Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - March 16, 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.


Sticks Angelica

Sticks Angelica
by Michael DeForge

New D+Q! The latest from Michael DeForge is a collection of comics recounting the adventures of Sticks Angelica, a 49 year old former Olympian, poet, scholar, headmistress, cellist, etc., and life in the Monterey National Park. In typical Deforgeian fashion, the world in which we find ourselves is both intimately familiar and deeply bizarre; a rabbit wallows in its unrequited love for a human and a moose (named Lisa Hanawalt!) struggles with feelings of body imprisonment.


Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions
by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Several years ago, acclaimed author and MacArthur Fellow Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a childhood friend, asking her how to raise her newborn girl to be a feminist. The fifteen invaluable morsels of wisdom in Dear Ijeawele are Adichie’s response. Adichie goes directly to the core of sexual politics in the 21st century, at once setting the stage and ripping back the curtain on what it is to be a woman today.


South and West

South and West
by Joan Didion

Luckily for us, Joan Didion has always kept extensive notebooks where she kept her observations, ideas, overheard conversations, fragments and drafts of essays, much of which have been unpublished until now. South and West is one such draft of a travelogue she kept during a road trip in the 70’s with her Husband John Gregory Dunne. Driving through Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, the essay chronicles the landscape and the people therein brought to life by Didion’s cool, skewed, precise and inimitable eye.


The Idiot

The Idiot
by Elif Batuman

A much anticipated fiction debut by the author who gave us the excellent The Possessed: Adventures in Russian Literature and the People Who Read Them. A hefty book of fiction is quite the brave move following the success of her first book (especially brave to share a title with a Dostoyevsky novel!) but it is anticipated all the more because of this and because of the name Elif Batuman has made for herself as a public writer at large. The Idiot is part bildungsroman and part historical fiction that follows Selin - a daughter of Turkish immigrants - as she makes her way through her first years at Harvard and navigates the tenuous formation of her own identity whilst obsessively creating her life around an unrequited love. Interspersed with the central narrative are essays about the authors Selin is reading and thoughtful, metaphysical emails she extends to her great unrequited love.


Triangle

Triangle
by Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen

Dynamic duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen have produced three books together—the previous two, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole and Extra Yarn, being multiple award-winners—the newest of which is Triangle, the story Triangle and Square, and the sneaky tricks they play on one another. Barnett’s sly humour is perfectly complimented by Klassen’s gorgeous illustrations and wry characterisations, which have become his trademark.
