A North Carolina native, Dr. Quick was raised in Detroit, Michigan, where he attended St. Mary of Redford parochial school and Cranbrook. He returned south to attend Duke University for undergraduate and graduate degrees before teaching in the North Carolina Public Schools. He moved to Athens in 1994 to attend UGA where he earned a Masters with a thesis on Machiavelli and Shakespeare’s Henriad and a Ph.D. with a dissertation on the Southern novels of Cormac McCarthy.
