I took Pat's advice and bought "Red Hook Road" and I am lost in reading this wonderful book.
Thanks for the book suggestion Pat!

Just finished South Of Broad and want to say Thank You to Mr. Conroy for such a great South Carolina story. It included many events I experienced growing up in SC, as I am about the age of Toad. Looking forward to a follow up story on the characters and the tails of continuing lives.

Beach Music and Prince of Tides are my favorites although I have read all your books. Was down visiting my aunt on Pawleys Island last year and went surfing with my cousin only to drop by Litchfield Books at the end of the day to find out you had a book signing there. Seriously bummed me out, best wishes for the future.

Absolutely thrilled to be reading South of Broad... was wondering when you were going to appear again... don't take too long next time.... All of your novels have given me a yearning to visit Charlestone, Georgia and Savannah and I will one day.. Its really beautiful - south of broad... My son is a fan since he was twenty and has read them all... the great santini being his favourite... don't ask but I think it help?

I read about Conrack years ago and loved it. I've gotten around to most of the rest over the years. I put off "My Losing Season" as I'm not much of a sports fan, but just finished it and it turned out to be a favorite. It was so touching and it was the real you, not the fictional you.
Laughed so much listening to the cookbook! It was good to hear it in your own voice. I remember meeting Frank Stitt once in "Joe" Bar in Birmingham years ago and he said " I'm going to open a really good restaurant" (We really desperately needed one too)
You were so funny on The Windancer Benefit too.
Well, only have "Lords of Discipline" & "The Boo" left.
Hope you have something else in the pipeline.

Dear Pat,
May I echo all the eloquent praise rendered here? As I grow older, I find a need to say "thank you" to those who have made a difference in my life. Times of pure bliss, moments of complete happiness, have been rare. I've experienced that bliss each time I've been caught up in one of your incomparable stories, and like all of your readers, I never want them to end. In South of Broad, you exhibited such a deep understanding of the human condition so many times...much less expensive and painful than therapy:) Is there anything that feels better than being understood - than knowing that someone "gets it". You have magically charmed all of us since the beginning, and let us know that we are not alone. You have my deep gratitude and prayers for improving health and long life!

There is no one else on Earth who has such a command and mastery of the English language as Pat Conroy. He could make watching grass grow or watching paint dry an emotional experience! Just the greatest author ever, and I've read almost as much as he has! Love you, Mr. Conroy!

I have been journaling since the age of eleven. I grew up on Galveston Island with my last years there spent in a Victorian one bedroom home that housed our family of eight.
My mother and stepfather, had a turbulent marriage that included infidelity, abuse, child abuse and molestation.
My only consolation was writing . . . recording my sadness and inablitity to change the life we lived.
Your words that I have read inspire me in such a way that I cannot describe . . . from The Prince of Tides I found the words, "In families there are no crimes beyond forgiveness", and have held on to them in search of an attempt at understanding.
I have been to Beaufort and felt to be drawn to your wonder . . . your way with words. At the Firehouse bookstore I hoped to meet you: perhaps one day.

I prayed South of Broad would never end. I was swept away by the characters and wanted to know them even better. Where were they on Bloomsday, 2010??? Thank you, Mr. Conroy. Now on to your other works....
