Even though I'm West Coast, I can relate to Conroy's descriptions of the Catholic Church, Catholic Education, basketball, racism, lunacy, and the like. I was a VISTA volunteer, close to Conroy's desire to teach the underprivileged ("The Water Is Wide"). I did not serve in South Carolina (there were no openings). They sent me a few miles north... to Anchorage, Alaska. I've read "The Water Is Wide", "South of Broad", and "The Great Santini". I'm on my way this summer to celebrate his 70th birthday by reading his works. I'm 64 and am grateful for his books. Let's hope the Santini cast will reprise their roles for "The Death of Santini".

I have read every book Pat Conroy has written except "The Boo" and the cookbook. Mr. Conroy is an amazing writer and inspires me to write. I would someday like to make a living as an author and be half as god as he is.

I have loved Pat Conroy's writing and books since I first read
Prince of Tides. I am reading Beach Music for the 4th time
this summer. Keep writing! You are my favorite author!

Thank you so much Mr. Pat Conroy. You have
truly opened up my world. I don't think its an
accident that my maiden name is Buford and
you write so much about Beauford, SC

Your honesty in your writing is what kept me reading. I closed the book feeling as if I had met Pat Conroy.

I just had the pleasure of attending the Blue Bicycle Books presentation today with you and Catherine and meeting you. I left a copy of the Kiawah Conservancy's magazine, Naturally Kiawah, that I edit. We are so hoping that you might join us for our symposium on loggerhead turtles in Novembet. We plan to cook from your cookbook. If you cannot come, perhaps you might write a little something for the magazine or permit us to quote from Beach Music (with full attribution). I left my card with contact information. My fantasy is that I will answer the phone one day and a voice will say, "This is Pat Conroy." But now I know it will probably be Bernie Schein or it will be you but I will assume it is Bernie Schein and make a complete fool of myself! Thank you.

Mr. Pat Conroy has been my most favorite author for many years. To me, he is the best Southern novelist of all time and always will be. I send my deep love, admiration and appreciation to him.

I loved your newest book, but I've loved all your books, especially "Prince of Tides" and "My Losing Season." I continue to be deeply impressed and moved by your attempts at recovery from the devastation of your childhood and am deeply moved by your willingness to forgive. I share many of your experiences and appreciate more than I can say your ability to express the feelings that accompany those experiences. I love your poetic prose most of all and the speed with which you carry me through your writings; I do, however, always feel an emptiness and loneliness when I finish one of your books. Stay well, Pat Conroy; I'm so glad you are part of my life.

'Prince of Tides' changed my life. It is a step in my process of finally setting the demons free. Thank you Mr. Conroy.

My first Pat Conroy read was Beach Music in 1995 while enjoying the Atlantic Ocean in Nags Head, NC. My re-reads are countless. Your prose takes me to places that I enjoy and I re-read to glean more with each session of enjoyment. Passages have been read to others around me, just to share the incredible descriptions, feelings and visuals portrayed by your words. My most recent is The Death of Santini. Mr. Conroy, I am proud of you. I feel that I know you through your words and I sure hope that you have more books yet to come. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
