Bill Hayes is on his way to becoming one of those rare authors who can tackle just about any subject in book form. … Five Quarts [is] a breezy ride of a book that is disarmingly nonchalant about leaping around through history and returning, always, to tales of Hayes’ sisters and his longtime partner, Steve.
