Pat, I am a huge fan of your writing. I have read all of your books and always wait anxiously for your next creation. Your prose makes me want to weep, it is so beautiful. Your phraseology and command of the English language is extraordinary. You are, without a doubt, my favorite author. I have read and listened to all of your books. I especially enjoy listening to them. The reader always has that beautiful slight southern accent that allows the listener to imagine themselves in Charleston or from whence the characters originate . My favorite books of yours are Beach Music and The Water is Wide. Are there plans to make anymore of your books into movies? Conrack was a disappointment. You have a God given talent for story telling. Please continue to write. Your fans are waiting.

What a pleasure it was to meet you last night at the book signing in Augusta. Thank you for being such a gracious visiting author! You are a true southerner. I love reading your books. You paint pictures with words. When I read your books I am always hungry for more. Thank you for sharing your talent and I look forward to reading your next book. I hope you enjoy writing your books as much as I do reading them.

Mr. Conroy, you are the finest novelist this country has ever produced, period. I have read every book you've published, most of them several times, and I treasure each and every word. I had to "ration" my reading of South of Broad, because I knew if I didn't I would read it all in one day - and I wanted the experience to last! Please keep writing as long as you want to - you bring much joy to so many people with your work. Cheers ....

It was such a pleasure to meet you last night at the book signing in Augusta. Thank you for taking the time to speak to shake hands with us. I have shared this with my students and hope to inspire them to become avid lovers of the written word.

Mr. Conroy, I bought "South of Broad" today. My brother lives on Lady's Island, in Beaufort, SC, so I've experienced some of the Low Country tastes, smells and sights that you so eloquently describe. A creative writing teacher once advised me to "ask every sentence if it has a right to be there". Not only does every one of your sentences have that right, but it feels as though I'm committing the worst kind of sin of omission if I don't savour every single word. I found it hard to move past the Prologue! The language was so beautiful that I wanted to stay immersed in each phrase. It was that "pleasure deferred" thing, the same mechanism that makes you hesitate to take the first taste of a perfect creme brulée because once you do, you know that it will soon be finished.

Pat, Years ago my mother had encouraged me to read your books. This year I read WIW and I am almost finished with Prince of Tides. Your writing is everything my mother loved and now as I have grown and developed a deep understanding from where I came, I too, so appreciate your writing talent. I see my mom in Lila, find the study of families fascinating, and thank you P.C. for your wonderful works. I look forward to reading all your masterpieces.

Pat,
Your book, The Great Santini, and your chapter in Unrooted Childhoods helped me to understand myself. I am the grand daughter, daughter, wife and mother of military men. It is all I know. Your writings and also Mary Edwards Wertch's book opened my eyes. As I read, I kept saying "Oh yes. Oh yes. Now I understand myself." Thank you so much.

I value your sense of place and just how important geography is in the formation of character. I would love to hear your views at this time in the history of country. Speak up about the complexity, richness and beauty of the South. All lot is being said about the South's shortcomings. These are significant. However, devastating attitudes such as racism do not only exist in the South. Southerners need a spokesperson to assist this country in facing the ugly truth that racism is rampant all over this fair country. Perhaps then we can all heal and grow up.

Astounding body of work. Thank you. Page 322 of South of Broad, Niles runs out the clock on an extra point. Nope, the clock doesn't advance during the extra point attempt. Summerville had 5 secs to score. But, heck, you're a basketball man anyway.

My husband, daughter and I met you at Barbara Jean's Feb. 2008 and you were so gracious to talk with us and congratulate Sarah on her engagement. We waited at Border's, but pooped out. SOB is wonderful. The characters came to life. We go to Harbor Island often and would love to have the opportunity to cook for you (and get our books signed). I must say you have to be a Southerner to truly appreciate and understand your words weaving the magic. We have enjoyed your books for many years. Please do not wait 90 yrs for the next one. Many best wishes, Jean and John Barney
