Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - December 1, 2017

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.


We Told You So: Comics As Art

We Told You So: Comics As Art
by Michael Dean and Tom Spurgeon

Congratulations to our pals at Fantagraphics on reaching the 40 year milestone! The legendary comics publisher was founded in 1976 by a bright, young group of men and women with the belief that comics could be art. Four decades later, comic books are reviewed positively in literary publications and are held in similar esteem to their prose counterparts, a striking resurgence of a medium that was once all but discredited. We Told You So is the oral history of a true trailblazer, and traces the lineage of modern comics through interviews with over 200 cartoonists (including Robert Crumb and Daniel Clowes), editors, critics, and more.


Difficult Women

Difficult Women
by Roxane Gay

Acclaimed essayist, powerhouse talent, and twitter icon Roxane Gay has delivered on the hype once again. Difficult Women collects previously published stories, and with them it collects evidence that Gay’s writing deserves the superlatives. Her remarkable language feels raw as an exposed tooth root, and as the reader burrows through these thematically linked stories, one finds that the harshness of the subject matter (violence, rape, desperation, etc.) is negated by Gay’s engrossing prose. There is particular care in depicting the body, in experiencing the world through the body, which adds a clarity, an immediacy.


Kubrick Red: A Memoir

Kubrick Red: A Memoir
by Simon Roy, translated by. Jacob Homel

Simon Roy teaches literature at Collège Lionel-Giroux, and has seen Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining over forty times. Translated from the original French by Jacob Homel, Kubrick Red is a difficult book to describe, but, as Kubrick himself pointed out in 1995, what good book isn’t? Simon Roy’s novel fuses film theory, thriller, and reflections on his troubled childhood to create an unsettling and often brilliant debut.


Homesick For Another World: Stories

Homesick For Another World: Stories
by Ottessa Moshfegh

A regular in the likes of The Paris Review and The New Yorker, Ottessa Moshfegh’s fiction is incredibly alluring. The unsentimental depravity from her acclaimed novel Eileen is kicked up a notch in this collection of short stories. Do not let the exterior fool you, these are not tales of sci-fi fantasy, these are stories of the down-and-out dancing in the ditch with two left feet. Her stories are often brutal and outrageous, but Moshfegh truly excels when she works in moments of tenderness and compassion; hers is a craft of startling emotional complexity.


Blood of the Dawn

Blood of the Dawn
by Claudia Salazar Jiménez, translated by Elizabeth Bryer

Claudia Salazar Jiménez, professor and founder of literary journal Fuegos de Arena, is one of the most recognized Peruvian writers of her generation, and is now available to English readers through the translation of her stunning debut. Blood of the Dawn is teeth-bared tale of three women’s lives during the “time of fear” in Peru, when the Shining Path rebel insurgency was at its peak. This incendiary novel manages to pair an honest look at a social and national trauma with an intimate portrayal of the personal tragedies within.
