Paul Quarrington

It’s truly a tragedy that Canada has lost one of its best novelists at such a young age. Paul Quarrington passed away yesterday.

I had the good fortune to have Paul as my mentor for a writing course and his book, Boy on the Back of the Turtle, helped inspire my wife and I to go on a trip to the Galapagos Islands.

If you want to read a truly great novel, find a copy of Quarrington’s Whale Music.
