Mr. Conroy:

The Prince of Tides has always been my favorite movie. I watched it 18 years ago and bawled like a baby several times while I was watching it. I decided to pick the book up and read it shortly after I read The Great Santini a few months back. Now The Prince of Tides is also my favorite book of all time. It used to be To Kill a Mockingbird. I finished readint The Prince of Tides this morning, and I truly wished the book would never end. You are brilliant! I am starting a collection of all of your books. Thank you for entering my life 18 years ago and recently re-entering it in your novels.

Just finished South Broad, what a great heart rendering book. As a lover of Charleston and often visitor know the places he mentions. Listened to Beaches on a trip to Florida years ago and laughed so much Had to pull over to see to drive (the bridge scene where their brother made them unrobe). Love Pat and all his books, and love the fact that he has a person with the Charleston accent do the reading. Worked for a company from Charleston and my company President lived on Rainbow Row. There is no place like Charleston and no writer like Pat. I am waiting for Beaches to be made a movie, I had heard this was going to happen. Hopefully waiting.

Wow, what a great read!! I hated to have it come to an end. Leo was such a complex and loving character. You did shock me... but it made perfect sense and put the missing pieces together. I have visited Charleston and now I can't wait to go back and walk the streets and homes you write so beautifully about.
Thank you and please keep writing.

I really loved South of Broad. As a recovering Catholic, I could really identify with a lot of the characters. All of us have known a Sheba, a Chad, and a Leo, if we are of a certain age. Well done Pat.

Have loved everything you've written through Beach Music. The hodgepodge of caustic wit, tinged with seeming madness in South of Broad falls flat and falls short.

Hey, Pat!
Dropped you a note on this site on March 4, 2010. Didn't know if you wanted to respond or not and don't know if the email I typed in the guestbook form will show up so taking the liberty of putting it in the comments in case you read this site. Hope I am not out of line here. All the best.

Dear Mr Conroy
Thank you for the gift of your latest novel. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Leo and his collection of misfits. Whenever I read your books I am restless for a few days afterwards wishing I could hop on a plane and go walk the streets you so vividly detail. South of Broad sent me searching for recipes of Benne wafers. Long may you keep writing.
Best wishes. Sherryl

Just finished South of Broad for my book club. I take offense at your anti-Catholicism. Apparently, you are associating Catholicism with your father--abusive rather than a religion of love. You get your facts about Catholicism wrong, too. The Catholic church does not forbid divorce. Divorce is a legal matter. What the Catholic Church does not approve us is remarriage (if the first marriage was sacramental and valid). Therefore, your main character could have divorced his wife (a legality) although still be married in the eye of the Church. Also, I didn't like the gratuitous naming of the monsignor as the pedophile at the end of the book. Again, what kind of Catholic upbrining did you have? Not the one I had, obviously.

Just finished South of Broad. It was tremendous.--I thought it was even better than Prince of Tides and Beach Music. Thank You
