I just finished "South of Broad Street" - a long book but I finished it in 2 days as I couldn't put it down. I've read all your books but this one brought tears to my eyes because I recently lost one of my dear friends who was my host during a visit to Fripp Island. She was Southern to the core and introduced me to all the good things of the South. Look forward to reading your next book. Saw the interview on Writing Out Loud on the local Tulsa TV Station a year or so ago and though - "I wish I could have been there too - talking with you and Teresa"

I am so grateful to you for giving us another of your wonderful books. You are my favorite author and I have waited not to patiently for this new book. South of Broad is as good as it gets. I can't begin to tell you how much your books have meant to me. I have read them over and over; Beach Music is my favorite, but I haven't finished South of Broad. Please don't keep us waiting so long for your next book. I can't wait to go back to Charleston and look at it through Leo's eyes.

South of Broad is like a very rich dessert. I have to stop every couple of pages to digest this glorious confection. I hope you will create many more wonders such as this. All of your books have been one of a kind.

I wish I could read a book you wrote every week... I'd even read a grocery list you wrote. I also live almost in Ninety Six... great little community... thanks for mentioning it.

I loved South of Broad. I love all of your books, but this one was so long in coming that I cherished it. I eagerly await the next book from both you and Cassandra King. And I love your crab cake recipe!!

South of Broad is another delicious example of Mr. Conroy's wonderful talent. I laughed and cried to the end. Thank you!

I have read all Mr. Conroy's books (except The Boo) and have enjoyed them very much. I just finished South of Broad and loved it. The descriptions of conditions in San Fransisco will haunt me. Thank you Mr. Conroy--I didn't think another book could touch my heart the way Beach Music did--but South of Broad will stay with me for a long time.

I was visiting a Barnes & Noble and a gentleman picked up the very last copy of the book in the store. Then he made a stupid decision: he returned the book to the display table. That is when I picked it up and I am go glad I did. I have not read any of Mr. Conroy's other books, but this one really touched me. Chapter 15 "The Tenderloin" is perhaps the novel's most moving. That chapter is the first but not the last one that brought tears to my eyes. So do yourself a favor and pick up this book and read it. Just be sure that you catch the tears before they hit the page.

Curses! I have not finished South Of Broad! However, I was enjoying glancing through the comments here until someone posted major details about the end of the book! Readers beware of spoilers!!!!

Read Faulkner for years for pleasure, then I discovered you. Loved The Boo, I knew and served with lots of Santinis (no offense) I know the Water is Wide (I teach school at a Juvenile Correctional Facility) the Lords Of Discipline reminded me of VMI; Beach Music and Prince of Tides made me Cry (Lots of Times)...I admire your Prose and Characters so much...Wish I could paint a picture with words the way you do.
