Paul Quarrington

The news couldn’t be sadder for the people who loved Paul the man, Paul the writer and Paul the performer. He was a personal idol of mine, someone I regarded as both a friend and an exemplar. His GG-winning book Whale Music, its voice, its great empathy and its gentle humour, inspired me more than any book ever has.

For visitors to AuthorsAloud, it’s worth remembering that Paul did a reading for us a couple of years ago, from his Giller-shortlisted book Galveston. If you’d like to spend a few minutes listening to Paul’s voice and remembering what he contributed to our lives, visit here.
