Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - July 2, 2015

In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, periodicals, and comics.

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


by Gilbert Hernandez

Love and Rockets artist Gilbert Hernandez has just come out with this genre bending mashup that mixes 1950s crime, horror, and sci-fi into one. A man finds himself on the streets with a lipstick smudge, someone else's suit and ID, and no memory of who he is. But this is not like the movie Momento or any other amnesia rooted story. The world created by Hernandez is strange and unsettling in all the best ways.


by Sarah Gerard

Behold, a short text on friendship - specifically on best friendship. Gerard writes to her past BFF, wrenchingly honest about the conflicting love and resentment felt towards her. This is a book on the emotional relationships that we carry with those who we were once, but no longer, so close to.

Fool 6 magazine

Fool 6 magazine

The latest issue of this Swedish food magazine is in. In it you will find a profile on Michelin starred chef Inaki Aizpitarte of French restaurant Le Chateaubriand, an article on how a new generation of Japanese chefs are finding their inspiration, and a look into the fascinating food culture of Anatolia, Turkey.


by Jane Mai

What a beautiful treasure this book is. What begins as a story of a sweet building friendship turns to one of vampires and murder. Artist Jane Mai creates a piercing world where acts of desire, rebellion, dependency, and, ultimately, refusal unfold in unexpected ways.

Black Glass

Black Glass
by Karen Joy Fowler

First published to great acclaim in 1998, this reissued hardcover edition of short stories includes a new introductory essay. Included are fifteen tales of satire, wit, and imagination that are sure to win you over in these humid days of summer.
