Dear Mr. Conroy,
Now I am readind 'The water is wide' for the 5th time. Heartwarming as ever. Thank you so much for your wonderfull books. The Great Santini reminded me of my own youth with a military-father unable to show what he felt but nevertheless loved us a lot. I am just looking for 3 more books that you wrote and then I believe I have them all.
I hope you're still in good health and that you are still enjoying life to the max. Once again, thank you very much.
Carla

Mr. Conroy - I would love for you to come to NYC and discuss writing. Btw, a few years ago I nicknamed my own father, "The Great Santini." Mom sickered and said, "that's a perfect name for him."

Mr.Conroy, you know a writer well. Your writing is exquisite. "My Reading Life" was beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration. There were so many things in the book that mirrored my feelings. Hope your daughter has returned to your life. By the way, I know Beaufort. My son is a Marine stationed there and I hope you're signing books on one of our future drives down South so that you can sign my book. Thanks again. God bless. Carmen

I've read most of your books and re-read a couple. Then my name sake son, joined the Marines and is now stationed at Beaufort, SC air station. When we visited we walked some of the same areas I am sure you walked. I know the inspiration you derived from the region. I could feel it. Can't wait to go back

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.

My nephew was showing me Charleston, SC and as we strolled down South Broad St. pushing my great nephew in his carriage I realized I was on South Broad! I had recently finished the novel. I can't tell you the thrill I recieved by this uncanny experience. You are a great writer Pat Conroy. When I first read you many, many years ago I said "yup, he's Irish!" Keep it going! My two books will be out this year - self published by Amazon.
Regards
Pat Condon

Dear Mr. Conroy,
I just finished your book My Reading Life. Thank you for writing it. I had never read any of your books before but this one is like a Bible of Classics to read. You have inspired me to read these and your books. Thank you for sharing yourself with your readers and for the honesty of your message. You truly are a Wordsmith of the highest caliber and I thank you for gracing your words on paper to share with us. With highest respect a new Conroy reader. MJ

I have just finished reading South of Broad, and while parts of the book are just majestic, I feel that towards the end of the book it lost its thread, and things were thrown in for effect, which I found disappointing, as I found the end of the book "too busy" so much so, that it lost its credibility. However, I love your writing and your books, perhaps South of Broad is just not a favourite. I await your next novel with baited breath.

Your words which so eloquently express the complexity of abused children , led me to make that my life's work. Mr. Conroy, having just finished South of Broad, thank you for sharing your bright light. It helped to guide my own bright light!

Pat we met in a book signing in the quad at Duke University during the last North Carolina Book Festival. I also watched you and Doug Marlette banter back and forth on stage during that same festival. I had the opportunity to meet Doug during the first Alamance Reads when his book "The Bridge" was the featured book. Doug was living in Hillsborough, NC a mere 10 miles from my home in Mebane. I was greatly sadden at his untimely death in an automobile accident. From reading your work, Doug's work and the work of several NC writers; I tried my hand at writing essays for a web page called "The Partial Observer" and my hometown news paper. We are very similar in age and that, perhaps in one of my draws.
