Every time I walk into a bookstore, the first thing I look for is a new Pat Conroy novel. At last there is one. I will cherish every word and pray I do not have to wait as long for the next one. In my humble opinion you are the greatest American novelist of our time.

Pat, I can't wait to stop at the book store tonight after work to pick up your latest. I fell in love with your writing and stories with "The Water is Wide" when it first came out, and even took a tour of your old island, Daufuskie. I, too, was disappointed I couldn't get a ticket for your Atlanta appearance, but was fortunate enough to meet you and have you sign my cookbook when you came to Decatur. Like you I have a low country soul, and am so looking forward to revisiting Charleston via your words. May we continue to be blessed with your books.

The first time I read Beach Music, I cried and could hardly finish. The second time, years later, I knew what to expect, but the result was the same. I look forward to your latest work.

I want you to know that when I saw The Great Santini years ago I was amazed at how you depicted military family life. I related to Ben in the story as the oldest child and the one to catch hell first. My father was in the Air Force and we moved 8 times by the time I was in fifth grade. He was also very strict and very scary to me. I did a lot of therapy in my early adult life and confronted my scary father and we now are close. He now worries about what I think of him. Life is such a lesson. I truly am who I am because of the experience. Thank you for showing me that I am not alone in my travels in this life of the human experience.

Sincerely,
April

The strangest thing just happened. I was talking with a new friend of mine about books she is reading. She's never heard of you before (she's in her early 20's, me late 30's). I told her you were one of my favorite authors and I'd bring her some of your books to read.

Half an hour later she emailed me saying she read in her B&N and Borders newsletters that you had a new book released today and wondered if I knew about it.

What a coincidence. I had no idea you were even writing a new novel and here I am recommending you to someone on the very day it is released.

I'll mark that down as good karma.

Your writing makes me feel at home, especially, in the low country. Looking forward to reading "South of Broad." As a military brat, we're linked. As a Marine, I cannot think of anyone else I would like to see in attendance at our reunion; and, hopefully, write about 'old grunts' getting back together. (3rdBn, 4thMar: China, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, & Iraq, among others - Crowne Royal Hotel, San Diego, 9/16-20/09).

Pat-
You inspired and encouraged me when I was a young woman starting out in television during the 70's. You critiqued my columns for Charlotte Magazine with your then good friend who was the Editor in Chief. I think of you often, but realize you may not remember me. I was a friend of late great Doug Marlette's wife, who also moved to Atlanta when I was living there. I missed our reunion by not attending their barbecue one summer. You have always been the standard by which I measure not only my writing, but my courage in the face of adversity. I hope you remember, but if you do not...Know this. You changed my life for 30 years ago. You seem to sense we had pain in common.

8/11/2009 - What happended with the GMA show this AM, I have watched from 7am to 8:40 am, and had to leave for work - still no mention of the most important interview ever PAT CONROY-----Eash and every book has been wonderful, the story line is so real and keeps your interest from work one to the last, I also think that the things that you do stand up publicly for are very worth while,
