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

Did Ya'll see the review in the Charleston Mercury by Seabrook Wilkinson? (10/22/09). My first thought was of Carly Simon's song about Mick Jagger; "Your so Vain" (I bet you think this song is about you). Ms. "W" Seems to think "SOB" is all about smearing Charleston's aristocracy. Sorry girl, it seems to me that as I read this very well written book, that Pat was indeed telling a story about his love for Charleston and simply wove it around this tale about these well developed characters and a surprisingly good plot w/ a totally satisfying ending. I won't offend anyone's sensibilities by dropping the "F Bomb" but I sure feel like it. Ms "W" needs to take a good laxative and snuggle up w/ a tattered copy of "Atlas Shrugged".

South Of Broad was one of the best books I have ever read. The characters, the story, and Pat's prose were so wonderful!

Mr. Conroy - I have been waiting (with all the other 400+ visitors) for another chance to explore and inhabit the low country. Your prose is so lyrical, I often read it aloud to myself. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift with all of us.

Dear Mr Connroy. It is about time. I have been waiting for another one of your stories like a dying woman waiting for a heart transplant. Thank God! You're back at it. Your book the Prince of Tides changed my life, it help me to see things within my own family in the light of truth. In doing so it saved my life. I hope one day you get the opportunity to redo the movie Prince of Tide and let it be a five or six hourr movie, hell let it be a minnie series for TV. Just don't let them change the words or rearange what you have created.

P.S. There are very few authors that have the talent you have with words they are almost musical to the reader. They also taste good... food for the soul. So don't keep us waiting so long. I hate to be kept waiting for a great meal.

Leo is what every man who grew up in the 1960's wanted to be. Naive, inquisitive, athletic, curious, horny, and saintly in his drive to help any and all. His appreciation of the low country, his evocative recollections of the sights and smells of Beaufort, as well as the daily movements of his life elicit a great portrait of simpler, innocent times. Draws me back to similar days of my high school years, none as romantic or exciting as South of Broad, but surely tender. Guess that makes me a wannabe Leopold King.

I have and would again, spend my rent money on one of your books. The movie prince of Tides disappointed me greatly, but didn't stop me from reading the book several times. You are a master story teller, and have entertained and consoled me for hours with your stories. Having a Conroy book in my hand gives me reason to go to bed early. Thank you so much. I have read that writing is the way you have worked out some of your childhood trauma, your words on paper spun into stories of the heart inspire me to write my own stories. Now I need the courage. I cannot wait for another of your big thick books. But until then I will read The Great Santini, and read again the others I have read and loved.
