Pat... we've traveled in the same areas... both 65yo and I live on the Outer Banks, NC. Your pic is in my East Carolina U. senior yearbook making a bb shot during the Citadel/ECU game. I've read your books except for The Boo (not in circulation)... by far my favorite author. I can smell the salt marsh and hear the ocean in your writings. Thanks for all of your literary contributions. Met you in Chapel Hill at a book signing (Beach Music). Hopefully will cross paths and can talk about your younger years in NC and in the South in general. Stay healthy and keep writing. I get your FaceBook comments as well. Thanks again.

I am currently reading "My Reading Life" and I had to force myself to put it down only to write this. THANK YOU for your great recommendations! Although, I am an elementary librarian I will share this with my students as to how reading/books can transform their lives.

PC, just finished My Losing Season and for the first time in many years reflected on" my losing season" as a member of the 80-81 Millsaps College Majors basketball squad. Your book drew me back to think about all the losing stuff I haven't thought about for all these years. Our team like yours had a big-time dysfunctional coach who lead a group of big-time want a be players to a very unmemorable season to most folks. I like you lost touch with all the guys. Think I will pull out the old annual and see if I can dig up the memories as you did. Your book touched something deep in my heart and soul. Thank you for taking the time to dig it up and share it. Bless you and yours.
PS. I couldn't dribble or play D but I could shoot! Weak, small forwars

Just finished My Reading Life. I couldn't put it down. You have convinced me to read Tolstoy and some of the other books and authors you mentioned. thank you for a book that was a pleasure to read.

In future editions of this book you should have a bibliography so one can easily make a list these treasures to find and read.

My step-grandfather's name was Frank Conroy. He married my grandmother in Chicago, Ill. I am trying to figure out how he is related to you. I believe your dad was his cousin or second cousin. I have read most of your books, and your newest book will arrive soon. I heard stories from my mother, an avid reader, that she and the family visited and had dinner with your father when he was stationed out here in California during the 40's or 50's. Each of my 4 brothers and sisters called my grandfather Papa Boo. I just think is very interesting, now remembering it. His photographs show a remarkable resemblance to you... from as early as I can remember he was white haired and had those notable cheeks. I have been a teacher for 23 years.

I tell my students that fiction has the power to reveal truths. They often want to know whether a story is "real." I believe that much carefully written fiction is "real"--a revelation of the writer's experience of the truths in the world. It is, therefore, a powerful means to communicate important ideas that cannot be quantified as though they were provable scientific theories. Your writing has given me insights and encouragement about the truths of my life, and I thank you from the bottom of my post-middle-aged heart. Better late than never...

I am finishing your newest and keep thinking that you are one of these writers you talk about. I live in walking distance of The Book Mark but I was to scared to go see you. I practiced what I might say if I should go and have you sign my book... I knew I would get tongue tied and red faced! Your books (most especially Beach Music) have meant the world to me. I have read it all the way through about 5 times but sometimes I grab my dog-eared copy and go back to my favorite parts. Feels like visiting with old friends.
Thankyou so much for your wonderful work! You are my Thomas Wolfe!
