"A Lowcountry Heart: Reflections on a Writing Life by Pat Conroy is a new nonfiction collection of letters, interviews, and magazine articles spanning Conroy's long literary career, supplemented by touching pieces from the beloved author's many friends. A Lowcountry Heart collects some of Conroy's most charming pieces of short nonfiction, many of them addressed directly to his readers with his habitual greeting, "Hey, Out There." Ranging across diverse subjects such as favorite recent reads, the challenge of getting motivated to exercise, and processing the loss of dearly missed friends, Conroy's lighthearted and eminently memorable pieces offer a unique window into the life of a true titan of Southern writing. In addition, A Lowcountry Heart also includes some of Conroy's most beloved speeches and interviews, a touching letter to his grandson, and a beautiful introduction from his widow, the novelist Cassandra King. Finally, the collection turns to remembrances of The Great Conroy, as he is lovingly titled by friends, including his eulogy. This moving tribute is sure to be a cherished keepsake for any true Conroy fan, and a lasting monument to one of the best-loved writers of contemporary American letters"--… (mais)

One of my favorite writers. Loved hearing the stories behind the novels and about the people he wrote about and why. Makes me want to read his books all over again. ( )

Reading this compilation of blog posts, speeches, interviews, etc. made me feel like I was re-reading old letters from a beloved friend who has passed away. You might call this book the most informal essay collection ever written. Mr. Conroy was not a fan of blogging and approached it with a healthy amount of skepticism, so the entries may seem a little random at first. But there are nuggets of beauty, insight, and humor in the randomness that make this a read more than worth your time, whether you have read Pat Conroy extensively or not. (The only book of his I've read is Beach Music, an all-time favorite of mine.)

Four and a half stars. Highly recommended. ( )

A posthumous collection of Conroy's blog and other short essays and speeches. His writing is most vivid when he is talking about his friends, and about the books he loves, which is why this didn't sing for me quite as much as [My Reading Life] did. But I felt I got a powerful sense of the man and his life, and having recently located my buried copy of [A Prince of Tides], I'll be nudging that up the tbr mountain. ( )

Mr. Conroy wrote books unlike anyone else, he was a magician storyteller and wove tales that explored the many layers of human nature. Fearless in his writing, his perfect wording could give any character or life event a voice — the frail families of the old South, uncertain love, the angst of loyal and betrayed friendship, the pain of suicide, and the infinity of human flaws — really, just awe-inspiring.

Cancer took him quickly in 2016, at age 70.

A Lowcountry Heart is a collection of his blog entries, articles, speeches and letters but also contains writings and eulogies by those that loved him. But fear not, this slender volume never treads into the saccharine, but instead is a joyful reflection of his life and times. Mr. Conroy shares his time in Vietnam, teachers in his life, his beloved Citadel, his adored second wife, and of course his love for the South Carolina lowcountry –the lifeblood of his books and his life.
