They say that if Dublin were destroyed, it could be rebuilt using Joyce's 'Ulysses' as a guide. I feel if Charleston needs rebuilding (another Hugo), I hope the library has an undamaged copy of 'South of Broad'.
Well done again Mr. Conroy and I will be thinking of you next Bloomsday!

Mr. Conroy:
South of Broad... what an amazing story and loved the characters. It captured me from the first page. Please continue writing these great novels. Is there one planned in the future?

Have read and loved all of your books (Although the Great Santini was a tough read for me). SOB really hit home with me because I was in Charleston at AH when you were in the Citadel. And you got it just right.

Someone made off with my copy of your cookbook and I bought another copy while on HH 3 weeks ago. Dang, I knew some of your friends from a long time ago and it brought back so many memories. Now I MUST try to cook your recipes.

Hope your health is improving, and from one foodie to another, and one who loves to read great writings, keep it up. Can't wait for the next 3 books.

All the best to you and your family. Susan

Thank you, thank you for another book!
It's sheer delight just to read words so glorious that you can taste them--I can never get enough of your writing. And the people--our friends and foes---DON"T STOP!!!!!!! I ring up my friends just to quote lines from your books and appreciate the joy of the language. Makes me long to live in the south.

Many thanks!!

Pat,
I am a 1968 graduate from Beaufort High School. I was in your Pshchology and US Goverment class your 1st year of teaching and my last year of high school. I have followed your career with delight and my family and I love your "crab cake recipe"!!! I would love to get a copy of your recipe book. Just wanted to let you know my friends think I am very lucky to have had you as a teacher, I think so too! I still remember our trip to Columbia SC to the prison... to sit in "old sparky" what an impression that made!!! Thanks for the memories!! That was also the 1st year we were intergated you helped us all understand each other... thanks for that too!

One of your biggest fans!

I just finished reading South of Broad and am having a novel hangover already. Wow! Truly one of the best and remarkable books I have read for a long time. Thank you for killing off the bad evil father. Thanks for the ride.

Kathryn Lang, editor, SMU PressSouthern Methodist University Press

Would you consider writing a statement in support of the SMU Press which is in danger of being precipitously closed June 1? You wrote a wonderful blurb for Sam Michel's book, BIG DOGS AND FLYBOYS not long ago. We are receiving much support from the literary community, and we'd be grateful for yours as well. We need these statements of support ASAP; our editorial board meets with the provost on this matter on Wednesday, May 12th. Please join Ann Beattie, Richard Russo, Abraham Verghese, Ron Carlson, Thomas Lynch, Rosellen Brown, Jill McCorkle, M.S. Bell, David Slavitt, Robert Boswell, David Huddle, Lee K. Abbott, and so many others in helping to persuade our provost that we are worth keeping. We would be most grateful.
A beleagured editor at a tiny literary press,
Kathryn Lang

Dear mr. Conroy,
I was 114 th on the waiting list at our library for South Of Broad. I am reading it now. I love your work and your beautiful southern soul. Fine, oh so fine writing. Much continued success. Margie

Dear Mr. Conroy, I've read all of your books starting with the Prince of Tides, and just recently South of Broad, then Beach Music. I wish I could craft words sufficiently to state the scope and depth of how your writing impacts mind, heart and soul. I'll be reading your cookbooks soon. Hopefully, my wife - a retired home ec. teacher - will trust me in the kitchen. Thanks for being such a "doctor" of language. That's one huge step above "master"

Did you ever meet Philip Simmons? Do you have any memory or stories of him?
