I will review some recent developments in the study of black holes and the information paradox. I will describe the importance of classic results from statistical mechanics and quantum-information theory in these developments. I will also explain the unusual localization of quantum information in quantum gravity --- an insight that emerges from a study of black holes but appears to be a more general property of gravitational theories.
