Pat,
Your writings have always been an inspiration. I first discovered Fripp with my wife in 86. I was already a fan and when I heard you were also keen on the Island it became even more special. You are the essence of South Carolina. Your life, as you have shared, has been complicated and you have made something extraordinary from it. The news of your illness is scary so best wishes with your new regimen. We shared a bench at the Shrimp Shack one day a few years ago. I wanted to speak to you about your work but I decided not to intrude. I have mixed feelings about that decision. My diet means no more shrimp burgers so don't feel too alone. Thanks for the entertainment and everything else. Please keep writing.

Dear Mr. Conroy,
South of Broad was simply elegant. I spent the first year of my marriage in Charleston while my husband finished his Navy duty. That was 1964, a year of turmoil for Charleston. You brought back wonderful memories of a year in your beautiful city and reminders of how this Yankee was often shocked by a culture so different from my own.

I, too, am a writer. The downside to reading your wonderful work is that I look at mine with a highly critical eye. Although I've been a journalist for 30 years and have one published nonfiction book behind me, this is my first novel. I can only hope to aspire to reaching the quality of your work. I look forward to your next novel. I'm getting old - don't wait too long, please!

You've done for Charleston in words what Woody Allen has done for New York in film. I'd read your books for that alone.
Thanks, Pat

Pat,
I have read a lot of books in my lifetime, I am a graduate of UVA and W&M, and you are my number one favorite author of all time. You can put together an epic story that flows like the sweep of your hand through the air. I love the South as you do and identify with many of the relational elements in your stories. You are courageous and inspiring. I feel so moved emotionally by your writing. Thank you so much for putting it out there for all the world to enjoy. I sure wish I could meet you one day, have a genuine conversation about all the things that have made you the greatest author you are. Thanks again, thank God for you and your life.
Robin

I've been waiting a long time to read South of Broad and it didn't disappoint. Enchanting characters, great stories about some of my era's milestone events and Conroy's delicious prose filled me up completely, just as I anticipated. Thanks!

Pat, I was on the freshman basketball team when you were a sophomore at The Citadel. You helped protect me at times from some of the upper classmen in E Company who resented me playing basketball. I have enjoyed your books over the years, especially "My Losing Season" because of the memories of plying with DeBrosse, Bridges and Bornhorst.
I want to wish you continued sucess.

Le premier livre que j'ai lu de vous est le Prince des marées, puis Beach Music qui restera pour moi un de mes romans préférés. Je viens de terminer Charleston Sud, quelle tristesse la mort de Sheba, mais quel plaisir de vous lire et de s'échapper du monde réel pendant ces quelques heures de lecture. Merci pour vos livres. Luc from Belgium

I have read all of your books and am currently re-reading Beach Music and losing myself once again to Jack and Leah McCall. I am overjoyed to find that I have a new treat in store with your new book - South of Broad. Christmas has come early this year! Thank-you.
