Mr. Conroy: I've just finished reading South of Broad, and while I need to re-read this incredible novel, I will be taking my copy to the public library this afternoon so that others can share the emotional pleasures of this outstanding work. Thank you so much.

Your prose is poetry...

And knowing every street, store, and mansion mentioned made it all the more interesting. I think it's time to take a walk downtown again and discover the beauty and mysteries that I so often take for granted... Thank you!

Just finished South of Broad. How wonderfully expressive is your writing! I got lost in that book for two days, and left the dust bunnies pilel up, and the meals uneaten, and the garden unweeded. What a trip!! Please, please keep writing! You are a joy to great prose lovers everywhere!
Please come to Vermont in the Fall! We would love to see you and meet you here!

I gasped with delight when I discovered your latest novel on our way to our favorite Oregon beach this week. I read it nonstop with such pleasure. Thank you so much. I have tried with little success to describe the culture of the South to my Pacific Northwest children. Your beautiful words describe so well the traditions and the beauty of my family's place of origin. Although I am a Westerner geographically, my family's roots are Southern and your books take me "home." Best wishes for your continued success and a long, contented life.

I have just completed South of Broad. Pat Conroy is the most brilliant southern writer of our generation, possibly ever. You are a truly gifted author. Please do not wait another 14 years to amaze us with your gift.

Have been reading Beach Music every August since purchasing it on Fripp during a family vacation. Picked up South of Broad this weekend, anticipating another great Conroy book. Thanks for years of enjoyment, you're the tops!

I am a huge fan and a pathetic re reader of every book you have ever written with Lord of Discipline being my hands down favorite book and favorite first line. I just finished South of Broad having started it last night, and I liked it. Thank you for writing again, I have missed your words. I don't have many characters left so thank you.

I just finished your South Broad. I wish I had the description of words the way you do. All I can say is Thank You so much. The ending was so great. Pat, everything you touch with a pen turns to Party. My friend please do not ever stop writing, this was a long 14 years. Mr. Conroy if there were Oscars for Books you would not have enough space to put them. Bless You. JoAnna

SOUTH OF BROAD just arrived yesterday and by page 40 I wanted to tell you how much I love it and am so grateful you've written again! Have enjoyed reading your wife's books [all of them] and have been a fan of Anne Rivers Siddons since PEACHTREE ROAD!

I would never dream of telling YOU how to write a book! You have the most beautiful prose! I love how you phrase your words. Having been through a divorce, I cracked up when you described it as part self evisceration and part auto de fay! No one would get that unless they've been through it!
Glad to have you back! Also loved that one of the reviewers called you a great American novelist! Knowing your life~that has to warm your heart!
