Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - August 17, 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.

King-Cat #77

King-Cat #77
by John Porcellino

John Porcellino has been churning out charming and insightful comics and stories (or, Comix + Stories) since 1989. The newest edition of King-Cat again demonstrates Porcellino’s wholeheartedness in his distinct, spare style.

Sea, Land, Shadow

Sea, Land, Shadow

Sea, Land, Shadow, a startling book by experimental Japanese poet Kazuko Shiraishi, is the 23rd notch in the wonderful New Directions Poetry Pamphlet series.

Across the Vapour Gulf

Across the Vapour Gulf
by Will Alexander

Will Alexander is not your typical avant-garde poet (which, yes, is an oxymoron). The American’s swirling, psychic craft is marked by its lexical density and willingness to explore the farthest reaches of human understanding. This is #22 in the New Directions Poetry Pamphlet series.

My Heart Hemmed

My Heart Hemmed
by Marie Ndiaye

French writer Marie Ndiaye published her first novel at age seventeen, and has won the prestigious Prix Goncourt. My Heart Hemmed In is an uncanny novel of paranoia and flash-floods from the darkest corners of selfhood.

š! #29 'Celebration' (kuš! Comics)

š! #29 'Celebration' (kuš! Comics)
by Kazuko Shiraishi

The Latvia-based kuš! Comics is celebrating their 10th anniversary! While their first issue featured only one Latvian artist, this installment contains almost exclusively Baltic cartoonists, with comics ranging from the bizarre to the bewildering to the beautiful.
