Synopsis

The author of ten novels, Paul Quarrington was also a musician (most recently in the band Porkbelly Futures), an award-winning screenwriter and filmmaker, and an acclaimed non-fiction writer. Paul Quarrington's novel, Galveston , was nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize; King Leary won the CBC's 2008 Canada Reads competition and the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal; and Whale Music was awarded the Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction. Recently, Porkbelly Futures' self-titled second CD has been released to widespread acclaim, and Paul Quarrington's short film adaptation of The Ravine , entitled Pavane , was featured in the Moving Stories Short Film Festival. Paul Quarrington's non-fiction writing includes books on some of his favourite pastimes, such as fishing, hockey, and music. A regular contributor of book reviews, travel columns, and journalism to Canada's national newspapers and magazines, he also taught writing at Humber College and the University of Toronto. Paul Quarringon passed away in January 2010.

About The Book Scouts

Welcome to The Book Scouts! We\'re glad you decided to stop in. We\'re readers and collectors, just like you, and we\'ve now been selling on the internet for over 5 years to help support that collection! You\'ll find lots of high quality books in all our categories. Mystery, Science Fiction and Fantasy are our specialties, but we\'ve got tonnes of other interesting books - many signed by the author! Most of our books which were published within the last 5 years are purchased from a book wholesaler and are in excellent condition. We obtain 90% of our SIGNED BOOKS from them as well. These books were signed for the original publisher by the author. Due to excess inventory they sell them off and we pass on the deals to you!! If you have any questions, please just let us know! Thanks! The Book Scouts (Chris, Sue & Jim)
