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

Love & Rockets New Stories 6

Love & Rockets New Stories 6
by the Hernandez Brothers

Can you believe that Love & Rockets has been going steady for more than 30 years now? Long-time L&R fans will notice the cover of this issue, featuring “Killer” in a pose that unmistakably calls to mind Luba (and also Iron Maiden’s Eddie!) complete with hammer in hand. This is just one example of the ways in which these brand new stories interweave the lives of new characters with those of more familiar ones, all in the world of the ground-breaking Hernandez Brothers’ creation.

The Wes Anderson Collection

The Wes Anderson Collection
by Matt Zoller Seitz

The subject of the first book from film critic Matt Zoller Seitz is - you guessed it - iconic American director Wes Anderson. This meticulously researched and curated collection of Anderson ephemera is divided into seven chapters corresponding to each of his films. Inside, you’ll find enough interviews, tidbits, illustrations and general behind the scenes goodies to satiate even the most rabid Anderson fan!

The Circle

The Circle
by Dave Eggers

From the Pulitzer-nominated man behind McSweeney’s comes a cautionary tale about the threats posed by our society’s overzealous embracing of technology. Allegorical and satirical, with plenty of overt nods to Orwell, the book’s message is also an earnest warning about the hazards of corporate culture and social media obsession run amok.

The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2013

The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2013
ed. Dave Eggers

Dave Eggers is clearly a man with his fingers in a lot of pies! In addition to writing his own recent novel (see above) he’s also been busy editing the latest edition of the Best American Nonrequired Reading. Showcasing the year’s best and brightest American short-fiction, non-fiction, poetry and comics authors, this annual collection has something to tickle the fancy of every reader. Especially awesome is the fact that D+Q author Lynda Barry is featured this year with full-color reproductions of strips from The Freddie Stories!

How Music Works

How Music Works (paperback edition)
by David Byrne

Perhaps best known for his role as the frontman of beloved band Talking Heads, David Byrne’s How Music Works has also won him much renown as an author since its initial publication in 2012. Delving into plenty of autobiographical and Talking Heads-related material, Byrne also provides a uniquely personal, innovative and fascinating take on music theory and history. Now out for the first time in paperback, the book has also been revised an updated for this new edition.
