Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - January 9, 2014

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.

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

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

Fool Magazine #4

Fool Magazine #4

The fourth installment of Sweden-based gastronomic magazine Fool is devoted to all-things Italian. Inside you'll find an eternal guide to Rome, an homage to Fellini, a feature about up and coming Italian-Norwegian chef Christian Puglisi of Copenhagen, a family tree of noteworthy Italian culinary personalities, and much more!


by Nicolas Ménard

Montreal expat Nicolas Ménard, currently studying abroad in London at the Royal College of Art, has self-published Elsewhere, a collection of poems about love and loss, illustrated in contrasting hues of vivid blue and red. Available in an extremely limited run of just 150 copies! Also available in French.

Leaving the Sea

Leaving the Sea
by Ben Marcus

Leaving the Sea is a brilliant new collection of envelope-pushing short stories from Ben Marcus, author of 2012's widely praised The Flame Alphabet. The stories within are imaginative, stylistically experimental, darkly funny, and bizarre in equal measure. Marcus probes the deepest realms of the human psyche through the forays of his protagonists into various anxiety-ridden situations. Stories designed to plunge right into your brain and mess with your neurons!

Tenth of December

Tenth of December
by George Saunders

Fresh from making the rounds of year end top ten lists for 2013, Saunders' critically lauded collection of short stories, Tenth of December is now out in paperback. If you haven't already picked up a copy of this book of moving, poignant and innovative stories, now is a perfect time to remedy that.

On Such a Full Sea

On Such a Full Sea
by Chang-Rae Lee

In a departure from his previous works, Lee's latest novel takes place in a dystopian future version of America, where disenfranchised workers live in settlements that exist solely to service the needs of the elite. Tackling big themes like free will vs. fate, tapping into contemporary late-capitalist anxieties, and written in Lee's characteristically elegant prose, On Such a Full Sea is a captivating read indeed.
