Pat, Thank you for addressing domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault in your novels. You capture the best and worst in your characters, allowing them to be both monsters and heroes at the same time. I just gave South of Broad back to the library on post after several weeks with the Toad. I miss him already. Please get Hollywood remake the Great Santini, one of the greatest books of all time.

Pat,
You may remember I sent you a letter after reading "My Losing Season" about my escapades at Mercer during 1963-67. Anyway, Mercer is putting together a historical (histerical) manuscript regaling the 1950-1970 basketball seasons. I am contributing a letter to my old coach who requested a response and, of course, you are mentioned along with 10 others. I am copying all who are named. The only address I have for you is Random House in NY. Should I send there or will you receive if sent to Pat Conroy, Fripp Island, S.C.? I have to mail 4-25-11 so if I do not hear, I will send % Random House. Thanks. smoody@moodyjones.com

Just finished South of Broad. One of the best books I have read in quite sometime. I would say I would wish they would make a movie out of it but movies never do justice to a well written book. Thanks so much for a great novel. I must read some of your other works now.

While reading My Losing Season I found we have much in common.
Dad was marine, b-ball player, & we moved 16 times. Played b-ball at Florida Southern, 68 , and we had many common opponents. Worked Claire Bee’s Camp All-America, lived in Corbin, Kentucky home of Frank Selvy, & mother was a reader.
Have memories of Panneton & Pomeroy at William & Mary, Keuer & Pruit at J-ville, and Hogan at FSU. Also played at New Orleans, & Stetson.
We played South Carolina & I recall Harlicka, Gregor, & Fox. Remember blocking Gregor out one game, getting forearmed, flying into the stands thinking I was paralyzed, & hearing fans scream “kill him Gary, kill him.” At that moment my goal went from winning to getting out of Columbia alive.

While reading My Losing Season I found we have much in common… Like you, I only had a few exceptional games. I remember having 20 against South Carolina and 19 against Florida State, but there were far more games with 10 or 12, and several with 5 or 6.
By the way, I actually saw your game against Florida State at Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa. I had worked with Bill Bunting at Camp All-American the summer of 1966 and went to the game to see Bill and watch Florida State since we were playing them later in the year. I don’t remember much about your game, but I do remember Lewis and Miller being a class above us regular guys.
Finally, I was captain and my number was also 22… thanks for a great book.

OOPS, sorry! After typing, retyping, and editing your form, for my previous post, several times, to remove "offending characters," I clicked enter without realizing there was a typo at the end. Thank YOU for your consideration!

Will you be anywhere near Peachtree City, GA, 4-18-11? My Reading Life is the Sisterchicks Book Club selection. We meet at Starbucks, Hwy 54, Publix Shopping Ctr. 7:30 pm. I would love for you to come, call in, or Skype! If you will come, we can change locations, and either keep it small, or open up to more people, your preference. Your wife is welcome! I am finding myself wishing Gene Norris were still alive, and I knew him, so I could enlist his help to persuade you! I also do an online book club on my blog at www.dancingonthejourney.blogspot.com. The link for My Reading Life is in the February archive on the left. This form did not like the symbols in your link! I am hoping to hear from you. Thank yo for your consideration!

I just discovered you! I decided to reread War and Peace after my first time around 1950. Your introduction (pocket book) so pleased me that I asked Google who you were !!! Now you are the next writer after Tolstoy. At 83 I keep going back to the "great" novels. I so like your warm and enthusiastic personality. Thanks !!
