Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - December 7, 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 Green Hand and Other Stories

The Green Hand and Other Stories
by Nicole Claveloux

This new NYRC collection offers us the first ever English translation of French artist Nicole Claveloux's 1970's surreal kooky out-of-this-world comics. Turn to this spectacular collection for talking plants, depressed birds, sassy babies, and the most amazing array of colours you can handle. To quote the artist, these stories are "smiles that bite."

Blood and Guts in High School

Blood and Guts in High School
by Kathy Acker

Following Chris Kraus' refreshing biography, After Kathy Acker, is this new anniversary edition of the book that propelled Acker into the mainstream. It's a raw and provocative story of a young girl finding her way through sex, travel, and dreams.


by Katherine Faw

Following along the same lines as Kathy Acker's interests, this new short novel is about money, sex, and power. It's a nihilistic yet seductive read of a call-girl's clients and routines. Intrigued?

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race
by Reni Eddo-Lodge

Required reading for nations in denial about their preserved whiteness. This clear-eyed eloquent collection of essays gets straight to the root of the problem and the enormous misunderstandings on race continually perpetuated.

No Time to Spare

No Time to Spare
by Ursula K. Le Guin

Collecting the best of Le Guin's online writing, this new publication is a party mix of intimate thoughts and considerations. Each entry is warm and unexpected, touching on everything from children fan letters to the necessity of anger to exorcism.
