Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - May 3, 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.

Carnet de Voyage

Carnet de Voyage by Craig Thompson

Fresh from the success of Blankets, Thompson kept a sketchbook diary of his travels through Europe and Morocco while promoting the European editions of his book. The pages are peopled with fellow travelers: cartoonists, friends, and lovers met along the way, who breathe life into a work not to be missed by lovers of travelogues.


Motherhood by Sheila Heti

A deep and reflective dive into the desires and pull to have children. Heti, from How Should a Person Be? and The Believer's interview series, wants the universe to tell her, straight, whether or not she should become a mother. The universe is unhelpful, but her piercing account is a compelling and relatable.

The Pisces

The Pisces by Melissa Broder

Pick this up for a fun sexy romp of a book. Lovelorn Lucy falls in love with a merman and begins to rethink everything she though she knew about love and desire. The perfect read to jump start your spring reading.

The Mars Room

The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner

The story of a woman serving two consecutive life sentences in a woman's correctional facility for killing her stalker. Tracking the daily routines and illogicality of institutional living, this book illuminates a harsh and distinct world. Turn off Orange is the New Black and read this for a true-feeling, soul-aching, down-pouring tale.

The Mushroom Fan Club

The Mushroom Fan Club by Elise Gravel

For kiddos, a new illustrated book by the prodigious Elise Gravel. Full of facts and silly drawings, readers - adults and kids alike - will come away charmed and armed with fungi facts to impress.
