After finishing my second reading of South of Broad, I went back and reread Beach Music for the umpteenth time, and it made me cry again, also for the umpteenth time. I have loved all Mr. Conroy's books, especially Prince of Tides and The Great Santini, but in my opinion Beach Music will live on long after any of us as a shining example of the Great American Novel.

Pat, thanks for your writing and amazing descriptions in your books. I read the Lords of Discipline in 2000 and have read it at least once a year since. After my wedding, my wife asked me where I would like to take our first vacation. I chose Charleston because I wanted to see and experience the city that I had read about over and over. It was everything I hoped for and we loved every minute of it. We hope to go back again and see the city we fell in love with. Finally, earlier today I finished reading South of Broad and, once again, found myself caught up in your novel. It brought up so many memories I had of my high school experience and the friends I made there. You are what makes being a reader so special!

What a love letter to the South! Now living in Chicago after growing up in Atlanta, your words were like home to me! This is by far one of the best books I have ever read. As a teacher, it is my hope that high school students will one day be reading this in an English Class. Thank you,

Pat, keep proving great storytelling and beautiful prose can carry on a beautiful love affair. That critic who chided your "purpled prose" simply wishes he could write as you do! Bravo to you. Conroy fans, check out this blog. Would love your thoughts: she-rain.blogspot.com

I lived in the old village of Mount Pleasant in a historical house; almost rented a house on Tradd Street; was a Charleston Lawyer on Church Street, near St. Philips. Weathered Hugo, and moved back to Florida in 1991. I left my heart in Charleson. I just finished SOB, and I've read all your books. Don't ever quit writing. Leave lots of posthumous manuscripts. Your characters will live on forever. I almost worked for a law firm started by Augustine Symthe. When he came to Charleston they said, "If you ordered a trainload of sons of bitches and, when the train go to the station, only Augustine Smythe got off, you would have got your money's worth." If you were the only Southern writer, we would still be proud of the South's literary legacy. THANKS!

Mac

Pat, what a treasure you are, I just finished South of Broad and absolutely loved it. Your writing is superb! Just everything about your use of words is such a pleasure to read. My thanks to you for giving all of us such joy in reading. Bravo!

Thank you for the list on pp 246-247. Is it OK if I print it and hand it out to uppity Long Islanders and people like that? God, did you scratch where I have itched since I departed Griffin GA for the wider world. Was in the audience at a special screening of The Great Santini when your Dad walked out. You just kept on writing. Wish my Dad were still alive to tell me a little more about his days at the Citadel...

An outstanding read and a walk down memory lane for me. I pictured all the places you describe so well, and remember all the great times in the Holy City. Great job. Class of '72
