The worlds of sports and entertainment provide the subjects and settings for much of Quarrington's work. Paul Quarrington's early novels, The Service , Home Game and The Life of Hope , introduce the author's comic vision and explore the mythic and moral structures of human behaviour. While the instability and disorder of experience are dramatized in his work, individual renewal through trial and suffering makes reality partially sensible.
In King Leary , which won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour, his interest in the quest narrative is reflected in the portrayal of Percival Leary, an aging former hockey player who remembers his past actions and their effects on people close to him. Whale Music , which won the Governor General's Award , examines the world of rock music through the drug-addled brain of its narrator, Des Howell.
