Cassandra King was leading a quiet life as a teacher and novelist when she met one of the legendary figures of Southern Literature: Pat Conroy. Their two-year friendship blossomed into a long-distance relationship, and they ultimately married, ending his 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 2016.
In Tell Me A Story: My Life with Pat Conroy the woman he called "King Ray" looks back at her love affair with a natural-born storyteller whose lust for life was fueled by a passion for literature, food, and the Carolina Lowcountry that was his home. As she reflects on their relationship and the years they spent together, Cassandra reveals how the marshlands of South Carolina ultimately cast their spell on her, too, and how she came to understand the convivial, generous, funny, and wounded flesh-and-blood man beneath the legend - her husband, the original Prince of Tides.
“Tell Me A Story is breathtakingly tender, heartbreakingly true...The best memoir I’ve read.” — Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author of The Beach House Reunion
