"What a delightful book! Style, shape, voice--it's charming and original. I just can't think of anything like it… a book about the dominion of childhood, about memory and dream, about wisdom and ignorance, and most especially… about the meaning and value of community."

Molly Gloss, author of The Jump-Off Creek


"Fool's Hill isn't about Port Orford, really. It is about the community, and life, and death, and the things that are meaningful inside each of us but somehow not understandable to others. Quick makes them understandable. Chances are you've never read anything quite like Fool's Hill. So take a chance. You might well be touched in ways you never imagined."
