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.

Mr. Conroy, I would just like to say that you are by far my most favorite author. I want to thank you for the countless hours of pure enjoyment you have provided me with. My first book I read of yours was the Prince Of Tides. I have now read that book 6 times, and it gets better every time I read it. I was born and raised on Edisto Island, South Carolina. My first and last love will always be the city of Charleston. As I read your books I can actually picture myself walking through the old slave market or bike riding the new Copper River Bridge. It is such a historic city that brings me so much joy. I look forward to your next novel. Any hints as to when that might happen? Again, thank you so much for all the hours of joy you have given me. You are such a fantastic author!!

Mr. Conroy,
I just discovered you yesterday while watching the "Great Conversations" episode you recorded with Maureen Corrigan while in Louisville, KY. I found your candor and insightfulness delightful.
