Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - July 19, 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.


Entropy by Aaron Costain

Readers follow a Golem as he travels through a millenia to investigate his own creation. Absurd and fantastical, this read transgresses cultures and generations, and yet somehow, Aaron Costain has created an all too timely tale.

The Death of Truth

The Death of Truth by Michiko Kakutani

Former New York Times book critic Michiko Kakutani asks; how did truth become an endangered species in contemporary America? Kakutani investigates the inherent political biases of her neighbouring citizens and dutifully interrogates what it means to find Truth in the midst of it all.

New Poets of Native Nations

New Poets of Native Nations by Heid E Erdrich

A pertinent anthology collecting the works of emerging Native poets after the year 2000. Featuring a diverse breadth of ages and voices, this anthology will inform readers of the culture’s increasingly growing talent.


Idiophone by Amy Fusselman

An intimate examination into the task of art making and its relationship within motherhood. Fusselman presents an honest and intelligent account towards the merits of risk-taking, and the emerging beauty in that leap.

*launching Idiophone at La Petite D+Q on September 21 at 7pm (in conversation with Hillary Brenhouse)


Comemadre by Roque Larraquy (translated by Heather Cleary)

At what lengths do we seek transcendence? With a crisp translation by Heather Cleary, Roque Larraquy muddles the readers views on limitations in pursuit of meaning. Abstract in it’s observations, this title has been featured in numerous anticipatory lists for Fall 2018.
