In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, periodicals, and comics.
Librairie Drawn & Quarterly is one of Montreal's premiere independent bookstores.
Art Comic #5
by Matthew Thurber
The final installment of Matthew Thurber’s Art Comic is here! The exploits in volume #5 include, but are not limited to, a pig brawl (“Ever heard of a Molotov Pigtail?”), a meowing crocodile, and toilet-bowl tubing.
Lyric Sexology Vol. 1
by Trish Salah
A groundbreaking work from Halifax-born writer/intellectual Trish Salah exploring trans identity. This new edition of Salah’s seminal book, featuring new poems, is from Montreal publisher Metonymy Press.
by Jenny Zhang
The elusive Jenny Zhang (bio reading simply: “A poet and writer living in New York City.”) is a fresh face in American letters—her new collection of short stories proves her to be an unabashed seer of the immigrant experience in America.
Titled after an Allen Ginsberg line, this deeply personal book from Vancouver-based artist Geoffrey Farmer—renowned for arduously crafted works of epic proportion—draws on his personal history to show how pain drips down generations.
The Cooking Gene
by Michael W. Twitty
This illuminating portrait of Southern cuisine comes from culinary historian Michael Twitty, who explores the provocative and racially-tense subject of who "owns" the food culture and tradition in the American South.
