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.

I have read all of Pat Conroy's books except for "The Boo" and "Lords of Discipline." I am from Charleston, SC and used to teach there back in 1972. Pat is an inspiration to me for many reasons, and I consider him to be one of the best athors of our time. He always touches my heart with his exquisite style!

Mr. Conroy,
I recently attended the Miami International Book Fair and had the privilage of hearing you speak. I was impressed by your presence, sincerity and sense of humor. Having read all of your books, my appreciation for your work was significant. I left the book fair with a higher respect and admiration than I already had. I crave to read your words on a daily basis and I thank you for sharing your incredible talents with the world.

My sister insisted to buy a translated copy to Spanish from your book: Beach Music. It was rare to find this book in a Managua bookstore. After The Prince ot Tides, the movie, until two years ago had this book, Beach Music, that came to my life in hard times and refresh me.
I was amazed with all the book. When I was commenting my mom and sister, also readers, I may say to you, that book is a 'tribute to love' and 'offer respect to suffering and struggles in life'. I felt so identified with many parts of the book and read it for two times now. Unfortunately, here in Managua we don't find your books.
Many parts of the book are amazing: life in Rome, the cooking, etc. I was fascinated . Go on, you give readers a lot

I am reading my first Pat Conroy book (My Losing Season) and man, is it great! I can't wait to read all the rest of your books.

I'm a basketball fan and was drawn to a sports book that DIDN'T tell the story of another "magical season".

Pat, you've done an incredible job taking us into that world. I love it and hate it at the same time! It's fabulous.

Thanks for sharing your gifts with us Pat.

Monsieur Conroy, I'm a french woman who fall deeply in love with the South when I came to study at tulane in New Orleans with a scholarship 25 years ago. Ever since I've been a big fan of southerner novels. But my biggest reading emotion came from The Prince of Tides : for the very first time, I cried over a written story. That was 15 years ago and ever since I've been waiting for your novels with a lot of impatience. The Prince of tides is n°1 in my top list and I thing that so far I've given it as a present 50 times ! Merci beaucoup Monsieur Conroy et continuez à nous faire rêver ainsi.
