Just finished ' My Reading Life". You and I were born in the year of the "Boomers" inception. I wish you had written and I had read this book 40 years earlier. In any event I intend to read every work you reference in the order they appear and see what happens. If the result is life altering you can call the book a cookbook for the soul.

Mr. Conroy, you are the finest novelist this country has ever produced, period. I have read every book you've published, most of them several times, and I treasure each and every word. I had to "ration" my reading of South of Broad, because I knew if I didn't I would read it all in one day - and I wanted the experience to last! Please keep writing as long as you want to - you bring much joy to so many people with your work. Cheers ....

Your books; the language and images help to put words to many of my every day experiences. Thank you. Wish someone else other than Streisand had done Prince of Tides. Enjoyed the "movie" in my mind much better than what she did and butchered.

After finishing your new book at midnight last evening and surrounded by lots of sandy desert--and not a drop of water--I feel the need to take a trip east to my favorite city. Your wonderful prose captures what is truly magical about Charleston and its people--plus it's a great story too. Thank you for your wonderful works!

They say that if Dublin were destroyed, it could be rebuilt using Joyce's 'Ulysses' as a guide. I feel if Charleston needs rebuilding (another Hugo), I hope the library has an undamaged copy of 'South of Broad'.
Well done again Mr. Conroy and I will be thinking of you next Bloomsday!

I await you latest novel, however "My Losing Season" will always be my favourite novel. Your memories of your Jesuit school years remind me so much of mine with the Basilian priests. At times your relationship with your father, reminds me of mine.

Thank you for putting your thoughts into words.

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.

I just completed South of Broad and I am emotionally exhilarted and a wreck. Well done! Your words strike a resounding bell at the depth of my soul. I like many of your fans share similarities in life and background with you. That is one reason your books resonate so deeply. I am also positive that if I shared no background with you at all that your wods would still touch my marrow. Thank you for making Leo and his kindred souls come alive for me.

Mr. Conroy; one of your classmates at the "C" turned me on to your writings. As a former army bratt; wow; Santini did live in my home. My faith in God has gotten me through the hellish pass and somehow now I can live without regrets. Pray, get well; do not relinquish the gift you have been given to grace us with some form of sanity.

I visited Charleston for four years, the days before the sub base moved to King's Bay. The city claimed a part of me then. Do you ever sign books above Mason Dixon? My copy of South of Broad is waiting in Minneapolis.

I waited for this book for years and enjoyed it very much but I question some of the language you use. Today's books are so filled with trashy talk that I never expected to read in one of your books. I choose my books carefully for language usage and was so disappointed that you felt you needed to use certain words that most people find offensive. Just because they're commonly used doesn't mean they're ok to use. I've always loved your wonderful writing and wish you had foregone the street language.

Just finished your new book and absolutely loved it. Your characters are wonderful. I did find an error in that you mention porpoises in several places and I think you should have said Dolphins. Having lived in the lowcountry many years I can honestly say I have never seen a porpoise in the waters. Thank you forgiving us a fantastic new book that makes my heart yearn for the Lowcountry.

Pat,
I have been a fan for years and had read all of your books excpet "My Losing Season" until this past week. I loved it! I could relate since I too played college basketball, but had no business doing so. I was short on height and talent, so I had to make up for it in hustle. I have been to Fripp many times and hope to plan a trip there this summer to celebrate my 50th birhtday AND 7 years cancer remission! When crossing the bridge onto the island, I always think of "Prince of Tides" and say to myself....."Lowenstein, Lowenstein." Thanks for sharing your wonderful gift.

Have loved everything you've written through Beach Music. The hodgepodge of caustic wit, tinged with seeming madness in South of Broad falls flat and falls short.

Bravo and welcome back, Mr. Conroy. "South of Broad" is a true Pat Conroy novel - unforgettable characters, a heart wrenching story, passages and words that jump off the page. I love the way you embrace and celebrate the town eccentrics and honor your southern heritage in all of your books. Thank you once again for a GREAT read. I hope more is coming soon.

Pat,
Your book, The Great Santini, and your chapter in Unrooted Childhoods helped me to understand myself. I am the grand daughter, daughter, wife and mother of military men. It is all I know. Your writings and also Mary Edwards Wertch's book opened my eyes. As I read, I kept saying "Oh yes. Oh yes. Now I understand myself." Thank you so much.
