"Ryan Quinn has deftly managed to blend comedy, drama, and genuine pathos into an utterly compelling story of three friends who change one another's lives during the course of a single year at college. Improbably, the un-put-downable The Fall is Quinn's first novel. Clearly, American fiction has a lot to look forward to." - Steve Kluger, bestselling author of Last Days of Summer and Almost Like Being in Love
"Quinn's understanding of the human condition makes his first novel, "The Fall," an intriguing work. Weaving together the perspectives of three characters - a film buff fantasizing about a football player, a football star bored with his girlfriend and a burned-out classical musical prodigy - it examines their unexpected relationships at college.... It's a realistic look at contemporary friendships and coming of age, and it works because Quinn is not far removed from that world himself.” - Dan Woog, columnist and author of Jocks
"A fast-paced and sexy read, Quinn’s writing seamlessly weaves contemporary friendships and first love with intimate insight of the common struggles young adults face as they come to grips with their own independent identity." - Jase Peeples, gay.net (powered by OUT)
"The Fall is an emotional story packed with page-turning drama and characters depicted so realistically it seems like three autobiographies interwoven into one book." -PaperFrontiers.com
