Librairie Drawn & Quarterly

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

Every week, Montreal's Librairie Drawn & Quarterly bookstore recommends a selection of new books, including fiction, art books, magazines, and comics.

Animals with Sharpies

Animals with Sharpies
by Michel Dumontier and Neil Farber

The newest collection from ex-Royal Art Lodgers Dumontier & Farber and that means more of their amazingly witty and dark-humoured paintings which feature a number of -yes- animals with sharpies scribbling their wills, grocery lists, messages to lovers -both ex and current - and slogans. Funny weirdness abounds.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane
by Neil Gaiman

Hotly anticipated, Gaiman's newest is a spooky rumination on friendship, family, and how the choices we have to make as adults are influenced by our magical childhood experiences. Gaiman's first "adult" novel since 2005's Anansi Boys, this is gonna be one 2013's big ones. Librairie Drawn & Quarterly is pleased to present An Evening with Neil Gaiman, August 7th at the Ukrainian Federation in Montreal.

The Sad Passions

The Sad Passions
by Veronica Gonzalez Peña

Gonzalez Peña's follow-up to her 2007 novel twin time (this jacket showcasing another iconic photograph, this time by Francesca Woodman), The Sad Passions is an incredibly involving story -told Rashoman-style- of a middle-class Mexican family whose mothers and daughters endure the effects of undiagnosed mental illness. Do not let the dark theme deter you; this is a necessary summer read.

The Travel Almanac

The Travel Almanac

Issue No. 5 of our favorite Berlin-based "traveling & temporary habitation" magazine! Interviews with Barry Gifford, Paz De La Huerta, Canadian artist Hugh Scott-Douglas, cover model Willem Dafoe (following in the esteemed footsteps of David Lynch, Will Oldham, Udo Kier and Harmony Korine), a feature on twelve international hotels and bunch of pretty photos make this fatter-than-previous little tome perfect vacation reading.

No Fits, Nilson!

No Fits, Nilson!
by Zachariah Ohora

Amelia’s friend, a blue gorilla named Nilson, is great fun... except for his gigantic tantrums! He throws fits at the supermarket, in the car, and at bedtime—the tiniest thing is enough to set him off. When Amelia and Nilson both get a timeout for Nilson’s bad behaviour, Amelia finds all sorts of ways to keep him calm, reminding him “No fits, Nilson!”
