Mr. Conroy,
I have read all your books and own all of them also. A couple of them are signed even. The Prince of Tides is my all time favorite of all books I have read. I even read it twice! South of Broad is a very close second. I will probably read it again one day. Please keep writing. I really look forward to your next book!!

I just finished reading South of Broad. I loved it! I did not want Toad to stop talking. I could listen to him forever. He is so wise as are all his friends. They are my friends now too.

I have nearly finished reading 'My Losing Season.' I admit, I dislike sports, but reading this made me into a big-time fan of both Pat Conroy's prose and basketball. Thank you Pat, for being so brave in writing about your childhood and your father and for showing us how brave you were and still are. An outstanding memoir that left me breathless and crying my heart out at what you endured and the triumphs along the way. Your book, books like these, make life worth living, and your words, that writing is, "...the form that praying takes in me," is now on my fridge. Unspeakably beautiful words from a beautiful man. I will now go read your other works. I can't thank you enough for what you have written and how you have written. I hope writing this book has given you some peace.

I am reading South of Broad now. I guess the reason for that is I was stationed at the Charleston Air Force Base in the 70s. I enjoyed the surrounding area and have vacationed back there numerous times. Reading your book just brings back memories of being in Charleston. I am enjoying it tremendously and my wife wants to read it next. I think this would be a great movie. Thanks for the memories.

Many thanks for your books. I read The Prince of Tides in the early 90s - it was my discovery that family secrets are kept by other families too - one of those turning points in a person's life. I have read all your other works, and reread The Prince of Tides this past month just to see its effect on me, now almost 20 years later. While the secrets still resonate - the powerful prose overwhelmed me and wrapped in the rapture that reading should be - once again thanks. Love, love, love the cookbook - I can see the pounds coming on as I choose which recipe to try next. You are a treasure that readers are lucky to know.

Pat Conroy, I'd like you to know that you inspired a recent trip to Charleston where my friend and I significantly contributed to the area's economy. I embarked on a reading adventure of low country authors before the trip and am continuing it even as we speak. I'd love your suggestions about who to read! Though few will compare with your own substantial gifts. Thanks for great reading - and a great reason to visit your part of the world!

Mr. Conroy,

I am sorry to hear of your recent health scare, I wish you well. I understand that your travels will be effected, therefore, I do feel so fortunate to have been able to hear you speak and meet you aftewards for a book signing several years ago in Huntsville, Alabama. I will treasure that memory and the words of all of your books, some of which I have read several times. You have quite the gift, and I do feel as if I have known you for many years. Bless you!

Pat,
I feel compelled to write after visiting Charleston and coming home and re-reading South of Broad.

You are a gift to those of us who love to read; you are a comsumate storyteller and your life, your pain and your hapiness are tangible. When I first read The Prince of Tides, I knew you - I knew this was no ordinary story. As one of those children who have lived a similar childhood, I recognized you as a kindred spirit. You have such an incredible gift; please, please -take care of yourself - be happy and enjoy all the good in your life. I read you are very happy with your wife - a special gift, to be sure.
Thank you for your words, your stories and sharing yourself.
Take care & God bless.

So looking forward to your book about teaching high school. I have been a high school English teacher for 40 years. I was inspired early in my career by The Water is Wide. I have read all of your books, and recommend them to my students because of your stunning command of the language. My students are always telling me that I need to write a book of my 'helicopter' stories--stories that light and take off from anywhere. Perhaps when I retire, 10 years from now, I will, at age 70, embark on that journey. Please don't buy the farm yet, and please continue to write. Your words and stories are spellbinding, awesome, magnificent. I do not have enough vocabulary to express my admiration for them or for you. I hope your health is improving. Thanks for the wonderful reads. Blessings! DA
