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.

As I read other authors today, I only appreciate you and your love/dance with the English language more!! Your God-given gift of story-telling combined with your other "loves" set you completely apart in a category all your own. While others begin to quickly/haphazardly whip out another book to meet schedules, you give us the enormous gift of South of Broad. Your love of the language is so evident throughout each of your novels; but then along comes a sentence or paragraph that is so beautiful, one stops and reads that over again, and yet again! Thank you so very much for sharing your very rare and precious gift with us - the readers.

What a great way to enjoy the day reading, My Reading Life.
Thank you Pat. It is a luminous and satisfying visit with you
on this day when we want winter to end and spring to arrive.

Hi there,
I have read and loved all of your books, although my favourite is Beach Music, I adore the dark humour and interwoven stories, as well as the fragility.

I am currently reading the Cookbook, and although halfway through, can already tell this is going to be a much loved book, as I really don't want to finish it! Your love affair with all things food, and travel, as well the stories, which tie everything together is inspiring, I may have to don the apron again.

Please continue writing, your style speaks to my heart.

Regards

Michelle

Your name came up at brunch today when me and a close friend discovered you were both our favorite contemporary author. We are very glad you are writing again. Please let us (me) know if you ever come to Prague, we do have an annual writer's festival. In deep appreciation and gratitude for your talent, skill and dedication as a writer.

Hi Pat,
I am on the thirteenth chapter in the book South of Broad and I am glad to have had a good chuckle at the way Leo talks to his mother for example. This is the first book I am reading of yours in this sudden binge of fictional reading and journal writing I have been doing for the past four years. Before that it was nil. I joined the book club, even though I rarely attend, I love to read the short stories like The Veldt in the anthologies the group reads from at times. All this is from me being an unemployed carpenter. One day I will write a good fiction book. I heard about your disability. Just kidding. After looking at the regulars type so fast at the library here, I figured that I would only use some of the typing skills I learned in high school and fudge the rest got to go.
