Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - August 29, 2013

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly

In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, and comics.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly is one of Montreal's premiere independent bookstores.

Every week, Montreal's Librairie Drawn & Quarterly bookstore recommends a selection of new books, including fiction, art books, magazines, and comics.


by Brian Ralph

This hardcover edition from D&Q collects the complete Reggie-12 strips, which follow the antics of its eponymous robot boy hero and his pals. Equal parts mecha and meta, Ralph’s comics are chock full of gags that take apart all your fave anime tropes (come to think of it, Reggie even sort of reminds me of someone, do you think?).

Pippi Fixes Everything

Pippi Fixes Everything
by Astrid Lindgren and Ingrid Vang Nyman

The strongest girl in the world is back! The second volume in D&Q’s reprinted series of the long-overlooked Swedish comics classic comes complete with the same ol’ eye-popping hues and off-the-wall hijinks, but this time with all new exciting adventures and a quirky supporting cast.


by Margaret Atwood

Tying up the trilogy that began with Oryx and Crake and Year of the Flood, Atwood’s newest shows her at her frenetically speculative best. We’re highly excited to jump back into the madness of her post-apocalyptic word of talking pigs, to-the-death paintball ("PainBall"), and "SecretBurgers" (ick).

Night Film

Night Film
by Marisha Pessl

To no one’s surprise, Pessl’s gripping new literary thriller has already been optioned for a film--but her cinematic and multi-media tale of satanic cinematic intrigue is edge-your-seat enough already. The fabricated internet and news ephemera blends seamlessly with the tensely plotted prose.


by Rémy Simard and Pierre Pratt

The latest from local Montreal publisher La Pastèque’s Pamplemousse line of children’s books is as fresh and adorable as we’ve come to expect. Poor titular Gustave is almost immediately gobbled up by a cat, but the inky Gothic washes and weirdly soothing ending are totally worth the drama.
