Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - September 27, 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.

Dementia 21

Dementia 21 by Shintaro Kago

Yukie, a young aide in a senior care home, quickly falls into a series of twisted events in Kago’s latest absurdist manga about growing old in a world gone wacky. It’s weird and spooky, rendered with surreal undertones of cross-generational conflict.


Flocks by L Nichols

L Nichols has created a searing coming-of-age comic memoir about growing up queer in a small ultra-Christian household and community. Nichols has depicted the surrounding world in a visually realistic manner, while rendering himself as a soft button-eyed rag-doll, removing the easily recognizable and leading attributes that may have distracted readers from Nichols core honest story.

Split Tooth

Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq

Nominated for the 2018 Giller Prize, internationally acclaimed Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq has published this novel about growing up in 1970s Nunavut. After 17 years of wordless expression with her work in music, the artist offers us this piercing story into the lives of girls and women living in northern and rural communities.

Your Duck is My Duck

Your Duck is My Duck by Deborah Eisenberg

From the much-acclaimed American author comes this unpredictable and fearless collection of short stories. New York Times book critic Parul Seghal calls the new book “cannily constructed, and so instantly absorbing that it feels like an abduction.”

The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish

The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish by Katya Apekina

From the experimental small press Two Dollar Radio is this story of two grieving and homesick sisters fiercely aching for their parents’ affection. The story is full of conversations and letters, bits and pieces, pulling together the story of different familial relationships built around trauma
