Vale Pat Conroy, author, poet and dream catcher.

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.

The first book of Pat Conroy I read was Beach Music .It was a recommendation of a United Airlines attendant as I checked-in in Atlanta.I was astounded by the book's story and the powerful language of the writer.It is a rare privilege when beauty of the words overpower story theme.So much so you are compelled to re-read words for their own beauty. When one finds such an author ,I read all the published works. I developed a appreciation of Pat Conroy's talent. Sure themes covered the Army ,the teacher the South in education ,sporting coach.The complex difficulties of a "Southener " in New York. The Southern stories that concluded in South of Broard. My search for the latest revealed sad news.USA has lost a great talent .

I started Lords of Discipline on May 15th and since then I have been hooked by Mr. Conroy's books. I have finished Lords of Discipline, South of Broad, and My Losing Season and hope to finish his collection by the end of summer. I only wish I learned of his books sooner and had the chance to meet this amazing writer. The way Mr. Conroy writes is like no other and I can't get enough of his characters, events, and emotion.

I just finished South of Broad this evening, and had never been to this site before. The book may be my all time fave and I was emotionally raw at its ending. Naturally when the page came up on my tablet, I just let out a cry and more tears came to know that so recently we lost this national treasure of a man. Kinda gives new meaning to the old cliche, all the good ones are taken. The characters in this last novel were so rich and flawed, beautifully human, especially Leo, a man I dream of meeting still, even though I related to all the major ladies in the book to one degree more or less, Molly, Fraser, Sheba and Starla. And I loved that he brought my home area into it, SF, city by the bay. Thanks Pat. God bless.

I am planning a trip to Charleston and Beaufort next spring and the first thing I did was go to Mr. Conroy's website where I learned of his passing. He will be truly missed. He could bring words and characters to life, whether mundane, happy or sad. I wrote to him telling him so and how much my mother and I enjoyed his books and how we laughed and laughed. He wrote a note back and to my mother which I treasure. Farewell to a great writer!

Rereading My Losing Season and thinking how much I miss this man and how much I wish there was one more book.

I read the article in the May 2016 edition of Southern Living about Mr. Pat Conroy. It moved me to enter this
note...I remember watching the movie "Conrack" when it was released in 1974, what a great production. I think I'll watch it again soon with my daughter, maybe it will instill some useful character in her, it did in me. Now I need to read the book.
