As a displaced Sandlapper, I revel in your words about the places of my youth. Especially Charleston and Beaufort. I am hoping to see you in Memphis and get a copy of your newest book. I got South of Broad and each time I pick it up I get nearer to the end and I am sad. It is one of the best books I have ever read. Thank you for writing such beautiful words and giving me such pleasure.

I just want to relate a funny story to you. I went to a reading by James Dickey at USC Aiken campus one time and this was in the 70s. The first thing he said was "Marriage, is never having to say you are horny." What an impression! GO COCKS!!

Have read all of your books and recommended each of them to fellow staff members and others. I saw a list of your favorite places in Charleston once but haven't able to locate it again. My youngest daughter and her husband now reside there and I'd like to give them a copy of that list so they can adequately explore that wonderfully beautiful city! HELP!!!

Pat Conroy, I have enjoyed your stories immensely... You are a truly gifted writer...Have just finished (for the second time) South of Broad. Do not think I have met a more impressive character than Leo King... Thank you for your memorable words.

Mr Conroy each time you release a new book, I am reluctant to begin reading it because I don't ever want it to end. Your books have touched me in the most profound way. I sincerely thank you for your characters, your prose and your humanity. Your books are my treasures.
Kindest regards Di Torrisi

I was introduced to Pat Conroy by a co-worker, she insisted that I read South of Broad. I did and I will forever be a fan! I fell in love with your supreme word choices and eloquent prose. My follow-up to South of Broad was The Prince of Tides. As I read the heart-wrenching tale, I experienced the full gamut of emotions. Pat Conroy is a masterul storyteller, who elicits the complete attention of readers from the first page to the very last sentence.

Happy Birthday and many, many more!! I love your work. Thank you for sharing your gift. I would like to own all your books in beautiful leather bound editions, to savor and read again and again. I devoured South of Broad and thirst for your next book. You remain a favorite.

I just finished South of Broad and I am sure it will haunt me as Prince of Tides and Beach Music did.
My eyesight is not sogreat anymore but I had to read this book. It took awhile but worth it.I go to Charleston when I can.I have two children in Columbia. I also notes your friendship with Anne Rivers Siddon who is my favorite, as well. I miss her one book a year production. Thank you again for sharing your talent.

Mr. Conroy,
The Water is Wide found me in the 1970's just before I began my teaching career. I read Lords of Discipline and The Great Santini following it. In the midst of a midlife downward spiral The Prince of Tides rescued me. I followed that with Beach Music and The Losing Season. I waited forever for South of Broad which inspired me to write a brief memoir for which I won a few writing awards. I've read them all except The Boo and want a copy of my own. I hold my breath waiting for each book you write. Your salute to English teachers in the front of my newest copy of Beach Music comforts me more than I can tell you. I am a retired High School and University English teacher. 35 years in the trenches. Thank you for your heart and soul, for what you've done for mine.

Mr Conroy,
Words are inadequate in expressing the depth of my gratitude for my mom having introduced me to "The Great Santini" over thirty years ago. We saw the film my first week after having moved to NYC and she saw you in jacksonville after you released "The Lords of Discipline" (she got me a signed copy which was since stolen). I anxiously await each new treasure you provide and savor every delicious word. Having minored in literature and written two books myself (non-fiction), I know your mastery in writing is comparable to Michaelangelo's in art. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world.
Oh, and happy birthday on Friday!
Cassie
