Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - October 31st, 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.

Beautiful Darkness

Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët

Newly released in paperback form, Vehlmann and Kerascoët’s frightening fairytale makes a triumphant return with the addition of new material, unpublished art, and preparatory sketches. The tale of newly homeless fairies who must learn to survive in the woods is as surreal and unsettling as ever, and guaranteed to enchant a whole new wave of devotees.

Well-Read Black Girl

Well-Read Black Girl by Glory Edim

In this beautiful, necessary anthology, Glory Edim (founder of the Well-Read Black Girl Book Club) has brought together essays by luminaries such as Jesmyn Ward, Jacqueline Woodson, Gabourey Sidibe, and Rebecca Walker, all in an effort to discuss the importance of literary representation. After all, everyone deserves to see themselves within the pages of a good book.

Useful Phrases for Immigrants

Useful Phrases for Immigrants by May-Lee Chai

Deemed a “writer to remember” by Kirkus Review, Chai is an author for a globalized world. Exploring China, the Chinese diaspora, and beyond, her characters are uniquely relatable as they navigate the solace of old lovers, the shock of family secrets, grudges, traditions, forgiveness, and long-buried skeletons.

On Haiku

On Haiku by Hiroaki Sato

Fresh from New Directions, fifty years of Sato’s thought, translations, and poetry are collected in On Haiku. A seminal text that explores the many facets of the form, whether classical, contemporary, or international, it is essential reading in poetry.

Paperback Crush

Paperback Crush by Gabrielle Moss

From babysitters to horseback riders, gymnasts to Sweet Valley twins, the totally radical history of '80s and '90s teen fiction is given its due in Moss’s shockingly comprehensive—and fun—exploration.
