Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - July 6, 2017

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 Art of Death: Writing the Final Story

The Art of Death: Writing the Final Story
by Edwidge Danticat

The newest notch in Graywolf Press’ wonderful The Art of Series—edited by Charles Baxter—is The Art of Death by Edwidge Danticat, a simultaneously deeply personal account of her mother’s death and a profound exploration of death as physiological process and spiritual phenomenon.

Lessons on Expulsion: Poems

Lessons on Expulsion: Poems
by Erika L. Sánchez

Erika L. Sánchez, author of YA novel I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, boasts an extremely physical lyricism, and picks the scab with a book of clawing poems. “Again and again, / an umbrella / opens inside me.”

Policing the Black Man

Policing the Black Man
by Angela J. Davis

A vital new text on the Black experience in America, this comprehensive anthology—edited by author and professor of law Angela J. Davis—contains essays from some of the nation’s most erudite and respected criminal justice experts and legal scholars, dissecting and critiquing how the criminal justice system impacts the lives of African American boys and men.

Angel Catbird Vol. 3: The Catbird Roars

Angel Catbird Vol. 3: The Catbird Roars
by Margaret Atwood, Johnnie Christmas, Tamra Bonvillain

The third and final installment of Christmas and Atwood’s brainchild is perhaps the most madcap to date, with all-out war versus the Evil Rat Army on the menu for our cast of half-cat heroes.

Knots: Stories

Knots: Stories
by Gunnhild Øyehaug, trans. Kari Dickson

With stories ranging from a young Rimbaud’s extinguished passions to one titled “Fortune Smiles on the Mona Lisa”, Norwegian poet Gunnhild Øyehaug’s Knots is rich in its variety, and equally so in its razor-wit.
