Librairie Drawn & Quarterly

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

n + 1 No. 17

n + 1 No. 17

This edition of Brooklyn's darling lit periodical may be "The Evil Issue," but we promise you won’t get any bad karma just by taking a gander. Extra bonus: contributors, including Franco Moretti, Norman Rush, and store fave Chris Kraus, have packed in "more appearances from Satan than ever!"

Anthology No. 12

Anthology No. 12

Design inspiration for those who aim for spaces saturated with personality: the vibe is equal parts white-washed brick and sleeve tattoos. And as you're drooling over this issue's featured interiors, you can satisfy those questionable urges to peek in strangers' windows AND learn to make the perfect Pimm's cup.

Junket is Nice

Junket is Nice
by Dorothy Kunhardt

You probably don’t spend a lot of time thinking about junket (a variety of custard, by the way), but after reading this delightfully weird little book, you won’t get the word out of your head. The New York Review Children's Collection reprints classics like this 1933 gem from the author of Pat the Bunny.

The Infatuations

The Infatuations
by Javier Marías

This celebrated Spanish novelist''s newest book has the trappings of a murder mystery—narrated by the witness of a seemingly random stabbing—but Marías is concerned with larger questions than simply whodunit. Cunning digressions paint a revealing portrait of obsession and aspiration.

The Color Master

The Color Master
by Aimee Bender

Sisters mending torn-up tigers in a Malaysian jungle? A woman who may need to break up with her ogre husband after he ate their children by mistake? L.A.'s Bender weaves fantastical yarns that are both wickedly funny and straight-up wicked. This is her third book, but she’s just hitting the stride of her boundlessly inventive charm.
