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

My husband just gave me the most wonderful surprise, a signed copy of South of Broad. He had his sister get it for me at your recent book signing in Myrtle Beach. Living in Hawaii for the past 19 years, your books always bring me back to the place I call home, the lowcountry of South Carolina. The passion and beauty of your story will be greatly enhanced knowing you have graced it with your touch. Thank you for bringing me back "home". Aloha and Mahalo.

Mr. Conroy: Thanks so much for another wonderful book - I await your future publications with enthusiasm, this Quebecer and her husband will soon be visiting S. Carolina (esp. Charleston) due to your wonderful writing.
I can't wait to get home to re-read "South of Broad" tonight - it just makes my day to read your work. Thanks again for ALL your great writing, which I re-read often, and read aloud to those who will listen, for the sheer joy of your poetic prose.
Thanks again.

Mr. Conroy, I just finished reading South of Broad and loved it, but am loving your cook as much. It appears we have some mutual friends in common. My son, Hugh-Lloyd Kimbel and Carter Warley were RM at VA Tech. Carter is the person that asked Hugh-Lloyd got his strang name. My son's response was, "my momma is from the south; it's kinda like Billy-Bob with class". Also, my ex-husband and Greg and Mary Smith were great friends when they were in Sertoma together. Anyway, love your books, but have always wondered by no movie came out for Beach Music, my personal favorite. Have a great day.

Mr. Conroy,

It is with the deepest respect that I am writing to you. To say the least, your novel made me laugh, cry, ponder, get the dictionary out, get the map out, and moved me deeply. My sister and I used to walk to our local library to escape into the wonderland of books. I am now 62 and my love of literature has continued to increase. I have come to the conclusion: you can sling a sentence together better than Hemingway and Steinbeck (in my humble opinion). I anticipate you next three books. Also, I pray for you continued health.

South of Broad has stirred in me many memories of Charleston and The Citadel. My husband and oldest son were graduates of The Cid. I found it extremely difficult to put the book down; I was riveted to every page! Your writing captures all the senses. It was a great read!

When Leo see his mother dressed as a nun in a photo on the bedroom dresser, also in the photo is Leo's father and grandparents. When could this photo have been taken? I cannot find a scene in which Leo's father ever saw his future wife in her habit. Especially and also not together with his dead parents. Can anyone explain this? I've re-read the book to try and find an answer with no luck.

I have been a fan of yours for years, have read all of your books... I think your writing is so well contrived, and flows so well, like poetry. Can't believe I am writing this, I admire you so much, but "South of Broad" in my opinion was not your best, like "Beach Music"... loved all the others. What I didn't like is all the angst.. the racial situations, the miscegenation, it was difficult to tell who was black and white, and didn't fit in at all with my impressions of Charleston... I did like the descriptions of the houses on the battery.. but I thought there was a much higher class person in Charleston than you wrote about.. maybe South of Broad meant the "wrong side" of town. Aids, vomit, feces.. we don't need !
