Becky anything and everything by Pat Conroy

Jamie When I grow up I want to be able to write like Pat Conroy. I've had the pleasure of meeting him a few times and he is a true gentleman.

Ronna My husband went to school with him. I also met and heard him speak at a CASA ( Court Appointed Special Advocate - working with abused and neglected kids) conference. He speaks as descriptively and passionately as he writes. Love all of his books. One less known but spectacular, about a real person from their Citadel days is "The Boo" .

Ron Miller Pat is one of the great writers of Southern Fiction of our time. The Great Santini delves into Pat Conroy's private life as a child growing up with a father that he hated and loved.
