When I read Beach Music I knew I had found the author who could write my soul, and the things I had experinced in my own life. I then found, and read every word Mr. Conroy has ever written, that I could find. Have you ever read his speach to the Citadel ("I wear the ring") ? Google it, its quite moving. I have now read Beach Music at least 8 times, and read it once a year. I was almost afraid to read South of Broad when it came out as I just wasn't sure anything could come close to Beach Music. I was excited, but afraid... I my fear soon disappeared as I went to the Charleston in this book, and met Toad, Trevor, Niles, Molly and the gang. Quite simply, another masterpiece. I believe with all my heart that when I am long gone, Conroy will be taught in the lit. classes across the U.S.

Mr. Conroy; one of your classmates at the "C" turned me on to your writings. As a former army bratt; wow; Santini did live in my home. My faith in God has gotten me through the hellish pass and somehow now I can live without regrets. Pray, get well; do not relinquish the gift you have been given to grace us with some form of sanity.

It is so cool to share a birthday with one of my favorite authors. Just (reluctantly) finished South of Broad. Setting, plot and characters all work so well together. But it is your use of language that makes reading each book such a pleasue, and finishing one so bittersweet. Happy birthday to us!

Maybe it's that I'm a transplanted southerner, or that I spent summers in coastal Carolina, or that I went to VA Tech with The Corps, or that I was once taught poor black children, or that my high school boyfriend's father was a carbon copy of The Great Santini, or that my father played basketball for Maryland, or I have dealt with mental illness in my family, or that I shed my worries when I cross over to the shoreline, or that I know I have found another soul mate when someone says "Pat Conroy is my favorite author too!". Whatever it is that makes me reread your books when I can't even finish my own WINO (Women In Need Of a NIght Out) book group selections must be something close to addiction - and I am so thankful that your writing feeds it.

Dear Mr. Conroy,
We have always admired your writing and enjoyed all your novels, however I was disturbed about your reference to albinos on page 48 of South of Broad. We have a grandson with albinism. He is a remarkable young man and has done very well, but has had to deal with many insensitive comments and behaviors of others.
Sincerely
Jim and Sandy Wheat
