Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - October 12, 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.

Baking With Kafka

Baking With Kafka
by Tom Gauld

New D+Q! Tom Gauld deflates literary pomp in this best-of comics collection. In his weekly comic strips for The Guardian, Gauld treads silliness and seriousness with a humour that is both distinctly British in its deadpan, yet simultaneously all his own.

The Good Times Are Killing Me

The Good Times Are Killing Me
by Lynda Barry

New D+Q! A novel from acclaimed cartoonist Lynda Barry, The Good Times Are Killing Me is set during the white flight from urban Seattle in the 1960s, and depicts the callous racism of adults from the impeccably captured voice of an adolescent.


by Marcela Huerta

In Marcela Huerta’s debut poetry collection, she digs to the roots of her family tree, unearthing grief, memory, and the experiences as a second-generation immigrant.

The Original Face

The Original Face
by Guillaume Morissette

Guillaume Morissette’s second novel follows an under-employed internet artist in his late twenties, who is as sardonic and disillusioned as he is yearning and philosophical, as he struggles to reap a healthy harvest both in his relationships and from the brutal digital economy.

Worlds From the Word’s End

Worlds From the Word’s End
by Joanna Walsh

Joanna Walsh’s worlds are not easy. Throughout the stories collected in Worlds From the Word’s End, Walsh maps a searing psychological landscape, elucidating the inherent madness in our quotidian lives.
