What people are saying about "Quickies" & "Quickies Too"

"When the ordinary isn't. Just walking through a hotel lobby and passing Henry Mancini, or sitting at a table directly next to Burt Reynolds, or telling stories from Jack Buck (Hall of Fame broadcaster), or the piccolo player from the St. Louis Symphony, Don Marquess captures in a few pages terrific, funny, human and humane stories from his first 80 years.
No villains, no politics, just true life experiences that provide us a smile and life philosophies. A delight to read and enjoy."

David I. Berland, MD
Noted Child Psychiatrist

"I LOVE IT! It is funny and truly captures my father, Jack Buck. It is so sweet. It brought him back for me for the day. Love that."

Joe Buck
Lead pLay-by-play announcer ESPN

"These short (very short) stories by Don P. Marquess, I would term "Thurberesque" being very reminiscent of James Thurber. I have used Don's photos on the covers of 5 of my books, now he is entering into competition with me. He writes just as he speaks, and his writings are all true. Each one caused a big fat grin from me, and a few of them a giant belly laugh."

Witty and endearing, Quickies Too is a rollicking, eclectic compilation of
reminiscences by acclaimed photographer and accomplished brick peddler, Don P. Marquess, that you won't want to miss.

Bob Belden
CEO The Belden Brick Co.

"Don Marquess has a special and very unique eye for seeing humor in everyday life situations. His sense of irony and timing is fully realized with his true life twists and pranks that result in very interesting stories. Don's memory in these comedic anecdotes is flawless."

Jan Gippo
Master Piccoloist and writer for "Flute Talk"

"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."
