Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - April 26, 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.

Love That Bunch

Love That Bunch by Aline Kominsky-Crumb

Collecting comics from the 1970s through today, Love That Bunch is shockingly prescient while still being an authentic story of its era. Kominsky-Crumb was ahead of her time in juxtaposing the contradictory nature of female sexuality with a proud, complicated feminism.

How to Write An Autobiographical Novel

How to Write An Autobiographical Novel by Alexander Chee

Eloquent and economical, Alexander Chee's writing is as good as it gets. A memoir about coming of age and finding his vocation, it is written with raw truth and lived wisdom.

Wade in the Water

Wade in the Water by Tracy K. Smith

New book of poetry by the 22nd Poet Laureate of the US, ambitiously weaving 250 years of black experience in America. She filters a chorus of voices from the past and present, near and far, using archival documents and testimonies.

Jonny Appleseed

Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead

This is the first novel from the poet of Full-metal indigiqueer. The story follows a self-proclaimed NDN glitter princess the week before a family funeral. We spend the following seven days with our beautiful and powerful big city hero as he reflects back to his residential home and family.


Vzszhhzz by Jeanne Graff

This small book is a twenty-first-century document on cosmopolitan travelers like artists, lawyers, restauranteurs, philosophers, wine-makers, and boxers - it is about how their lives intersect in unintended ways. It's look into the unglamourous glamour of the energetic dreamers we hold high.
