Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - June 21, 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.

Convenience Store Woman

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata

A thirty-six-year-old woman in Tokyo lives alone and works at a convenience store. She is totally content and at peace with her life and this confuses everyone around her. Comical, cute, and haunting.


Ayiti by Roxane Gay

Ayiti was Roxane Gay's debut collection of stories, the book that launched her career as a fearless writer and essayist. Now reissued with two previously uncollected stories, these wise, fanciful, and daring stories of the Haitian diaspora confirm Gay's singular vision and brilliance as a prose stylist.

Room to Dream

Room to Dream by David Lynch

In this unique hybrid of biography and memoir, David Lynch’s lyrical and unfiltered personal reflections riff off biographical sections written by close collaborator Kristine McKenna, based on more than one hundred new (and surprisingly canddid) interviews with intimates and colleagues of one of our most enigmatic and utterly original living artists.

Something Bright, Then Holes

Something Bright, Then Holes by Maggie Nelson

This re-issue of Nelson's 2007 collection of poems shows the celebrated author in her most incisive and economic form -- a record of a protean talent in the making. Whether writing from the debris-strewn shores of a polluted canal or from the hospital room of a friend, Nelson charts each emotional landscape she encounters with unparalleled precision and empathy.

Apartamento #21

Apartamento #21

New Apartamento! Everybody's favourite magazine on unconventional domestic spaces. In this issue, you will find interviews with painter Henry Taylor, gay icon Peter Berlin, Italian designer Lapo Binazzi, photographer Lina Scheynius, and much much more.
