides, The Lords of Dis­ci­pline and Beach Mu­sic.
