“Don Marquess is a modern day Damon Runyon who observes the world around him through
the prism of an acerbic wit and a natural story teller’s take on the human condition. And
remember, one quickie leaves you wanting another.”
— Drew Karandjeff

Don’s eloquent yet playful writing style transports readers to another time and place, evoking
a sense of nostalgia and wonder that is both entertaining and delightful. His stories are
not only charming, but also serve as a beautiful reminder of the joy that can be found in
the simplest things in life. Don’s ability to share such fond memories through his writing,
reminds us of how the power of storytelling connects us all to our past.

For over 40 years I have admired Don’s ability to remember his experiences and make them
come alive through his extraordinary skill in telling a story. The narratives are all true, and
now, whenever I need some good humor to brighten my day, I can reach for a volume of
Quickies on my book shelf. I am handing down both volumes to my granddaughters so they
too can be reminded of exceptional storytelling.

World Class piccoloist Writer of two acclaimed books on the piccolo
Don Marquess did it again!
Courage, humor, insight, beautifully recalled life experiences are in the second collection
and on brilliant display. These stories capture time and place in a way that gently guides
the reader through a lived life leaving one a smile and sense of connection. Whether it’s his
grandfather railing about the cost of hearing aids, getting one over on his big brother, or
restoring Nikki Caplin to her rightful place as “the balloon guru in St. Louis,” Don Marquess
hits the mark. A fun and wonderful read!
