Dear Mr. Conroy,
My AP english teacher assigned for us to read a book by you. I do not care for most books that I read from school but yours I loved. I read "My Losing Season" and it is my new favorite book. I cannot wait to read the rest of your books. I learned so many things from your story that affect my life. When I was reading the book I found myself cheering for games and yelling at what your Dad said to you.
I just wanted to share that with you.... not really sure why. I just want you to know how much I admire you and I hope I can find my voice just like you did.
Thank you for sharing your story.
Love, Emily

I have read all your books, and liked them all.
Cannot help noticing that your theme of "man's inhumanity to man" has gotten stronger with each book, and finally in South of Broad, it surrounds nearly the entire book. A little too much for my tastes. Grim, very grim.

Thank You Pat,
I have just read SOB and once again believe that you are my favorite writer. Your words capture what many of us see and feel but can't find the words or the courage to put them in print.The words are so rich and perfect and each sentence is a like a great work of art. Even though many of your stories take place in the low country they could occur anywhere. As I get older I know that life does not always turn as we have planned and we spend so much effort trying to make peace with that great canyon. My prayer for you Pat Conroy is that you will find peace and hope that SOB is the beginning of that journey. May God bless you and all your relationships.

David

Hello Pat,
Thanks for all the literary talent with which God has graced you. I've enjoyed all of your books, but first and foremost was "The Boo". Reading that book as a knob gave me the frame of mind I needed to survive that first year. Now, thirty years later, I have settled and raised four children right here in your own home town. Thanks for sharing the flavor of the Lowcountry with millions of people. El Cid '80 (Senior Private)

I just want to say that after I read each of your books the first time, I say "this is the best." But, I am rereading for the second time South of Broad and it IS the best - outshines, in my opinion your others. Leo King is my hero. Since I have never had a TV nor want one, books are my entertainment and your characters, places are easily put into my "brain" screen. Thank you so much.

Peace & Love to you and yours,

South of Broad was outstanding. I hope that there will be another book in the near future.

I have just finished reading South of Broad.
I can't believe it exceeded my expectations. I thought Beach Music was quite possibly your best book ever. However, I was sooo wrong. I just love reading your books, I walk with you and can see every detail of the sights you see and literally smell every thing you smell. Thank you for being my favorite southern writer!!

Dear Mr. Conroy, Since you're a fan of "A Christmas Carol,"you may enjoy "The Prompt Copy of a Christmas Carol" that Levenger Press published this December. It's (a facsimile of) the copy Dickens himself used--and marked up, scratched out and glued together--when he performed the book, which he did often. And to paraphrase Tiny Tim, God bless your books, every one, as they are all so marvelous. Best regards from a longtime fan.
