"Robert Quillen's tongue was planted so deeply in his cheek that I doubt he could speak clearly. The Voice of Small-Town America is satire, sarcasm, and uncommonly rational observation in its highest form. Someone needs to pick up where Quillen left off. This book is flat-out fun, and proves that the head-scratching perplexities of 1920–1948 haven't been eradicated."—George Singleton, author of Work Shirts for Madmen
"In The Voice of Small-Town America John Hammond Moore has made available to readers a rich compilation of the writings of Robert Quillen. Once again the 'sage of Fountain Inn' speaks in all the freshness and candor that he brought for three decades not only to the South Carolina upstate but to the entire nation. In addition, Moore has provided an insightful context for Quillen's work in his introduction and chapter notes. Today's readers will be as intrigued as Quillen's original audience by the frank assessment of life in a small town in the twentieth century."—A. V. Huff, Jr., professor emeritus of history, Furman University
