THE PAT CONROY COOKBOOK by Pat Conroy with Suzanne W. Pollak

THE GIFT OF VALOR by Michael M. Phillips

The Pat Conroy Cookbook by Pat Conroy with Suzanne Williamson Pollak "This book is the story of my life as it relates to the subject of food. It is my autobiography in food and meals and restaurants and countries far and near. Let me take you to a restaurant on the left bank of Paris that I found when writing The Lords of Discipline. There are meals I ate in Rome while writing The Prince of Tides that ache in my memory when I resurrect them. There is a shrimp dish I ate in an elegant English restaurant, which passed out Cuban cigars to all the gentlemen in the room after dinner, that I can taste on my palate as I write this..."

Phillips Based on a front page Wall Street Journal article that readers called "extraordinary," "profound," and "gripping," this is a powerfully affecting chronicle of a young Marine who sacrificed his life for his comrades-and became the first American nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Iraq War.
