The Owner's Manual to Terrible Parenting

The Owner's Manual to Terrible Parenting
by Guy Delisle

Drawn and Quarterly has just released the English translation of Guy Delisle's The Owner's Manual to Terrible Parenting, which follows A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting (2013) and Even More Bad Parenting Advice (2014). Delisle, best known for his graphic travelogues (including Jerusalem:Chronicles from the Holy City and Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea), gives us his worst and most hilarious parenting tips in these comics.

Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl

Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl
by Carrie Brownstein

Carrie Brownstein is the guitarist in pioneering rock band Sleater-Kinney and the creator/co-star of the wildly popular television show Portlandia. Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl (Riverhead Books) is Brownstein's debut. It's a candid, funny, and deeply personal look at making a life—and finding yourself—in music. Browstein captures the experience of coming into her own as a driven female performer in the 90s, and finding community in the then-burgeoning world of underground feminist punk-rock.

My Life on the Road

My Life on the Road
by Gloria Steinem

Gloria Steinem, celebrated writer, activist, organizer, and leader, has written road book about her life as a traveler. My Life on the Road gives a candid account of Steinem's touring years, during which she was involved in a wide range of social activism and movements. Her accounts of learning about social activism from women in India, working as a journalist in the 1960s, founding Ms. magazine, and traveling to the 1977 National Women's Conference provide much inspiration.

Brave Enough

Brave Enough
by Cheryl Strayed

This beautifully designed little volume collects more than one hundred quotes and thoughts from celebrated writer and advice columnist Cheryl Strayed (Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things). She is funny and honest, and displays an expansive belief in the human capacity for love, compassion, forgiveness, and endurance.
