The Prince of Tides

All Wingos of Colleton, South Carolina share one heritage . .. shrimp fishing, poverty and the searing memory of a single terrifying event – the source of Tom Wingo’s self-hatred and of his sister Savannah’s suicidal despair. To save himself and Savannah, Tom confronts the past with the help of New York psychologist Susan Lowenstein. As Tom and Susan unravel the bitter history of his troubled childhood, in episodes of grotesque humour, poignant lyricism and shattering violence, the door opens vividly onto a world peopled by a cast of colourful, eccentric and unforgettable characters.
