THE DEATH OF SANTINI The Story of a Father and His Son

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dick Hill

Biography & Memoir • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Listeners will be moved as they listen to Conroy’s latest memoir, which delves deeply into his dysfunctional family of origin, especially his experiences with his abusive father, Don, a U.S. Marine. The humorous and gut-wrenching prologue, read by Conroy himself, transitions perfectly to Dick Hill’s delivery of the soul-searching memoir. Hill inhabits all the Conroy family members well, but his shifts between father and son when the two lived in Atlanta after the parents’ divorce is where the story soars. Conroy bares his soul with each of his books, and even more so here. He often uses personal experience for his fictional work, such as THE GREAT SANTINI, which divided the family when first written but ultimately brought them closer together once the movie was made.
