Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - July 27, 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.

These Possible Lives

These Possible Lives
by Fleur Jaeggy

Very much like a rose and its thorns, Fleur Jaeggy’s hypnotic new essay collection is equal parts ethereal and macabre. The Swiss writer made waves for her excellent translations of Marcel Schwob and Thomas de Quincey into Italian, both of whom are strung-up in the puppetry-prose of These Possible Lives.

Goodbye, Vitamin

Goodbye, Vitamin
by Rachel Khong

Rachel Khong, executive editor of the brilliant and now sadly defunct Lucky Peach Magazine, plunks the heroine of Goodbye, Vitamin square in a quarter-life crisis, yet has the deep insight and good humour to help her find her footing.

Black Panther: World of Wakanda

Black Panther: World of Wakanda
by Ta-Nehisi Coates & Roxane Gay

The incomparable Roxane Gay makes her comics debut with Black Panther: World of Wakanda, which dives into the back-story of the Midnight Angels, popular characters from Ta-Nehisi Coates’ excellent graphic series.

The Book of Miracles

The Book of Miracles
by Till-Holger Borchert

Full-page 16th-century depictions of the apocalypse… what more could you want? This trilingual (Fr., Eng., Ger.) edition was heralded as “one of the most spectacular discoveries in the field of Renaissance art” when it first surfaced several years ago.

Sex and Rage

Sex and Rage
by Eve Babitz

The triumphant rediscovery of artist and author Eve Babitz continues with this reissue of Sex and Rage, originally published in 1979, a novel which follows a starry-eyed girl navigating the dichotomy of America’s coasts.
