Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - June 13, 2013

In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, and comics.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly is one of Montreal's premiere independent bookstores.

I am proud to announce a new Largehearted Boy series today. Every week, Montreal's Librairie Drawn & Quarterly bookstore will recommend a selection of new books, including fiction, art books, magazines, and comics.


Bad Day Issue 15

Bad Day Issue 15

Bad Day is a "biannual cross-cultural interview magazine", founded in Toronto. This issue features interviews with John Baldessari, Jeanette Hayes, Charlie White, Ali Waese, How To Dress Well, a fashion spread with Ali Michaels, and other thoughtful exchanges.


Dumb #1

Dumb #1
by Georgia Webber

Dumb #2

Dumb #2
by Georgia Webber

Store friend and local comics artist Georgia Webber has created two gorgeous comics, DUMB #1 and DUMB #2. She started her DUMB project immediately after being diagnosed with a throat condition that left her unable to speak for six months. These two first installations (there will be more!) see her navigating doctor's appointments, government offices, and social situations in which she can no longer be her regular gregarious self, at least not vocally.


MONO.KULTUR #33: Kim Gordon

MONO.KULTUR #33: Kim Gordon

mono.kultur is an interview magazine based in Berlin. Each issue focuses on a particular person (past subjects have included Chris Ware, Grizzly Bear, Tilda Swinton and Ai Weiwei), through an interview, interspersed with images and other tantalizing fragments. In issue 33, Kim Gordon talks about her current project, Body/Head, noise music, noise paintings, Sonic Youth, artistic collaboration, and other topics of interest.


The Shining Girls

The Shining Girls
by Lauren Beukes

Offering a twist on the serial-killer genre, this suspenseful tale pits a would-be murder victim, Kirby, against a time-travelling serial killer whose obsessive mission is to hunt down and do away with all the "shining girls", young women living in various eras whose burning potential he seeks to extinguish. Kirby escapes this fate, however, and launches an investigation. Beukes' book is being praised as a new kind of thriller, both inventive and terrifying.


Taipei


Taipei

by Tao Lin

The latest, highly anticipated delivery of Tao Lin, who seems to be equally reviled/revered, sometimes by the same people, for his minimalist, perhaps "too real" depictions of twenty-somethings hanging out aimlessly, consuming various drugs, and engaging in drifting conversations and relationships with each other, often via gmail/texting. Bonus: a characteristically awkward scene in which the main character does a reading at our bookstore, after which, slightly addled by some MDMA, he proposes an illustrated children's book-poem with a whale punch-line to a bemused Chris, Drawn + Quarterly's publisher and editor-in-chief.
