Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - January 11, 2018

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 World Goes on

The World Goes on
by Laszlo Krasznahorkai

A new book by Booker Prize winner Laszlo Krasznahorkai is always an occasion to celebrate. When you tear yourself away from the prism brilliant cover, you'll find yourself immersed in lasting stories that collect the routines, desires, disappointments, and memories of his faraway characters.


by Ali Smith

Following Smith's Autumn is her second seasonal volume of a planned quartet. It's a frosty novel that begins with the sentence "God is dead" and doesn't give a chance for the reader to settle in and get cozy. The story zooms in and out of the lives of a group of inter-generational women.

Women at Work

Women at Work
by The Paris Review

Compiling interviews conducted by the Paris Review with 12 female writers over the course of six decades, this volume is a very special document indeed. Talking about writing process can be boring and repetitive, but these women are eloquent, brilliant, and so completely singular that they leave the reader dazzled, swooning in the dust.

How to Read Nancy

How to Read Nancy
by Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden

Read this book if you want to read the best book about comics, period (to quote The Comics Journal). It isn't just an obsessive book about how to read a single 1959 strip from the classic Nancy newspaper daily, but more broadly about how to read the through the complexities of visual storytelling compacted into such a seemingly simple form.

Witch Wife

Witch Wife
by Kiki Petrosino

Here is an intimate book of poetry about bodies and ghosts - grounded and weightless. Unsettled female bodies turn mystical in imaginings of what is possible.
