Canadian Book Advent Calendar (Day 17) - "Q" is for Quarrington


For this year’s advent calendar, I am recommending Canadian authors/books found on Schatje’s Shelves.  Again, to make things more interesting/challenging, I will use the alphabet, skipping “X” and “Z”.  In total, I propose to focus on 50 Canadian writers, an early nod to Canada's 150th birthday next year.

“Q” is for Paul Quarrington
Quarrington was a Canadian novelist, playwright, filmmaker, and musician.
  
Novels (which I recommend):

King Leary (winner of 1988 Stephen Leacock Medal and winner of 2008 Canada Reads)

Whale Music (winner of 1989 Governor-General’s Award and nominated for 1990 Stephen Leacock Medal)
