Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - January 30, 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.


by David Lynch

Though he may be best known for his iconic films (and the beloved T.V. series Twin Peaks) David Lynch is also an accomplished multi-media artist. This book is a collection of works from his recent exhibition at the Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery in Los Angeles, curated by Brett Littman. Lynch's original photos and paintings explore the tension between image and text, and ask the viewer to unpack the question "what's in a name?". A must-have for fans of Lynch's dreamlike, otherworldly vision!

La collectionneuse

La collectionneuse
by Pascal Girard

A fictionalized memoir by D+Q author Pascal Girard, recounting the romance that ensues when a recently single Pascal, who is living with friends and nursing an injured back after suffering a running accident, spots a woman stealing a copy of one of his own books from a book store. Characteristically hilarious and charming, Pascal's latest comedy of errors is a delight. Look for the English edition titled Petty Theft, coming this spring from D+Q!

For Today I Am A Boy

For Today I Am A Boy
by Kim Fu

Canadian writer Kim Fu’s debut novel, For Today I Am a Boy is a startling, often heart-wrenching, and very relevant and necessary read! Fu takes on complicated family relationships, questions of race and gender, and the idea of what constitutes “community”, with grace and empathy.

Granta #126: Do You Remember

Granta #126: Do You Remember

The latest issue of short fiction quarterly magazine Granta features pieces in which the writers remember, or invent, scenes from their own lives and the lives of others. You can expect stories by such literary luminaries as Ann Beattie, Lydia Davis, Lorrie Moore, Norman Rush and Joy Williams, as well as photo essays by Brigitte Grignet and Yuri Kozyrev, and Emily Dickinson collage art by Janet Malcolm.

Comics Art

Comics Art
by Paul Gravett

Paul Gravett happens to be one of today's foremost experts on comics art, so you can be sure that his book on the subject is thoroughly researched and comprehensive. Comics Art runs the gamut of comics art in its historical context, from the genre's earliest incarnations to contemporary online comics. Throughout the book, Gravett traces the influencing factors that have shaped comics into one of the most innovative, exciting, creative art forms around.
