Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - September 8, 2016

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.

Angel Catbird

Angel Catbird
by Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood wrote a superhero comic book! It's called Angel Catbird and it's about a genetic engineer whose DNA gets merged with a cat and an owl, which makes him unique among the story’s, uh, other cat people. Humorous, pulp-inspired action ensues, with lots of cat puns.


by Pascal Girard

Girard’s Nicolas is a work that revisits the death of his little brother and the larger effects of this loss on his current behaviours and habits. This new edition of Nicolas is complete with a brand new introduction and a new story of his relationship with his surviving brother, Joel. Nicolas is a delicate, minimalist portrait of the many faces of mourning, identified with surprising humour and pathos.

Against Everything

Against Everything
by Mark Greif

Mark Greif, one of the founding editors of acclaimed literary magazine n+1, has a new collection of essays. Entitled Against Everything, Greif addresses contemporary topics like the tyranny of exercise, food snobbery, the crisis of policing, the impact of the Occupy movement, and the demise of the hipster, with a contrarian intelligence that has earned him comparisons to figures as diverse as Susan Sontag and Henry David Thoreau.

Oh She Glows Every Day

Oh She Glows Every Day
by Angela Liddon

The Oh She Glows Every Day cookbook is the hotly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Oh She Glows cookbook. Her new title features more than one hundred easy-to-make whole-foods and plant-based recipes to keep you glowing every day of the year.

To Be Or Not to Be

To Be Or Not to Be
by Ryan North

Ryan North (celebrated for his work on the deadpan Dinosaur Comics, as well as Marvel's Squirrel Girl and Adventure Time comics), has followed up his first choose-your-own-adventure adaptation of Romeo and Juliet incredibly fast. To Be or Not to Be, his second Shakespearean romp for young readers, comes only months after the release of its predecessor, with illustrations from dozens of comics luminaries.
