When people ask me for my biography, I tell them the books I have read. The quotation is from Russian poet Osip Mandelstam, but it might serve equally well as the rubric for Pat Conroy's new memoir. My Life in Books recapitulates a long, fruitful career of reading; from the hit-and-miss forays of a neophyte to his encounters with masterpieces that have shaped his life.

Alarms always go off in my head when I see the author's name displayed in type that is significantly larger than that of the title. Silly me, I had assumed this was a new Conroy book. Wrong. It...

Pat Conroy has constructed a book about his life that is part memoir, part short stories and captures his love of words in such a wonderful way. The fact that he loves books so much is what drew me to this one. He beautifully describes the people that inspired him to read and how that led to writi...
