Mr. Conroy,
I have been reading the great Santini and I have to say, I was fascinated. Because I had similar experience in my childhood. Nevertheless I joined the Army and after 34 years of service I retired recently, it is a bit strange, isn`it? To say we are brothers in spirit would be pretentious, of course, but in a way I feel like this. From Germany my warm regards and may God always protect you.

I just watched The River is Wide. I still have tears in my eyes. Did you keep in touch with any of the children you taught on the island?

Conrack touched me in a way an adolescent girl could not verbally describe. As an adult Prince of Tides was a view into my memories and experiences. Your truth is so many people's truth. Thank you from a Carolina born girl.

I've had a love affair with your magniloquent prose since I was 14 and read Prince of Tides. However, Beach Music is my true lover. And goddamnit Pat, you better not die before I meet you or at least are in your presence for a fleeting moment of quiet desperation and bashful imposition! Are you one of those Southerners who is scared of big cities like Los Angeles? Even this hard-hearted city has hidden pockets of passion awoken by your authentic love of women, cooking, and the South. God bless Pat Conroy.

I just read your "My Writing Life" and now have a great book list! I have read all your books and think this is another great one, mores especially since it gives reading insight! Thank you.

Mr. Conroy, I just finished "devouring" MY READING LIFE and wanted to share how much I adore this story and your writing style. No words can express my feelings through each wonderful chapter so beautifully written. I read your other books and saw two of the movies. Although you wrote that Daufuske Island was your last teaching job, I think you would be an exceptional teacher and mentor. Your author references provided me with new literature for exploration. If you visit the Chicago area in the future, I hope that I will find out and be able to hear you lecture or attend a book signing. It is unfortunate that your Contact site received spam - I would like to share further thoughts . . . perhaps this message will find its way to your attention. I'm on LinkedIn and Facebook.

Mr. Conroy, I know you've written about Joe Monte before, and I thought you might want to contact Fred Shelly to get a copy of the newsletter, to see what other people write. As you probably know, Mr. Joseph Monte will retire at the end of this school year after 50 years. In order to recognize his retirement, let me ask you to write a few words about what Mr. Monte's work has meant to the school and to you personally.

I'm 17 years old, my mom got me into Pat's books and I'm inlove with South of Broad. Beach Music would have to be my second favorite. PAT CONROY, COME TO BEAUFORT. I MUST SEE YOU IN PERSON AND YOU MUST SIGN MY BOOKS!

Mr. Conroy, I fell in love with your writing after reading The Water is Wide (yes, I got the title correct!) many years ago. It took me this long, but last week I finally experienced beautiful SC... Fripp, Beaufort, Charleston as well as Savannah Ga. I now share your love for the low country and thank you for bringing it to life in your books. God Bless!

Loved the Prince of Tides... Especially loved at the end when he says" But it is the Mystery of Life that Sustains Me Now". Such a powerful statement! Love it! Thank you!
