Worked on Daufuskie Island in mid 1970s after reading the Water is Wide...I am a much better person for both of those experiences..

Just finished "South of Broad" and I cried. #1. Because it was soooooooo good! #2. Because it was over. Thank you for giving us the gift of your writing. I have devoured everything you have written and look forward to more.
Thank you sir.

You are definitely in my top 3 list of authors. Each one of your books is nothing short of illuminating. Ironically, I have begun reaching back to my high school classmates, many of whom I had little to do with back then. I have thought that doing so was just another sign/symptom of middle age. I am nearly done with South Of Broad and have found it to not only be the usual phenomenal Pat Conroy book, but have enjoyed the taste of unintended irony that I should be reading it at this time of my ambivalent aforementioned outreach to the denizens of my past years. Thank you for the hours of reading - I pray that your newly-improved health continues for a long time so that we may be blessed with (at least) the three books that you are planning/writing. Live well, sir!

I posted the following on your FB page:
There are a perhaps a handful of life-altering reads.... To Kill a Mockingbird in my youth, P of Tides as an adult and each book you have written thereafter. This VMI '68 wife/ good friend of Steve Powers later got to hear other great stories regarding Mr. Conroy, the greatest of the modern-day writers.
Thank you for sharing all you do through your prose.

Your opening paragraph in S of B describing Charleston is, I think, the best I have ever read. In describing and recommending your work to others, I have said that you write as a master paints -- you touch our senses as we can see what you see, taste what you are eating and smell & visualize the scenery about what you are writing.

Thank you for the honesty in your writing. I have been moved to tears and laughter by the stories you tell. That is how I determine for myself the greatness of a piece of art. Again, thank you.

I love your books Pat Conroy. I read "The Prince of Tides" last year and was overwhelmed with its beauty and the poetry of your prose. I have read "Beach Music" also with as much adoration. I loved seeing your wife in a magazine talking about how she met you and you cooked a crab cake (or something?) and she fell in love with you right there on the spot. So romantic! My love to you both.

My family lives in PA, but we have owned a home on Fripp for 15 years. During each visit we always spend an entire day in my favorite city, Charleston. I truly enjoyed "South of Broad"! Your words had me walking right alongside the characters in the book throughout the streets of Charleston.
Very Best Regards & Be Well,
Frank

If only I could put into words how much joy your books have brought into my life. My 24 year old son just recently decided to enrich his life through fiction and the author he chose to read was you (through me). Then one day he told me he had an epiphany about wanting to be a writer. I've always thought he should be a writer but, of course, kids don't listen to their parents when they're young. He wants to write about a dear friend of his who died quite tragically and very young. He says he wants to write like Pat Conroy, tragedy and adveristy, and of course beauty. You have a gift. You can string the most beautiful words together. I find myself reading and re-reading sentence after sentence...

I met you at Litchfield Books. James Dickey was my parents neighbor and I told you how much Maxine Dickey loved you and your writing. I loved South of Broad . I used to live in Charleston and lived through Hugo. I moved to the mountains of NC after we rebuilt the house. South of Broad made me realize how much I still love Charleston.

I was born and raised in New England and many years ago spent a year in Charleston. I was homesick for the cool crisp North. Found The Great Santini at the library and that began my ever lasting love and joy for your writing and opened my eyes to the beauty of the South.
Thank you for your gift.
