Mr. Conroy, Your writing is magic. Your words create vivid and dynamic pictures of the "low country" for me; I hope to someday visit to compare my images to your reality. I miss your characters when I finish a book. They give me hope and break my heart. I have read everything you have ever published (many times). Your viewpoints of military life, education, and mental health issues are meaningful to all who have participated as members or family of those groups. My sincere thanks for the pleasure of reading your work.

I just finished reading South of Broad and am in love with the book. Your delicious description of the city with its rich history and delicate charm have made going back for a late summer visit irresistable. Thank you for the most humorous, dramatic and inspiring reads of the summer.

I finished South of Broad this morning. First, the book is simply brilliant. I love how you tell me just how much you think I can stand about Steven and then move on, only to later come back and tell me a little more, because maybe I can tolerate just a little more angst, and back and forth until the very end: BAM! Here's the last few little details about Steven that you didn't mention earlier. Brilliant. I'm the first one on my block to read this so I can't discuss it with anyone (I'm dying to) yet. This is another masterpiece right up there with Beach Music and every other book you ever wrote. Thank you so so much! Don't wait 14 years to write the next one!

South of Broad is impatiently waiting for me to get my semester as a grad student AND an 8th grade teacher under control before I can pick it up. It is my reward to myself for starting my 10th year in the classroom! I CANNOT WAIT!
Take care of yourself, Pat! I eagerly anticipate your next 3 books and FINALLY meeting you. See you @ one of your signings!

Thank you Pat for this wonderful book, eagerly awaited by my family - and so worth the wait.

I am just finishing up Chapter 2 of South of Broad and my sides are aching from laughter. Not sure whether Leo's finding out his mother is a "professional virgin" or his catching Mrs. Poe under the "infield fly rule" is funnier. This is just beautifully written. I am a year younger than Pat and can relate to so many "period" references. Can't wait to read on. This will easily top the Great Santini and My Losing Season for humor and endearment to the characters. Congratualtions for a wonderful work. Peace.

Though I was born in "up country" I consider myself, above all else, a true southern lady of Charleston and thank you for "South of Broad". I have lived, smelled, tasted and endured all the events that unfolded in this novel! What a glorius story you have told of the "Queen". My praises are too many for only 700 characters!

No other author gives us what Pat does. The heart, soul, pain and humor of family/friend relationships. Live in WNC and appreciate the references -- but love Charleston and go whenever we can. A beautiful city with a beautiful history, including the passage of Pat Conroy - a man who has met and felled his demons and embraced what was good about his life and home.

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of South of Broad. Pat's books speak to my soul. I'll never forget the first time I read Prince of Tides and realized the heart of it was the story of my family also. He captured the raw nerves I have lived with so long. The few times I've tried to tell my story people don't get it and reading Prince of Tides gave me a reference point from with to start.
Thank goodness you write these painfully, beautiful books that help to open up the real world many of us dwell in.
