PS to foregoing message: And I, too, had a violent father (bipolar) whom I loved deeply when he was "normal" and hated when he was in the grip of abusive mania (he eventually killed my mother at age 52). I well know that "scene" and its lifelong effects. I'm so glad you have the gift of words to balance the other stuff.

(PC, please see message I just wrote elsewhere on this site.) Your dedication to your "lost daughter" Susannah touches me deeply, as I, too, have a long-lost daughter (Betsy) under similar circumstances, and I ache for you, me, and them. I've read all your books since The Water is Wide (favorite), love the sea islands, lived in Charleston as a child. Hope to shake your hand some day. And may our adult children come home to our sheltering arms, with mercy in their hearts...

Pat's writing is a special gift to all of us "displaced" southerners subject to the culture of the midwest where grits are served with milk. God bless Pat Conroy!!!

I have loved reading since I was a child, and my father gave me Beach Music about 4 years ago. I have read it many times since and it impacted my life in a way I cannot even express. Thank you.

I have read all of your books and wait patiently for more. We have led very similar lives as children. I hope you find the PEACE you require to be happy and take comfort that you have eased others sadness by speaking for us who didn't have perfect childhoods. Thank You! Mary

I was not aware that you had published another book until I found "My Reading Life" at Full Circle Bookstore in OKC. I read it straight through and loved it, as I always love your books. Wish you could have been here this weekend for the nation's biggest used booksale by OKC Friends of the Library. I will never catch up with you but I bought several classics you recommended in your book. Congrats on another page-turner--hope you come to OKC soon!

I know people who are accomplished and have acheived fame, always feel like people still want something from them. I don't. I just want to say Thank You for giving me a great diversion from my life into another world, whether it be great humour, great drama, or great insanity. I need to get a break and you gave me one. Thank You, and tomorrow I start on my second book, a good idea? Take Care Mr. Patroy.

Just finished reading your letter to us dated 2009 and have to say - don't worry about anyone being funnier than you. You delight me every time. Hope you're well.

I love your writing and I'm especially in love with MY READING LIFE. I've been a bookseller and worked in corporate publishing. I have promoted your works since I first read PRINCE OF TIDES. I re-read your fiction for the beauty you gently tender to your readers. I find it hard to discover any writers except for Anne Rivers Siddons who I can say I love and whose works I can happily inhabit. Thank you, Pat Conroy for all your books including the wonderful cookbook. I gave my son your Losing Season when he began college and was in ROTC. Having just read your chapter on military brats, I wonder what I would be called as the worrying mom of a soldier of these current wars. I take some comfort and some courage in what you wrote in that chapter.

Pat, I have always been inspired by your books. Prince of Tides and Beach Music are particular favorites ( I even named my daughter, Shyla) because they bring back memories of my childhood. I grew up on the beaches of the Carolinas and your writing is a quick escape back to those salty shores. Thank you for sharing your stories.
