Pat Conroy

His stories move through the southern landscape like the rivers and tides he so eloquently writes about. For years Pat Conroy struggled with being southern, with addiction, with writing. And recently he announced he was clean and sober, and ready to entertain us yet again with his unique perspective on southern life.

Now he is in peril, threatened by cancer. He says he is prepared to fight the good fight. We wish him success.

Talk about South Carolina!
