Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - March 29, 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.

From Lone Mountain

From Lone Mountain
by John Porcellino

This is a collection of stories from Porcellino’s influential King-Cat zine - heenters a new phase of his life, as he remarries and decides to leave his beloved second home Colorado for San Francisco. Grand themes of King-Cat are visited and stated more eloquently than ever before: serendipity, memory, and the quest for meaning in the everyday.

The Chandelier

The Chandelier
by Clarice Lispector

Available for the first time in English translation is Lispector 's second novel. Originally written in 1946 when she was only 23 (!), this novel propelled her to become an truly un-classifiable awe-inspiring Brazilian legend. Don't read The Chandelier for plot, but for her piercing inquiry, wild sentences, and down-reaching characters.


by Christine Mangan

Do you love juicy mysteries? This thriller set in Tangier features the usual suspense, intrigue, and unexpected murder of noir storytelling but features two mysterious women offering duplicitous accounts of their past, acts, and desires. The read will offer thrill without the guilt.

Go Home!

Go Home!
edited by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan

I urge you to read this refreshing collection of fiction, memoir, and poetry from contemporary Asian diasporic writers on the fantasy of "home". It reads like a loud urgent chorus about belonging and rejection - being here and there and nowhere at once.

Boneshaker magazine, vol. 20
