Greetings! I just finished reading My Reading Life on audio (with you as the reader) and had to stop during my roadtrip to buy the book. Fantastic! I love books about books by people who love them.

At the end of the audio there was a short interview with you where you talked about everyone loving a story. So true! And that you were always reading for good stories. I'd like to be presumptive in suggesting one (and would love to know what you think of it after reading it): Island of the World by Michael O'Brien. That ranked one of the best books I've ever read -- one that changes you.

Thanks for sharing your talent and stories!

Please Pat, I am begging you, COME TO THE BAY AREA! Loved Death of Santini so much. Bought audio and regular, and book for my IPAD. We need a splash of low country out here! Much love to you and your family this new year.

I just finished, Death of Santini, I was amazed that all the children forgave their parents and loved them so strongly. I have lost sleep over this book remembering incidents from my life. My Irish dad was very similar to your Santini. This was a moving book and hard to put down. I love your honest writing.

Pat, heard you on Diane Rehm the other day. Remember that your father wouldn't let you come up to the UofM when you play Toledo? Now I understand the situation better. I should have come down to the game. Dan

I've just finished reading "The Death of Santini". It's another superb offering from Pat. I've been a fan of Pat's since the release of "The Lords of Discipline", my personal favorite. Mr. Conroy's affinity for the Carolina Low Country strikes a special Chord with me. All of his works are powerful and very poignant. Thanks and All the Best.

Love The Death of Santini and My Reading Life. Love the Forsyth County library and their audio selection . Other wise I would never have been introduced to your books. Plan on reading all your other books. The difference in what you remember about you parents and what your siblings remember reminds me of me and my brothers. The difference being my brothers thought mom was so mean I as the the baby girl, very pampered, remember being scared of her wrath but was tortured by my brother 6 years older than me. Sitting on my chest hovering over me calling me a cry baby and saying " spit on me ". And me spitting on myself. You have great courage to tell your story and deal with all the criticism. Long winded thank you! DD

Hi Pat,
I just now finished "The Death of Santini"... As with all your books I was spellbound. I am glad to finally begin to understand the truth of your family, which is an inspiration to us all, in some familiar ways. I have a peculiar Southern family. I learned early to believe the lies we pretend to believe and to keep the required secrets. It has taken me my whole life to undo all the knots to arrive at my own understanding of the people who raised me. An only child, I had no one to compare stories with. In fact, it wasn't until my forties, that I began to understand WHY I moved so far away from them to live my life. When I read "Prince of Tides" it opened the door. You are a Master story-teller and a dream-weaver of words of pure gold. Thank you for sharing your life with us.

Well Pat you did it again with your latest book. It is the best one yet. I had a difficult time with the sarcastic banter between you & your dad but this became clearer after his passing. This coping mechanism in some strange way may have helped you both to heal. He knew, of course but pride often keeps some from their truth. Happy Xmas - Stay well ;)

Pat,
I have just finished The Death of Santini. What a great book as all the others were. I had to wait a month to get a copy from the library as i am too conservative to buy one! Cant wail for the next one. I think Beach Music is my favorite.
