Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - February 1, 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.

Red Winter

Red Winter
by Anneli Furmark

Originally published in Swedish, this new Drawn & Quarterly translation offers us the story of a mother of three who begins are affair with a communist man in 1970s Sweden. Set against the snowy Nordic backdrop, the comic is a compelling account of the knots that form when politics, desire, and responsibility converge.

Monk of Mokha

Monk of Mokha
by Dave Eggers

This is more than just a journalistic account a man who leaves his home in San Francisco to grow coffee in Yemen, a country on the brink of civil war. It's an analysis on American gentrification, immigration, coffee culture, and the realities of resource production and trade.


by Rose McGowan

Read this for McGowan's entirely unfiltered account of her path to stardom, discovering it to an unglamourous, exploitative, and abusive bubble. It's long been time to bear witness to these stories that underlie the entertainment industry.

This Will Be My Undoing

This Will Be My Undoing
by Morgan Jerkins

Jerkins, writer and associate editor at Catapult, shares intimate reflections on being a black woman in America. She's unabashed, honest, vulnerable, curious, and bright on the underlying racism and misogyny held in America.

HOBO magazine

HOBO magazine

One of our favorite high-minded high-visual quixotic mags out there. This issue, inspired by the recently-deceased Sam Shepard and his romantic imaginings of the American West, is full of dreamy writing and dusty living.
