Paul Quarrington: 1953 - 2010

News this morning that author and musician Paul Quarrington has died from his battle with lung cancer. Quarrington was an award-winning writer who won, among other things, the Governor General's Award for Fiction and the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. I've read only one of his books (Whale Music), but know he had built up a loyal readership from across the country over the years.

He'll be missed.
