thank you for all your stories.
my sister and i will be leading a book club discussion of THE GREAT SANTINI. i hope we can do it justice.
as former chicagoans who have come to love the south we thoroughly enjoy your insights into the southern mindset.
since beginning to study your literary works i have become interested in your chicago- family background. you never give your father's family background. certainly there was something that caused his totally insensitive behavior. i was happy to read that he finally did come to realize the trauma he caused, especially psychologically.
i look forward to your next works.
i wish i could say my thoughts and prayers go with you, but all i can send are good thoughts.
best wishes and a speedy recovery.

My mother was a great lover of your way with words. She introduced me to you, and I have been in love with your words for many years now. Mama left us peacefully on 8/9/10. She touched many people in her career as an educator and as the wife of a high school football coach. She was an absolute lioness when it can to loving and protecting us. We used a quote from My Losing Season in her service, and I could feel her smiling when her favorite minister read it: "Why do they not teach you that time is a finger snap and an eye blink, and that you should not allow a moment to pass you by without taking joyous. ecstatic note of it, not wasting a single moment of its swift, breakneck circuit?" My mom was one of the great ones. Your books were important to her and are a comfort to me.

Mr. Conroy,

I just want you to know that you're my favorite author of all time! :) I first read 'The Prince of Tides' and it was one of the most beautiful, poignant, inspiring books I have ever read! I bought all your books that I could find after that :) Sir, I wish you success in all your endeavors! I pray for continuous outpour of love and prayers and happiness and peace in your life!

May God bless you and your family always and keep you in perfect health! :)

Pat,

I have read all your books, time and time again. Each reading brings out new emotions and past experiences of my own. Your books have directed me towards reading books other great southern authors; Thomas Wolfe and William Faulkner. I looked forward to your next bestseller.

Best Regards - Jim

Hi Pat,

When signing up here I was asked to quote the City and State I live in. I have quoted the Country instead of the State because I am writing from Madrid, Spain!

Since The Prince of Tides movie I have read all your books, most of them in English as they are not available in Spanish and I simply can not afford missing just one of them!

You are my favourite writer by far. When I read The Lords of DIscipline in 2001 I ended up crying and then I decided to translate it into Spanish myself (which I did) so that my family could also enjoy the poetry of your writing and your mastering in describing the human soul. Life seen through your novels' eyes becomes worh living.

I am in the middle of South of Broad now and I have My losing season in reserve.

Huge THANKS.

María

Thanks Pat for all of your wonderful books. I hope that you will appear again on the Paul Finebaum show. I enjoyed that interview so much. It was so damn funny!! I am also very pleased to know that you have some ties to Alabama, being from LA myself. Thanks again for your great work.

A day without a Pat Conroy novel is like a day without sun shine.

Finished SOUTH OF BROAD this evening with every emotion stretched, teased, bruised, and pampered. How do you do such extortionistic things with words? (rhetorical) Thank you for picking up a pen to write or learning to type/keyboard. Tomorrow I begin building my Pat Conroy library (one book is not enough). I feel as if this northern woman invaded the South and finally understands a bit more of it: This summer THE HELP and SOUTH OF BROAD - eyes are opened. Until these it was the remarkable TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. My gratitude extends to whoever talk me to love books for it leads me to marvelous places and people.

Hi, I wish I could tell you how deeply I am moved by your books. I just finished (again) "Beach Music" and prior to that a 3rd reading of "Prince of Tides". I get so sad when I complete one of your stories. I think it's the characters that I miss. I close they book and they're gone.
It was all right when I went from "Prince" to "Beach" but now I am out of your books, I 've read everything.
I'm a writer. One of the things that stops me is that I want to write like you, and of course I can't.
Your stories are amazing. I'm sorry you've gone through such hard times for writing them.
I hope you don't stop. But selfishly that's for my benefit, not yours.
thank you so much, and happy impending 65th.
Carol

Dear Mr. Conroy,
Over the past year I have had to do alot of soul searching and facing up to life since my Dad was diagnosed with dementia. I have found it difficult to concentrate and let myself escape into the world of books that I so love. This week on vacation, I finally was able to open up South of Broad and finish it in under a week. As always... EXCELLENT! I think it is my favorite of all of your books.
I lived in Savannah for 18 years and miss it terribly somedays. Charlestonians as well as Savannanians are a class of Americans all to themselves and I miss them.
Thank you for letting the world know about them and the most beautiful part of the Southern USA.
Sincerely,
Lynn
