I too, have a lost granddaughter & have never figured out why she left the family. My prayers are with you. I have loved all of your books & met you once in Washington DC at a book fair.

Pat, I Googled "Best basketball books" and "My Losing Season" came up in a blogger's top 10. Read it, loved it. Agreed with the blogger. The big difference between my high school coach and Mel is that my high school coach could make the King's English sound like profanity while Mel had to resort to the four-letter variety. I could relate to the story of throwing the perfect behind-the-back pass and getting benched for it, and loved your recollection of the no-dunk rule. I particularly enjoyed the parts about the joy of playing defense, playing against more gifted athletes and the rise (and occasional fall) of the Green Weenies. Thanks for sharing your memories.

"South of Broad" was an outstanding book and it left me very hungry. The "Prince of Tides" came along and satisfied that hunger for awhile. I am now beginning another... you are the exquisite word master.

Dear Mr. Patrick Conroy,
Pop art is a reflection of reality. Great art changes reality. Reading Beach Music, Prince of Tides, My Losing Season, and watching The Great Santini movie, changed reality. I ended up in Arl., Va., and bought my first ball, bat, and glove, and basketball ever at 50+ yrs.!!? Tom Wingo, in Tides, loves his kids, wants them to do well... so I did. I signed up for a league, (we took 1st place this year, and I was voted All Stars Team again 1st place.) I used Tom Wingo as a mentor to do little league coaching. I played my first 3on3 basketball court last week, and hope to do more than one game this year with senior basketball. I dribble down the sidewalk like the teen in My Losing Season. Reality changed. Gonzaga H.S.? Col. Conroy? Great books!

Mr. Conrack

I have spent many hours in the car over the past several years and am happy to find your audiobook on itunes. My favorite is Prince of Tides. The reader was simply wonderful. As an Engineer grad from The Citadel, and a lover of all things Charleston, I want to thank you for letting me live in the city and see its beauty while in the car. I look forward to your next novel.
Thank you

Mr. Conroy. I am certain I am not alone in claiming "Prince of Tides" as my story - but, unfortunately I experienced the father/son dynamic you have so eloquently written about in many of your novels, but most especially in "Prince of Tides." As my wife and I prepare for our annual winter excursion to Hilton Head, I find my tattered paperback version (I do not touch my signed first edition) and prepare to read for the 20th or so consecutive year what I believe to be the "great American novel" of my lifetime. Thank you, sir, for providing the impetus for me to attempt to understand why I became the man I was, and to undergo successful counseling to become the man I now am.

Mr. Conroy,

Your writing has done more than drawn me in, its honesty and poetry make me want to express those things that comprise me. I am still searching for those ways, but for now I blog. This is how you have inspired. ramblingteever.blogspot.com /2012/12

Each word from you is a treasure, thank you for making me rich.

Pat, I have loved your work from the first time I picked it up. My favorites are The Great Santini, The Prince of Tides and The Lords of Discipline. You have been an inspiration to me about family travesties and forgiveness. Thank you.
