Reviews

Pat Conroy was a force for good in our world. With courage and grace, he brought the gifts of the devastating beauty of his writing and his transcendent vision of the human heart to the lives of the readers he touched and the writers he inspired.--Barbra Streisand "from the foreword to Our Prince of Scribes "
Pat Conroy could write with an elegance that made most writers either envious or hopeless, yet was generous and encouraging, a champion. If a man can live in memory, it is Pat Conroy.--Rick Bragg "Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All Over but the Shoutin', Ava's Man, and The Prince of Frogtown. "
What could be better than so many voices coming together to celebrate Pat Conroy? This book is a testament to the enormous hold he had on our hearts and minds.--Ann Patchett "New York Times best-selling author of Bel Canto and Commonwealth "
In reading this collection, I felt Pat Conroy come back to life--his heroism, his kindness, his unparalleled generosity, his vulnerability, his raunchy, wicked humor, his love for family and the low country.--Dannye Romine Powell "author and book editor for the Charlotte Observer "
A compelling read that illuminates the man behind the myth, a writer's writer, a fantastic storyteller, a flawed genius, and an exceptionally loyal friend.--Kirkus Reviews
Conroy's expansive sensibility proved seductive to those who loved him. His friends and acquaintances tend to evoke him with a chorus of superlatives, sometimes cloyingly so. It's what gives Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy the frequently breathless tone of a fan magazine.--Danny Heitman "The Wall Street Journal "
