About the Author
CHARLIE QUIMBY is the author of Monument Road, an Indie Next List pick and Booklist Editors' Choice. He began his writing career as playwright and arts journalist, veered into corporate communications and then founded a marketing agency that now purrs along without him. Along the way, he collected awards and developed the notion he had a few good novels in him. A native Coloradan and adopted Minnesotan, he is at home in both places.
"Inhabited spotlights the complex forces behind the spaces we call home."


"The lives of Quimby's finely drawn characters interweave to produce a panorama as wide and full of light as the near-desert setting. Skillful and delightful turns of phrase make reading this evocative novel a pleasure."

--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review

"Quimby's descriptions of Colorado's high country show a painterly intriguing examination of people and a place in transition."


"Quimby's experiences as a Colorado native and an advocate for the homeless provide the novel's backbone, but its real strength is in its cast of vivid, relatable individuals. Recommend to readers attuned to Kent Haruf, Annie Proulx, Laura Pritchett, and Bonnie Nadzam."


"An outstanding novel with memorable, believable characters who deal simultaneously with the challenges of reclaiming and redeeming themselves as well as the landscapes that define their communities."


"Charlie Quimby is a writer with a big talent, big heart, and big social conscience. In his second novel, Inhabited, characters finely drawn and memorable live amidst the crisscrossing lines of moral conscience, political juggling and economic expediency, a tough neighborhood. I was staggered by the authenticity of these people and their dilemmas."

--FAITH SULLIVAN, author of Goodnight, Mr. Wodehouse

"A dramatic, honest, humane portrait of a Colorado city in the throes of great change and great choice. A vivid, compelling story delivered with 21st-century true grit."

--ALYSON HAGY, author of Boleto

"A thoroughly enjoyable novel that masterfully takes the reader on an emotionally rewarding exploration of 'home' and the power the concept has on the human psyche."

--JONATHAN ODELL, author of Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League

"A layered drama about our responsibilities to each other and the blunders and scars we must endure. I salute Charlie Quimby for following the path of Steinbeck and Orwell in writing empathetic portraits of the ignored and the shunned."
--JIM LYNCH, author of Before the Wind
