Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - October 4th, 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.

Art Comic

Art Comic by Matthew Thurber

Art Comic places the art world under a harsh and hilarious microscope, skewering anything and everything at each turn. For the art lover or those exasperated by the art world, Art Comic has something for everyone and is populated with all your favourite artists and celebrities: Robert Rauschenberg, Francesca Woodman, Elton John, Bowie, and more!

The Best American Comics 2018

The Best American Comics 2018 edited by Phoebe Gloeckner

A treasure trove of the diverse and high-caliber comics published over the past year. This carefully chosen collection brings together works originally conceived as graphic novels, comics, periodicals, zines, and online works, and it shows how truly spectacular and genre-defying this art form is. Bonus: you’ll find the above mentioned Art Comic in these pages, testifying to its top-notch hilarity and quality.

The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2018

The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2018 edited by Sheila Heti

Flaunting gorgeous colorful cover art by comics artist Tommi Parrish, edited by the superb Sheila Heti, and chosen by fifteen Bay Area teens, this new collection of non-required reading is a doozy. It features an eclectic array of writing for every mood and season: stories, interviews, journalism, comics, tributes, and even Kara Walker’s incredible unforgettable artist statement.

Revenge of the Translator

Revenge of the Translator by Brice Matthieussent, trans. Emma Ramadan

Here is a thrilling meta novel originally written in French - a peek into the mind of an obsessive, and increasingly unstable translator. Written entirely of footnoted annotations, it’s about a French translator translating a fictional work back into its original language, attempting to justify his growing changes to the text.

The Flame: Poems & Selections from Notebooks

The Flame: Poems & Selections from Notebooks by Leonard Cohen

Collecting poems and entries from Cohen's notebook in the final years of his life, this posthumous publication offers an intimate selection of writing from the late great artist. Asking dark questions and considering deep sorrows, offering musings and sly jokes, Cohen’s writing is always a pleasure.
