For readers who love Pat Conroy’s fiction, this memoir will be a resonant portrait of the author using his love of basketball to show his journey through the sport and his teammates to his career as a writer. The fictional military father, “the great Santini,” who inhabits several of his stories is vividly real, but so is the camaraderie of his teammates, viscerally so. Jay O. Sanders is Conroy from the first page. He speaks so completely and convincingly in Conroy’s voice that only from the author interview at the end would listeners know otherwise. The banter of the team is fast and sure. The interior monologues are stirring and achingly heartfelt. Sanders changes pace with precision as he keys on the text’s changes. An amazing performance.
