You're my favorite writer (Prince of Tides is my favorite book) and I've loved them all. So when I started reading "My Reading Life," I wasn't surprised to see that your brilliant command of language and literary prose held up, even in a book about reading. I'm on a one-month writing retreat at Seagrove Beach, Florida, and love what you wrote about the affect of your surroundings on your writing: "It had become a habit of mine to write books in beautiful places, in rooms with exquisite views. Landscape and architecture affect the texture and quality of my prose; at least, that is the essential nature of my one grand superstition regarding the craft." I agree! That's why I'm writing at the beach.

I am nearing the end of your wonderful book South Of Broad. I am trying to read slowly and savor every word. I will miss the Toad and company. They took me along with them as their lives unfolded. A much needed respite for which I will be forever grateful.

Norm (another guest) and I must have been in line at the same time. I waited eagerly about 4 hours on Park Rd. in Charlotte to meet with you. People were dancing to beach music. What a blast! Ever since I first met you at Bluffton High so many years ago, you have inspired me (both as a teacher and a writer). I will always treasure your gifts to the literary world. Take care, neighbor!

Listening to your explanation of the dedication of your new book brought up sharp emotion for me. I have a beloved lost daughter too, nearly the same age as yours. It's by far the toughest challenge I've had in this lifetime. I hope someday we'll be close again, but I realize I have no control over her decision. I miss her everyday. I know I was a good parent, and a good mom and life is not fair. I will leave the door open to my girl for the rest of my life. In the meantime, I try to be some good to other young people, especially young women. I hope your book dedication opens a door to your lost daughter someday.

Just heard you on NPR in Colorado and will now begin reading your books! Have heard about them of course but never read any. Would it be mistake to start with your most recent?! Remembering clearly the wonderful reading sessions with my parents, treasuring bed time and nap time reading with my children and seeing my son carry on the bedtime book with his three children maked me want to start with "My Reading Life". It was a great interview on NPR.

Pat Conroy's books are the most enjoyable reading experience. I hate to see them come to an end, if they could go on forever I would be happy to read his work forever. Magical, heartwarming, and pure genius.
Thank you to the greatest author in America, or quite possibly the world.

It is with such sadness that I say I have just finished reading South of Broad...sadness because I never wanted it to end. I have read all of your books, but must say this is my favorite. I felt as though I knew well each character. Am looking forward to the next book!

Hello from Brenda in Oxford, MS (I'm the one that has part of a beam from Mrs. Field's School). It was so good to see you again. You look great!
God Bless.

Dear Sir,
I knew the movies based on your writing long before I knew your books. My first Pat Conroy read was BEACH MUSIC, which I stood in line for four hours awaiting your autograph at the Little Professor Bookshop in Charlotte, NC. I read it four times over the years and it has never lost its appeal. Since then, I read all your books from THE BOO to SOUTH OF BROAD and look forward to your latest. Like you, I am spellbound by the writings of Thomas Wolfe. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.
