Dear Mr. Conroy, As a newly planted Yankee, I find your writing a joy! I work from home teaching online. Although I love the solitude (raised an only child) I sometimes get lonely. When I pick up your book (now reading the cookbook), I am filled with warm feelings for this new territory. I hope someday to meet you. I also hope you are on the mend. I am looking forward to reading your next book or anything for that matter. Your writing makes me feel alive and I visit the city often. I love to walk ; seeing a sight or street downtown through your eyes. You make the city come alive in such a personal way. Although I am new to the area and find it difficult to make friends, your writing touches a deep part of me and I am often found reading passages to my husband and daughter; they love it too

Hello Lion,
TY for your recording of the stories in "Recipies...". Carrying in my mind your voice, its rhythm and cadence, from that book brought even more to my reading of South of Broad.
I struggled with reading comp. most all my life. College and graduate school were bitches. When my wife started her special brain training clinic in 1986, we had people like me coming in droves. Luckily we discovered a way to train the brain to make Vivid, Accurate, Concise and Complete mental imagery, so the students and I could "make the movies in our heads" to make reading understandable and pleasurable.
Reading your books, with your wonderful writing style has been a great joy. I can't wait for each of those upcoming books you have in the fire.
TY
Yours truly,
Denton Kurtz

Dear Mr. Conroy,
I leave tomorrow 2/15/10 for Charleston. The 17 Queenies from our Ole Raleigh Literary Society will meet me on Tuesday at the Mills House Bar at 7:00 PM. A friend of Sheba's from your book, will be there to greet them. Come if you can. We all loved your book and will be taking the tour the next day (Wed.) at 11:00 AM from The Mills House. Leo's Father was interesting in that he was so sweet and kind. Leo's Mother did not seem real. How could you raise a family and then return to a convent? I loved reading about the mindset of the old Charlestonians and their unwritten modes of behavior. Would love to meet you. Just show up. We will treat you and your wife to dinner at SNOBS.

After reading the Prince Of Tides for her AP English Class, my daughter handed me the book and said, "Mom, this book reminded me of some of your stories." I am a child of the South, born into poverty on the sound side of the Gulf, the beach and tides, my playground. I cried and laughed while reading the Prince of Tides. Memories were awakened for me while reading this novel, some unforgettable, some that should be forgotten.

I've read all your books and your words incur the most wonderful mental images. I'm not a cook but I've reread your cookbook and have been trying the recipes. My dtr relocated to SC so her address and your writing make me feel a deep attachment to "Low Country." Waiting for your next book.

Pat,
I have been a fan for years and had read all of your books excpet "My Losing Season" until this past week. I loved it! I could relate since I too played college basketball, but had no business doing so. I was short on height and talent, so I had to make up for it in hustle. I have been to Fripp many times and hope to plan a trip there this summer to celebrate my 50th birhtday AND 7 years cancer remission! When crossing the bridge onto the island, I always think of "Prince of Tides" and say to myself....."Lowenstein, Lowenstein." Thanks for sharing your wonderful gift.

Hi Pat,
Spending my high school years in Aiken, SC and going to USC have allowed me to feel like an initimate friend of your central characters. My mother was a professor at the University of South Carolina - Aiken and had the pleasure of meeting you many years ago. I became an instant fan and have since read all of your books. Thank you so much for reminding me why I loved growing up in SC. I feel like we both lived in the same neighborhood and hope I get to see you at a book signing in the Tampa Bay area one day. I lookforward to your next work of art!!

My book group , The Ladies of Asbury Park, meets this afternoon at 4:00PM to discuss South of Broad. Thank you for filling our gloomy winter days with your carefully drawn characters and a plot which made us hate to turn that last page. I'm going to take a photo of our group and send it to your site. Thanks so,so much.

Having moved from N.C. to Colorado recently has taken me out of that southern element that I used to feel so comfortable in. The move has allowed me to observe that sticky-sweet culture from an outsiders perspective, and while I can get caught up in judgement, I can also open up a Pat Conroy book and immediatly remember what charmed me so much about that soft, temperate region. From the sight of backwater cypress trees to the taste of tomato sandwiches on white bread with mayo. It is a truly wonderful thing to fall in love your homeland all over again. Thank you Mr. Conroy for your words!

Dear Mr. Conroy,
I have been a fan of yours for many years and have read all of your books. I am an English teacher (retired but still tutoring) and am always amazed at your command of the English language. My fantasy dream has always been to work with you to write my novel, based on the facts of an unusual life that contains all the trials, secrets and challenges in life that you write about. I've met with several authors and they all encourage me, but you are my all time favorite. I wish I could share my story with you because it would make an incredible novel. Thank you for sharing your genius.
