The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy Summary

A cadet encounters hazing and racism at an elite military academy in this novel from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Prince of Tides. As Will McLean begins his studies at the Carolina Military Institute, the American South is in turmoil over desegregation. An outsider to the harsh authoritarianism of the military, Will survives the school’s notorious freshman hazing, and avoids attention from its fabled and menacing secret society, the Ten. But when he is asked to mentor the school’s first black student, Will is drawn into the intense racial politics—and the threat of violence—simmering beneath the surface. Based on Conroy’s own military school experience and featuring his lush prose and richly drawn characters, The Lords of Discipline is a powerful story of a young man’s stand for justice and the friendship, love, and courage he finds along the way.

Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the Judge of His Creation by Marianne Strenger Summary

Do you know what the image of the antichrist is? Do you know what the symbolism of the number 666 of the antichrist means? When Jesus writes the letters to the churches in Revelation, He is writing to us now. Do you understand what He is expecting in us? Do you know what is His view of an overcomer in Him? Come, learn the great adventure of knowing what the symbolism is in this great book of the Bible. Understand Gods ways for us in Jesus Christ so that when the counterfeit spirit shows up, you wont be deceived and fall prey to Satans dark ways. Learn from the Holy Spirit to see through the darkness with His discernment.

Understanding Pat Conroy by Catherine Seltzer Summary

Pat Conroy’s work as a novelist and a memoirist has indelibly shaped the image of the American South in the cultural imagination. His writing has rendered the physical landscape of the South Carolina lowcountry familiar to legions of readers, and it has staked out a more complex geography as well, one defined by domestic trauma, racial anxiety, religious uncertainty, and cultural ambivalence. In Understanding Pat Conroy, Catherine Seltzer engages in a sustained consideration of Conroy and his work. The study begins with a sketch of Conroy’s biography, a narrative that, while fascinating in its own right, is employed here to illuminate many of the motifs and characters that define his work and to locate him within southern literary tradition. The volume then moves on to explore each of Conroy’s major works, tracing the evolution of the themes within and among each of his novels, including The Great Santini, The Lords of Discipline, The Prince of Tides, Beach Music, and South of Broad, and his memoirs, among them The Water Is Wide and My Losing Season. Seltzer’s insightful close readings of Conroy’s work are supplemented by interviews and archival material, shedding new light on the often-complex dynamics between text and context in Conroy’s oeuvre. More broadly Understanding Pat Conroy also explores the ways that Conroy delights in troubling the boundaries that circumscribe the literary establishment. Seltzer links Conroy’s work to existing debates about the contemporary American canon, and, like Conroy’s work itself, Understanding Pat Conroy will be of interest to his readers, students of American literature, and new and veteran South watchers.

À quelques milles du reste du monde by Pat Conroy Summary

1969. Dans une Amérique agitée par le mouvement pour les droits civiques, Pat Conroy accepte un poste d’enseignant sur une petite île isolée. L’endroit est envoûtant, presque désert et séparé du reste de la Caroline du Sud par un bras de mer. On ne peut s’y rendre qu’en bateau. Une poignée de familles afro-américaines vit ici mais l’île n’a plus d’avenir à offrir à ses enfants. Or le jeune professeur idéaliste découvre avec stupeur que ses élèves sont des laissés-pour-compte du système scolaire, que le niveau est dramatiquement bas et que les châtiments corporels ont toujours cours dans cette école. Pat s’acharne alors à faire rimer apprentissage avec plaisir et à donner à ces enfants une véritable ouverture sur le monde. Mais dans un Sud qui n’en a pas fini avec le racisme, il se heurte sans arrêt à l’immobilisme et au déni d’une administration qui fera tout pour le renvoyer. Dans son style enlevé et plein d’humour, Pat Conroy nous raconte son coup de cœur pour cette île à la beauté sauvage et pour dix-huit enfants qui avaient soif d’apprendre. L’année qui a changé sa vie. « Je devais écrire ce livre pour expliquer ce qui s’était passé et à quel point cela m’avait affecté. » Par le célèbre auteur du Prince des Marées, d’après une histoire vraie.

Beach Music by Pat Conroy,Francoise Cartano Summary

Installé à Rome avec sa fille Leah, Jack McCall s'est juré de ne plus revenir à Waterford, sa ville de Caroline du Sud, que le suicide de sa femme Shylla et le procès intenté contre lui par sa belle-famille l'ont poussé à quitter. Un télégramme lui annonçant l'agonie de sa mère va cependant le faire changer d'avis. Dès l'arrivée, face à son père, face aux parents de Shylla hantés par les souvenirs de la Seconde Guerre, face à son frère John, le déséquilibré mental, à son vieux copain Mike qui veut lui faire écrire un scénario pour Hollywood sur leurs années soixante, les souvenirs affluent... Des souvenirs où les drames de chacun renvoient aux commotions de l'Histoire, de l'Holocauste à la guerre du Viêtnam, à tout un passé chaotique vis-à-vis duquel Jack devra trouver le chemin de la réconciliation. Les forêts et les marécages de Caroline du Sud, les plages et les parties de pêche de l'enfance entourent d'une poésie sauvage cette saga aux mille ramifications, où le drame, l'émotion, le rire s'entremêlent à chaque page.

Lords of Strategy by Walter Kiechel Summary

Imagine, if you can, the world of business - without corporate strategy. Remarkably, fifty years ago that's the way it was. Businesses made plans, certainly, but without understanding the underlying dynamics of competition, costs, and customers. It was like trying to design a large-scale engineering project without knowing the laws of physics. But in the 1960s, four mavericks and their posses instigated a profound shift in thinking that turbocharged business as never before, with implications far beyond what even they imagined. In The Lords of Strategy, renowned business journalist and editor Walter Kiechel tells, for the first time, the story of the four men who invented corporate strategy as we know it and set in motion the modern, multibillion-dollar consulting industry: Bruce Henderson, founder of Boston Consulting Group Bill Bain, creator of Bain & Company Fred Gluck, longtime Managing Director of McKinsey & Company Michael Porter, Harvard Business School professor Providing a window into how to think about strategy today, Kiechel tells their story with novelistic flair. At times inspiring, at times nearly terrifying, this book is a revealing account of how these iconoclasts and the organizations they led revolutionized the way we think about business, changed the very soul of the corporation, and transformed the way we work.

Saison Noire by P. Conroy Summary

Jamais Pat Conroy n'oubliera cette saison 1966-1967. Nous sommes à Charleston, en Caroline du Sud. Dans la célèbre école militaire de La Citadelle, le jeune pensionnaire est soumis à une discipline de fer et cherche à se faire une place dans la société grâce au basket. Les triomphes sont rares et les défaites cuisantes, mais c'est à travers elles qu'il trouve sa voie. Car, s'il perd au basket, il remporte tous les prix en littérature. L'un et l'autre feront de lui le grand écrivain " sudiste " et l'homme accompli que l'on connaît aujourd'hui. Déjà un classique aux États-Unis, " Saison noire " est le récit tumultueux et passionné des années de formation d'un jeune garçon. Une histoire de réconciliation et de rédemption, où l'auteur du " Prince des marées " et de " Beach Music " prouve que la littérature offre peut-être la meilleure des revanches.

Le Prince des marées by Pat Conroy,Françoise Cartano Summary

Dans le sillage des grands noms de la littérature du Sud des États-Unis, Pat Conroy s'est imposé en 1986 avec un chef-d'oeuvre, Le Prince des marées, aujourd'hui réédité dans une traduction révisée. Au coeur des somptueux paysages maritimes de la Caroline du Sud, cette « histoire d'eau salée, de bateaux et de crevettes, de larmes et de tempêtes » fouille la mémoire d'une famille troublée, dans un Deep South encore marqué par la ségrégation raciale. Tom, Luke et Savannah Wingo ont été élevés à la dure, entre joies et tragédies, par un père pêcheur de crevettes, alcoolique et violent, et une mère fantasque et mythomane. C'est cette vie-là que va raconter Tom à la psychiatre Susan Lowenstein après la énième tentative de suicide de sa soeur, désormais installée à New York. Pour aider la thérapeute à sauver Savannah, Tom accepte de se replonger dans les souvenirs d'une enfance marquée par un terrible secret. Ses confessions, empreintes d'humour et d'émotion, vont faire revivre la bouleversante saga du clan Wingo. Eet peut-être leur offrir à tous une chance de rédemption. « Un tour de force qui a imposé Pat Conroy comme un immense conteur digne de William Styron ou de John Irving. » (L'Express)
