Hey up there, Pat Conroy... I send Great Love!
Many years ago (20?) I saw the movie The Prince of Tides and followed it up by reading the book. That was how I discovered the lovliness that is Pat Conroy. Since then I have read all of his books numerous times. He is easily one of my favorite authors. He writes with such lyrical beauty about pain and darkness. He reminds me that I love language; that I love the beauty of words. He reminds me that I am a reader and why I am a reader.
Pat Conroy passed away on 4 March 2015. This death hits hard. Every reader could feel this one -- even if they don't know it yet.
Thankfully Pat's publisher, wife and friends put together some of his blog posts as a gift to his readers -- a gift to me. I owe them a Thank You note!
Scott Brick voices the book with emotion and tenderness... perfect for the words and the man.

What a wonderful tribute to one of the greatest authors of modern times. Any fan of Mr. Conroy will be enthralled with this collection.One person who wrote a tribute was one of my favorite Southern writers,, Rick Bragg. It was beautiful, as was everything written by or for Pat.
I don't know what it is about Southern writers but they are exquisite storytellers.
I was truly devastated when I heard Mr. Conroy died last March. The idea of never having a new book of his to enjoy and savor was hard for me. I even had some close family and friends send ME condolences as they knew how much I loved this author. And to make things WORSE, he was working on a new novel at the time of his death.
He was magic.I am so grateful for his body of work which will be mine forever. I haven't the words to describe how much I loved his books.
My personal favorite was Beach Music. It's a shame Audible doesn't have the unabridged copy narrated by Frank Muller. It is absolutely breathtaking and I listen to it every year, as well as The Prince of Tides. Scott Brick always delivers and he did with this volume.I will miss Pat Conroy for the rest of my life.His mastery of words truly touched my soul.
You were a "Great Love", Mr. Conroy.
