Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - September 28, 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.

Montreal-based artist Connor Willumsen is “like Joyce with a joystick” in his latest comic book Anti-Gone, with striking dialogue and a complex narrative flitting between a virtual present and a dystopian future.


by David Chariandy

Recently longlisted for the Giller Prize, David Chariandy’s sophomore novel Brother is a precisely-wrought, achingly affecting account of the bond between brothers, and how they cope with the violence that surrounds them.
