Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - March 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.

Von Spatz

Von Spatz
by Anna Haifisch

An imaginative comic story of Walt Disney going to a paradise rehabilitation centre after a nervous breakdown. There, he meets Tomi Ungerer and Saul Steinberg and, together, they embark on a regimen of relaxation and art therapy. Haifisch looks at the drive and crippling insecurities of the average artist and places those same issues on the shoulders of three celebrated 20th century artists with warmth and absurdity,


by Mat Johnson & Warren Pleece

The special 10th anniversary edition gives you a fresh chance to read this seminal graphic novel. In early 20th century, light-skinned African-American men who could "pass" as white reported on the lynchings in the American South. Incognegro follows one such reporter in this dark somber mystery story.

The Believer

The Believer

The beloved magazine is back from a long hiatus. Look for comedian Maria Bamford answering written-in questions, an interview with love philosopher Alain de Botton, a new poem by poet laureate Tracy K. Smith, AND a short comic by the above mentioned artist Anna Haifisch.

Heart Berries

Heart Berries
by Terese Marie Mailhot

While hospitalized for post-traumatic stress and bipolar II disorders, the author was given a notebook and began to write about her dysfunctional upbringing on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in British Columbia. It's a poetic collection of memories,reflections, and dark ghosts. Not to miss.

The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror

The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror
by Mallory Ortberg

Can't go wrong with a book beloved by both Kelly Link and Carmen Maria Machado. This book of dark folk and fairy tales may frighten and spook, but they are also delightfully balanced with emotional clarity and feminist mischief.
