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.

Leaving Richard’s Valley

Leaving Richard’s Valley by Michael Deforge

Michael Deforge’s newest comic tells the story of an eccentric group of animal friends who are forced out of their beloved valley and must learn to make their way in the Big City. In Deforge's world, frogs become bodybuilders, raccoons start noise bands, and spiders try to make it as male models. Anything can happen.

Death Threat

Death Threat by Vivek Shraya & Ness Lee

Author of the bestselling strike against toxic masculinity, I’m Afraid of Men, artist extraordinaire Vivek Shraya has collaborated with mural artist and illustrator artist Ness Lee to create this dynamic meta-comic about receiving a death threat. A collaboration in the truest sense of the word, Shraya and Lee both become characters in this fluid story. They negotiate how to make responsive work in the face of threats and violence.

Lot: stories

Lot: stories by Bryan Washington

In this debut story collection set in Houston, Texas, we are guided through the stories by an unnamed Afro-Latinx boy narrator. He takes readers to various corners of the city, observing the intimate dynamics and whispers between its inhabitants with spirited aplomb.

Sabrina & Corina: Stories

Sabrina & Corina: Stories by Kali Fajardo-Anstine

From the consistently excellent One World imprint comes this debut collection of stories featuring indigenous Latina women in the American West. Brutal, tender, and sure-footed, these stories are about women witnessing the haunting destruction of their lands, community, and bodies.

Who Killed my Father

Who Killed my Father by Édouard Louis

Following the success of Louis’ previous novels, The End of Eddy and The History of Violence, is this new translation from French against France’s rigid class system. The author brings together memories of his childhood and his father, recalling incidents of masculine rage and insanity in the face of social neglect.
