He was also a high school friend of songwriter Dan Hill , with whom he reunited toward the end of his life to collaborate on musical projects. His novel The Ravine was published in March At the time of his death, Quarrington had completed a short film adaptation of the work Pavane, and was collaborating on a television series adaptation of that novel, which he claimed to be semi-autobiographical.

He befriended many Canadian writers, including Timothy Findley. Quarrington and Findley held a mutual admiration for each other; when asked to provide a review quote for Home Game, Findley blurbed that Quarrington was "an extraordinary writer with a rare gift for pulling unique characters out of funny hats". Actor Maury Chaykin won best actor for his portrayal of the drug-addled Desmond Howl. He was a long-time board member of the Toronto Fringe Festival.

King Leary

Tagore In this book, King looks back on his life in hockey and with his family and friends. This is a choice from a member of my bookclub, otherwise I doubt that I would ever had read it. Alcoholism is also a recurring theme. King Leary is a poignant book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. His non-fiction writing included books on some of his favourite pastimes such as fishing, hockey and music. The author creates humour through Percival Leary, in both the way he talks about hockey and in the way he talks with his Irish tongue.
