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 !

I am writing to tell you, Mr. Conroy, how much I enjoyed South of Broad. My wife and I have visited Charleston on a number of occasions and your novel reinforces my attraction to the city. Thank you for this wonderful contribution to American literature. Lee Bucksten

Thank you, Thank you for such a wonderful book to read. I have just finished reading "South of Broad" and feel I have made new friends with your rich and complicated characters. I had the pleasure of visiting Charleston several years ago while my daughter was going to college in the South. Your description of the city brought back great memories of the mansions and the walk along Battery. It was shortly after Hugo and I remember seeing the water scars on your precious homes and buildings. I am a huge Pat Conroy fan and each day I spend some time on my front porch rocking chair. The therapy of your "Prince of Tides" character washes over me and just makes life a little better God Bless you, Pat

Dear Mr. Conroy:
Thank you for your beautiful new novel. I appreciate how hard you must have worked to create these vivid characters; each with their own unmistakeable voice. Masterful!
Thank you.
A fan,

Dear Mr. Conroy:
I have read most of your books and they are all just wonderful.

Thank you so much for writing South of Broad. I loved every minute of it. I laughed, I cried. I did not want it to end. I smelled all the flowers, and I walked down all the streets and tasted its essence once again.

I am originaly from England and lived in Charleston from 1977 until 2006. When we moved to Georgia because of my husbands work. I know several of the people in your book. Ate lunch at the Charleston Yacht Club. My boss at MUSC for 7 years was the most senior professor there, Dr. Albert Cannon - a true SOB and a wonderful man. Reading your novel made me sooo homesick for Charleston I have to go back and visit and rediscover very soon.

Keep up the good work and God Bless

Thank you Mr. Conroy. Your gift is so perfect and the fact you can share it with millions is a blessing. Although I have seen movies based on your books, I must admit SOUTH OF BROAD is the first I actually read. I plan to rectify that ommission as I will read all of your books. I finished the book with tears cascading on the ivory pages and a blessing in my heart for finally discovering you at the age of 68. You have made my year very special with your book, your characters, your magnificent descriptive prose. I now count you as a "friend" although we will never meet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mr. Conroy,
Having just experienced the beauty and intense emotional power of South of Broad, I could not resist the desire to express to you my sincere appreciation for your art and talent. As an avid reader and English teacher, I long ago recognized that you are one of the true poets of our modern prose. I have lost count of the number of times I have read your novels; whenever I am hungry for a gripping story written in the most eloquent diction, I go to the shelf in my study that holds your collection and reach for one of your works. Although The Prince of Tides is my favorite, I love them all, and South of Broad is no exception. Thank you for all of the ways you have touched my life and my heart with your pen. May you continue to use your amazing story-telling talents to bless us.

I finished the book today, and feel like I've left my best friends behind. Amazing as always.

Thank you for the beautiful re-creation of my childhood Charleston. I grew up in the same era and felt like I was once again back at Moultrie High, circa 1969. The plot was riveting, and I read slower and slower as I neared the end - savoring it like a box of fine French chocolates! Although I love my adopted home in the red clay hills of Clemson, it can never be the Low Country.

Dear Pat,
God Bless You for real for real. For when you squeeze the honey comb, it crushes the comb, but out of it comes sweet honey. And thats what it looks like life has done to you. I have read over 3,000 books in my unusual life, and I must say, that your writing is pure prose. Even a plain simple and "boring" sentence by you sweetens, refreshes and stimulates the mind and heart. I'm still reading "Beach Music" and I'm stunned. It's definitely in the top three books I've read in my life. One page I'm laughing; the next I'm crying, and at one time I was laughing and crying at the same time!! How could that be?? God bless you with His joy, for giving so much to the human race. With Love (as a brother) James (Santiago) McAllister
