Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - September 20, 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.


Pyongyang

Pyongyang by Guy Delisle

First published in French in 2003 and in English (by Drawn & Quarterly) in 2005, Pyongyang is one of Guy Delisle’s most iconic travelogue comics, taking the reader on an unprecedented and wryly humorous docu-graphic tour of closed-off North Korea, where photography is restricted and journalists are forbidden. More relevant than ever, Pyongyang has been freshly reissued with a brief introduction by Gore Verbinski, who had hoped to adapt the book for film before the project was shelved as too geopolitically volatile.


Theory

Theory by Dionne Brand

A former Poet Laureate of Toronto and recipient of the Order of Canada, Dionne Brand’s poetry, stories, novels, essays, and documentary films are among Canada’s foremost literary considerations of gender, race, sexuality and feminism. Theory is perhaps her most ambitious work to date, narrating the story of a grad student of unspecified gender, attempting to write a wildly ambitious thesis on the past, present, and future of art, culture, race, gender, class, and politics while being transformed by encounters with three successive lovers.


Maggie Terry

Maggie Terry by Sarah Schulman

American novelist, activist, playwright, nonfiction writer, screenwriter and AIDS historian Sarah Schulman has worn many hats over her long career. Most recently, her non-fiction book Conflict Is Not Abuse, which considers the ethics and politics of power relations on both interpersonal and group scales, has spurred much interest and discussion. Her new novel, Maggie Terry, may surprise some of her readers: it’s a police thriller influenced by her 19 years of teaching at CUNY Staten Island and her experience working with students who are police officers, or from NYPD families.


Obits

Obits by Tess Liem

Obits is the debut poetry collection (via Coach House Books) from breakout Montreal writer Tess Liem. In it, she attempts to write obituaries for those whose memorials are missing. She considers victims of mass deaths, fictional characters, and her own aunt, asking questions -- from her perspective as a mixed-race queer woman -- about how to remember, and who receives that privilege.


Shiner


The Latest Winter

Shiner and The Latest Winter by Maggie Nelson

Thanks to recent books like Bluets, The Art of Cruelty, and The Argonauts, Maggie Nelson has become an icon of contemporary creative non-fiction. But interest has also been mounting in her earlier books of poetry. Following close on the heels of this year’s new edition of Something Bright, Then Holes (originally published in 2003), Zed Books has re-published Nelson’s first two books, Shiner and The Latest Winter, which heralded the arrival of her virtuoso voice.
