Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - November 11, 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.

The Big Green Tent

The Big Green Tent
by Ludmila Ulitskaya, translated by Polly Gannon

Internationally acclaimed Russian novelist Ulitskaya uses the tale of three childhood friends who become dissidents to paint a much broader portrait of the late Soviet period, and of Russian literature itself. Originally published five years ago, it is now available to us in English, thanks to this praised translation by Polly Gannon!

See You Next Tuesday

See You Next Tuesday
by Jane Mai

Koyama Press brings us this collection of guileless diary comics by Brooklyn artist Jane Mai. Our twenty-something narrator battles through ennui and elation, heartbreak and terrible bathroom disasters.

Drinking at the Movies

Drinking at the Movies
by Julia Wertz

Koyama also brings us this new edition of Julia Wertz's first graphic novel, this time with an absurdly charming handwritten intro by Janeane Garofolo (did you know that Garofalo can't type?)! We join Wertz as she navigates a spontaneous move from San Francisco to New York with her characteristic deadpan humour.

Hotels of North America

Hotels of North America
by Rick Moody

The newest from noted American author Rick Moody. Moody tells the darkly comic life story of the eccentric Reginald Edward Morse through Morse's numerous reviews on until Morse himself disappears and Moody and the reader are left to puzzle out the remaining fragments of his narrative.

Cabinet Magazine Issue 57: Catastrophe

Cabinet Magazine Issue 57: Catastrophe

The Catastrophe issue of our favourite esoteric art and culture quarterly assembles articles about meteorite impacts, catastrophe bonds, underground luxury shelters, and even a transcription of a radio piece by Walter Benjamin about the Lisbon earthquake of 1755.
