Conroy wrote The Great Santini, and The Prince of Tides, which were both made into feature films. Conroy's book, My Losing Season, is now out in paperback. It's a memoir about playing basketball for the Citadel Military College and how it transformed his life. Conroy was point guard and captain of the Citadel Bulldogs.
