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


by Shigeru Mizuki

D&Q is so excited to finally be releasing a collection of Mizuki's classic gegika series in North America! Already near and dear to the hearts of Japanese readers, Kitaro the one-eyed monster boy and a cast of rambunctious yokai friends and foes make for a thoroughly weird and delightful read.

Looking For Palestine

Looking For Palestine
by Najla Said

A thoughtful memoir about growing up as a Lebanese-Palestinian-American in New York, this is actor/playwright Said's first book. Drawing on material from her solo show, Palestine, she neither shies away from the political difficulties of her cultural perspective nor loses the personal heart of her story.

Put A Egg On It No. 7

Put A Egg On It No. 7

Irreverent and endearingly ungrammatically-titled food journal out of Brooklyn, printed on trademark mint-green stock. This time: dumpling recipes, adorably illustrated kitchen tips, and real-deal food photography from around the world. Our favourite part: SO many portraits of people stuffing their faces.

The Complete Short Stories of James Purdy

The Complete Short Stories of James Purdy
by James Purdy

Inveterate outsider and quintessentially controversial American writer finally has his stories collected in a single volume. As the introduction from John Waters underscores, this "wickedly funny feel-bad book" will invite gleefully indulgent commiseration from devotees and new initiates alike.

Once Upon a Northern Night

Once Upon a Northern Night
by Jean E. Pendziwol, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault

Thunder Bay’s Pendziwol and one of our fave local illustrators team up for this warm and cozy story about snuggling up in bed through a cold, snowy night. Arsenault's gorgeously organic pencil drawings are sure to take the edge off that mid-August inkling that winter’s on its way again.
