I met Pat IN PERSON in 2005 when he won the F.Scott Fitzgerald Award in my hometown. Of course I felt I knew him well through the writings I had come to revere. I had a chance to talk with him, his wife and a couple of grandchildren. I mentioned I had seen "Conrack", a musical based on his book, the Water is Wide. A grandchild said: "Grandad I didn't know you could dance!" He signed two books for me, including my tattered copy of The Boo and the evening, in spite of a vicious thunderstorm I had to go out into, was a precious little gem in my memory, as is his new publication of "Low Country Heart". Thanks, Pat, for decades of losing myself in your stories.

I know it is difficult to say goodbye to Pat, but not updating his biography to include his passing feels disrespectful. ...an oversight that hopefully will soon be corrected.

Reply to webmaster We 'spoke' over the email. Thank you. I did update the bio even though it was hard to acknowledge what happened... This is Mihai Radulescu a board member of Pat Conroy Literary Center and Pat's agent... www.patconroyliterarycenter.org

Just finished Low County tonight. It was a Christmas present from my husband. So love this man's writing...it takes my breath away. Wish there was more. Will share passages from the book with my book club friends.

He is the only writer whose book endings make me cry, wanting the book to go on forever. "A Lowcountry Heart" has done the same.

Pat is the only author I ever wanted to own every book he wrote. Currently ordered The Boo and reading A LowCountry Heart from our local library. I want to get a pen and paper and write down the names of all authors he mentions.
I loved the way Pat did not churn out books. Each book was like that perfect piece of sea glass you find on occasion. The stories came from his soul. I hope you will find a way to finish the few he speaks of "still in me". May God richly bless you this season as I know the first holiday season is difficult. Last weekend I sang Christmas in Heaven and today as I sing it again, I will certainly think of Pat.

Just about to finish A Low Country Heart. When I started reading the book I was let down that it was not one of his novels with drama, humor, and poetry. Then as I got into the book, I realized I was in a 1-on-1 conversation with Pat filled with drama, humor, and poetry. Now as I near the end of the book, I have the same feeling that I have had with every Conroy book - I don't want it to end.

Vale Pat Conroy, author, poet and dream catcher.
Thank you and bless you for your wonderful books that have enriched so many lives, not the least of them mine. 1945-forever ...

Am I mistaken or is the deathbed scene between John
Hardin and his mother in Beach Music - shoving morphine
pills down her throat that she can't swallow - duplicated
in The Death of Santini with Carol and Don?

I'm so thankful I was able to meet and chat with Pat last October at his birthday celebration. He was so warm and engaging when he really didn't have to be...it was natural for him to talk with another service brat. We have lost a national treasure on the order of Mr. Hemingway. I hope his family will be able to publish the book he was working on about his high school teaching days. If anything like "The Water is Wide" it will be quite a hoot! God bless Pat...and his family.
