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!

Mr.Conroy,
I just finished reading (Beach Music), I lived in Rome & South Carolina for 3 wonderful days. I now belong to the family of Lucy Mccall and love every minute of it. I'm the only reader in my circle of family & friends. It's so hard to express to any of them the excitement I feel when reading a wonderful novel like ( Beach Music ). You crack me up with some of the phrases your characters use. I laughed, I cried & I had a great time during the whole experience. What more can I say but,WOW... Keep up good work. I look forward to reading everything I can find of yours. Oh Yea... My son came over and asked me if I had been crying ( my eyes were red & I had the sniffles ), I told him " Just reading a wonderful book ". He looked at me grinning & shaking his head. I love it...

Dear Pat:
Of course, we love reading about Gene and your relationship with him over the years.
The grandkids deserve an autographed copy of this one. I can hear Gene laughing now.
Take care, Linda and David

Just found South of Broad in my Maui rental and was so struck by the author's mellifluous style and original (and often hilarious) turns of phrase that I had to find out more about him, and sure enough, there were many commonalities. I read Prince long ago, but, now a confirmed fan, will collect all his other books, maybe on my Kindle, since my shelves are overflowing.

Pat - I just finished "South of Broad". I've been reading it since July. The part about Hugo made it all worthwhile. It was very interesting to see what you chose to write about regarding a city I've lived in or near for the past 32 years. Now how am I suppoed to walk my dog down Stoll's alley without thinking about a happy face?

I was touched deeply the first time I read The Prince of Tides. Growing up with a mother similar to your characters and on the East coast with marshland and the ocean a way of life hit, your book hit me to my core. I felt you were describing my home. I have followed your career ever since. My 18 year old son is reading The Lords of Discipline. He told me last night that he wishes the book didn't have to end. I can think of no greater compliment to give you that that one. Thank you.

My wife and I have both been fans for many years. In reading, My Losing Season, a number of references spoke of people with whom I am friends.

1. Paul Ford-----Your "best friend" when you lived in Belmont,NC. Paul is a close friend of mine and he asked that I give you his best.

2. Larry Miller-----At UNC, Larry and I were friends during our undergraduate days.

3. Blessed Sacrament School----Amazingly, I was there at the same time you were---1957--59. My 7th grade teacher was Sister Bernadine----8th grade teacher, Sister Loretta Marie.
Any chance these Sisters were your instructors at Blessed Sacrament?

Thanks for your wonderful work----It is enjoyed by many.

Mr. Conroy,
Thanks for writing The Water is Wide (I remembered the title). I recently went through an experience that was similar to yours in many ways. I stood up for what I believed in, and did what I believed was best for my students each day, but at the end of the year, I was asked not to return. I learned, just as you did, that politics within the school, unfortunately, has way too much to do with which teachers are considered good teachers. I also learned that questioning the authority of my principal proved to be my fatal flaw. I loved reading your story and knowing that someone else has felt what I felt. Thank you for sharing it. I'm glad to know the anger goes away and that there is a life after teaching! Thanks so much!

I started with Prince of Tides and have not stopped. Pat brings the south home in every book he writes. Whether I be sitting on a dock, in my backyard or at my sisters home in New York. I am always reminded of the souther roots in his books. I smell the marshs, taste the salt on the wind and I am brought home again no matter where I am. He brings the southern life, to life in each and every book. I read them over and over again. Thank you for allowing me to bring a part of home with me no matter where I go.
