Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - February 15, 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.


by Akwaeke Emezi

A debut novel by a queer writer that is surreal as it is intimate. It tells a mythic story of trying to mend the gap between bodies and selves. This is a book that feels bright and necessary.


by Lisa Halliday

Another debut novel! Three stories intersect in ways that are initially unclear. This is a mystery novel in the most unusual ways. Part of the mystery comes in untying the knot of connections and peering into an exploded world.

The Escapist

Michael Chabon's The Escapist

It's always fun to see novels inspire comics, and vice versa. This book is a unique project, with author Michael Chabon compiling 30 comic artists who have illustrated over two dozen stories of The Escapist - the so-called "great lost superhero of the Golden Age" that inspired his novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.

Cabinet 64, The Nose

Cabinet 64, The Nose

Cabinet is a perennial gem. I love it in part for its imaginative dive into obscure themes, and in part because the writing published is so uniquely and rigorously researched. Check out their latest issue on the often overloooked Nose.


by Steffi Knowles-Dellner

Let's all learn from the Scandinavians. Following hygge, the Danish way to live cozily, and döstädning, the Swedish art of death cleaning, comes, LAGOM, the Swedish art of eating harmoniously. This is an attractive recipe book that shares wisdom on how to eat according to seasons, occasions, times of day, and appetite.
