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.
The newest anthology from Latvian comics publisher Kuš is out, this time putting together stories from the world of business. But for every standard-sized cubicle and mundane office memo, there's a used swimming trunk venture or literal rat race betting operation. Everything can be expected from this amazing collection of international cartoonists.
Bristol-based cycling magazine Boneshaker ("the wind in your hair, two brave wheels and the horizon") is back, this time tackling everything from the midnight sun-illuminated Norwegian mountains to the Pan-American highway. Nothing is too daring, too far-off for this carefully designed, advertisement free publication.
No one can accuse Apartamento of not having a signature style, and the design and lifestyle magazine's particular aesthetic is on full display in their new spring/summer issue. Inside you'll find a profile of interior/fashion/book designer Todd Oldham, a fanzine on filmmaker Gaspar Noe, bohemian Ibiza, Canary Islands architecture, and much more.
Lucky Peach is here! The culinary quarterly is all about the plant kingdom this time around, with recipes, taste bud tours around the world, comics by Lisa Hanawalt, and an article called "how to give the best fruit massages." You'll have to wait to figure out what that last one is.
Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt
by Chris Hedges
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hedges is no stranger to chronicling economic malaise and social justice struggle. In this new book he investigates the social and psychological factors that lead to resistance and revolution, drawing from historical and international examples to create a in-depth portrait of the activist, the rebel, the force for change.
