Novelist Pat Conroy, who announced last month that he was suffering from pancreatic cancer, has died, according to a statement from his publisher. Conroy was 70.

He wrote 'Prince of Tides' and 'The Great Santini', both of which were made into movies.

I listened to several interviews that he had given earlier. Quite a history. He has fond memories of his mother reading to him a bedtime, and had sad memories of his father. He often read because he knew when he was reading, his father wouldn't hit him.
