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

I have just finished The Prince of Tides. Oh My God !! It is so...so...so...cannot even find the words. I have never read such a beautiful story. Thank you so much.

I simply wish you did you kill Luke Wingo.

I devour every book you write! I feel as though I personally know the characters. Dearly loved "Beach Music". Just started " South of Broad". I'm on page 128 & have come to love Leo. More people need to have the gall & gumption he has!! Love his & Ike's bantering!

Have loved every one of your books! "Beach Music" is my all-time favorite - They all grab me and won't let me go, even for weeks after I read them. I feel like I know these people in your books and they are part of my life. Love it! Love it! Every character is a combination of so many people in one's life; I think that is why we can all relate. Keep it up; I'm ready for a new novel from you, my favorite author!

I recently read The Lords of Discipline and was incredibly moved. Getting past the vulgarity, sadism and torture was challenging. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Even though, at one point when cadet Pierce was suffering the torture from the "10" I had to stop the audiobook. I could not take it! I found myself screaming with pride at the last sentence of the book.
Pat Conroy, there's only one.

We are a third generation Pat Conroy family. My late mother was a librarian for 30 years and introduced me to your work. The last book she read before she lost her battle with cancer was South of Broad. She passed it on to my son and then to me. We have connected with these great stories by vacationing in the low country. First at Fripp (Shrimp Shack) then the Charleston area, (Sullivan's Island/Isle of Palms) and love it. Thanks for feeding my reading appetite with great stories and please keep on writing!

Dear Pat,

Last weekend my husband and I have cooked one of the recipes on your cookbook: the best white chocolate & pistacchio cookies we have ever tasted.

So I have read all your books, I have translated one of them (The Lords of Discipline because it is not translated into Spanish and I wanted my family to read it) and now I can say I have cooked from your them! And I will definitely do it again.

Thanks for so much joy!

María
