Conroy, Pat. My Losing Season. New York: Nan A. Talese, 2002.
In this book, author Pat Conroy tells us about his career as a basketball player starting from the age of nine until the age of twenty-one. First he talks about his prep years, when he developed a passion for the sport that few had. Then he talks about his college career with the Citadel Bulldogs, a military school in Charleston, South Carolina. He takes us through the constant struggles he went through, while playing for this very strict military university.
" I found a joy, unrecapturable beyond the realn of speech or language, and I lost myself in the pure, dazzling majesty of my sweet, swift game."
" The simple fact of me being on the court jeopardized any possibility of victory for us. I was a bottom feeder and born second - stringer."
