I just finished reading "The Prince of Tides." The eloquent fluidity of the book helped to break up the intensity of the storyline. I am forever moved by the Tale of Wingo. Rarely does a book create such a catharsis. In memory of Luke Wingo - a true American.

You are a rare modern-day writer that understands Southern life and what it means to be born and raised in the Deep South. Families are institutions and some members may end up in institutions. Being part of a family is difficult at best. To me you understand the helplessness that a child feels over his precarious position in the structure of that family. You do a wonderful job and you enlighten as well as entertain your readers. Please continue. Deepest regards, Maribeth

Never before has there been a writer who could capture my thoughts and feelings about the tragedies and tumultuous events of my life. How do you articulate my reactions to these events of which your characters must overcome? The thoughts you convey are thoughts that I have such trouble expressing at times. I cry often when reading your novels; they are a sweet release from the chasm that life can create. You and your writing make it worth the experience and remind me that there is a fight worth fighting and things do have a way of working out. Your novels have opened another chapter of my life; there is pronounced freedom in each word of every character. I see bits of myself in each of them. I believe God led me to your books for a sense of belonging and to begin healing. Thank you!

Oh, that Pat Conroy had nine lives instead of one (the other eight much more easily lived, of course). I am now 71 years old and rereading all of your books while caring for my spinal cord injured husband who is a year younger that you are, Pat. I'm cooking using recipes from your cookbook, and writing out my book list from Reading Life. No other author has so deeply touched emotions in me as you have. Although my own story is dissimilar, it is still so very like your own. There will be many crowns for you in heaven because you have helped far more people with your writing than you can know on this earth. I am re-reading your books in the order written and am preserving them for my daughter who loves you too. Thank you, Pat Conroy for bringing beauty out of tragedy with your words.

Right now I'm reading "My Reading Life" and cannot put it down.I've also read Prince of Tides. Your disclosing of your personal life in "MY Reading Life" means a lot to me. I wasn't a great student and I've been dealing with depression for years. Hearing about someone else's struggles helps me a lot. I find myself relating to you and am being more encouraged to look for answers in books. I will look into the rest of your books to read. After all it's never too late. Thanks again.

I read "The Prince of Tides" two years ago and it had a powerful impact on me, and became of one of all-time favorite books. Your use of the language is wondrous! I currently am enjoying "My Reading Life" and devouring every word! Obviously, I am a big fan!!!

I just finished listening to "South of Broad" and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I'm hoping to read more of your work in the near future.

Pat-- My first exposure to your work was when I was 9 and by accident watched part of the movie "The Great Santini". Still remember the scene of the Great S. pounding the BB on his son's head after he lost a game of 1 on 1. Haunted me for years. Just now, at age 38, in the midst of "My Losing Season". Read some of your interviews online and your dad's eulogy-- sad to know that he never gave the Jacket or sent the flowers. I've been touched (and angered) by the true suffering that is behind the ability to write these works-- thanks for your courage in sharing your life with faceless millions unknown to you-- somehow it lessens our own suffering. Hope by God's grace you've been able to really forgive your father--perhaps your life's largest task.

Just read: 'My Losing Season'. Great book. Also read 'Lords of Discipline' and 'The Boo'. I am a native Tarheel, and a West Point grad, so I have much with which to identify with your past. We part ways politically, but that in no way affects my admiration for your writing. Thank you for the courage to venture into this profession. James Cockerham
