Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - September 13, 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.

Woman World

Woman World by Aminder Dhaliwal

Behold, the feminist book of the year. Dhaliwal began writing the warmly cathartic Woman World as an Instagram comic in 2017 following the energizing Women’s March. Set in a futuristic world, a strange birth defect renders the planet void of men, destroying patriarchy in its process.


Berlin by Jason Lutes

20 years in the making, this epic graphic novel tracks the rise of fascism during the Weimar Republic years in the titular city. Following journalists and artists, communists and fascists, the hopeful and the resigned, this beautifully-told story works as essential reading for those trying to understand the current high-stakes divisions overwhelming globalized nations - especially those impacted by migration.

Call Them by Their True Names

Call Them by Their True Names by Rebecca Solnit

In her new collection of essays, Solnit (the essential guide to our times) writes about the crises and injustices repeating themselves over and over again in North America - police shootings, ecological destruction, climate change, demagoguery, gentrification, to name a few. She argues that we are mis-naming these crises - we use words that disguise the true horror of what they mean for our world.


Crudo by Olivia Laing

The author of the wildly popular The Lonely City, has come out with her first work of fiction and we are delighted! It’s an experimental novel following Kathy, a composite of the author and punk writer/provocateur Kathy Acker, as she witnesses the threat of nuclear war creep into reality.


Sprawl by Danielle Dutton

In this reissue by Wave Books, poet and fiction writer Danielle Dutton observes the suburban. She walks along sprawling suburbs and considers the eeriness of its normalcy, the stillness of its imagination, with wry graceful attention.
