Juliana Neufeld's Next Morning captures without text the all-too-well-known "next morning" feeling. (Those eyes say everything.)

Tonight: Metatron's Spring Catalog - Launch & Reading!

Join us tonight at 7 p.m. for the launch of Metatron's spring catalog! Metatron is also celebrating its first birthday in March. Congratulations to them, and to all their writers! We are excited to see what comes next!

Metatron's spring catalog features new work from Sophia Katz (Toronto) and Sara Sutterlin (Montreal). Sophia and Sara will be reading at the event, along with two very special guests (to be announced in March). Hosting by Ashley Opheim and Guillaume Morissette!

The Title Of This Book Is An Inside Joke isn't quite a collection of poems, a novella or a diary, but something in between. Sophia Katz’s debut collection unfolds in a kind of real-time intimacy, through contemporary narratives that are at times funny, at times heart-breaking, and filled with interesting observations, brutal honesty and quick wit. A wonderful and totally engrossing reading experience.

Sophia Katz's writing has been published on Medium, Everyday Genius, Hobart, Electric Cereal, That Lit Site, The Bohemyth and has captured the attention of Flavorwire, Gawker, Dazed & Confused, Rhizome and Flare Magazine. This is her first collection of writing.

"Sara Sutterlin’s I Wanted To Be The Knife picks at the bones of modern romance by exploring the disappointments of intimacy and the loneliness of dissolving relationships. Her poems are brutal, funny and full of tender, ugly details that remind us of the compromises we make with ourselves and each other when in love."—Kristina Mahler

Sara Sutterlin is a Montreal-based writer and curates What Kind of Trouble? a poetry anthology featuring the work of women and female-identified persons. She has been published in Girls Get Busy, The Chapess, Inconnu Mag and other places in print and around the web. Her project The Nude Sincerity was published by NONPOROUS last year.

Upcoming Event: Comics Workshop with Liana Finck

Join us at the Librairie on Saturday, April 25th at 7 pm to celebrate Liana Finck's graphic novel, A Bintel Brief and for a special creative workshop! As part of the Blue Metropolis Festival, Finck will present her creative process, from the initial idea to researching it to laying down text and image. Come learn about the process of creating and marketing a graphic novel.

Liana Finck studied fine art and graphic design at Cooper Union College. She was a Fulbright Fellow in Brussels in 2009-10 and is a Six Points Fellow in New York. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Forward and Tablet Magazine. She lives in New York City.

A Bintel Brief "A Bundle of Letters"—was the enormously popular advice column of The Forward, the widely read Yiddish language newspaper begun in 1906 New York. Written by a diverse community of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, these letters spoke to the daily heartbreaks and comedies of their new lives, capturing the hope, isolation, and confusion of assimilation.

Drawn from these letters—selected and adapted by Liana Finck and brought to life in her appealing two-color illustrations—A Bintel Brief is a tour of Lower East Side New York, and includes an imaginative conversation with the Yiddish "Dear Abby," Abraham Cahan, The Forward's legendary editor and creator of the Bintel Brief column.

Praise for A Bintel Brief :

“[One] the most powerful books I’ve read so far this year… Finck’s illustrations intensify the emotional resonance of these letters, invoking the buoyant magic of Marc Chagall, but also sometimes descending into the cramped world of the tenements.” —NPR's Fresh Air

Taken together, even just these 11 letters provide an invaluable sooty window onto life on the Lower East Side…. “A Bintel Brief” makes you positively hungry to read comparable letters to American immigrant newspapers around the country right now.” —New York Times

“[A] sharp, evocative style that reminds me sometimes of Ben Katchor and other times of Roz Chast. Finck’s book is more than a collection of advice columns, though-it’s an imaginative leap into the art of nostalgia…I really loved A Bintel Brief.” —Slate

Upcoming event: The Mystics of Mile End launch

Brooklyn author Sigal Samuel returns to her hometown for the official launch of her debut novel, The Mystics of Mile End, in—where else?—Mile End. Join Freehand Books as we celebrate with Sigal at Librarie Drawn & Quarterly. This free event will be taking place Wednesday, the 22nd of April at 7PM.

About the book
Four distinct voices weave together the tale of a dysfunctional Montreal family obsessed with climbing the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life. This literary debut by Jewish Daily Forward editor Sigal Samuel is reminiscent of Nicole Krauss’s The History of Love and Myla Goldberg’s Bee Season.

The Meyer family lives in Mile End, home to a mashup of hipsters and Hasidic Jews, where down the street crazy Mr. Katz is building a tree out of plucked leaves, toilet paper rolls, and dental floss. When David, a skeptical professor of religion, is diagnosed with an unusual heart murmur, he becomes convinced that his heart is whispering divine secrets.

But when David’s frenzied attempts to ascend the Tree of Life lead to tragedy, his daughter Samara, who abruptly abandoned religion years earlier, believes it is up to her to finish what she started. As Samara’s brother documents her increasingly strange behaviour, it falls to next-door neighbour and Holocaust survivor Chaim Glassman to shatter the silence that divides the members of the Meyer family. But can he break through to them in time?

Long-held family secrets square off against faith and secularity in this remarkable debut novel, written with extraordinary heart and intelligence.

About the author

She has also published work in The Rumpus, BuzzFeed, The Walrus, and This Magazine, among others.

Tonight: Double Book Launch! Lines and Dots: New Works on Digital Media by Jeff Scheible and Nicole Starosielski!

Join us tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the Librairie Drawn & Quarterly for a digital media themed double launch! Jeff Scheible and Nicole Starosielski will be presenting their respective new books: Digital Shift: The Cultural Logic of Punctuation and The Undersea Network. The event is free and open to all! There will be refreshments, and books for sale.

Digital Shift: The Cultural Logic of Punctuation explores the increasingly ubiquitous presence of punctuation and typographical marks in our lives⎯using them as reading lenses to consider a broad range of textual objects and practices across the digital age. Jeff Scheible argues that pronounced shifts in textual practices have occurred with the growing overlap of language and visual culture, as screen technologies and networked media have proliferated and come to form the interface of our daily existence. He demonstrates that punctuation and typographical marks provide us with a rare opportunity to harness these shifts and make sense of our new media environments, turning to key films and media phenomena of the twenty-first century, from the popular and familiar to the avant-garde and the obscure. Extending the dialogue about contemporary media and culture in original directions, Digital Shift is a uniquely cross-disciplinary work that reveals the impact of punctuation on the politics of visual culture and everyday life in the digital age.

Jeff Scheible is an Assistant Professor of Cinema Studies at SUNY Purchase. His research focuses on contemporary media theory and visual culture.


The Undersea Network: In our "wireless" world it is easy to take the importance of the undersea cable systems for granted, but the stakes of their successful operation are huge, as they are responsible for carrying almost all transoceanic Internet traffic. In The Undersea Network Nicole Starosielski follows these cables from the ocean depths to their landing zones on the sandy beaches of the South Pacific, bringing them to the surface of media scholarship and making visible the materiality of the wired network. In doing so, she charts the cable network's cultural, historical, geographic and environmental dimensions. 
Starosielski argues that the environments the cables occupy are historical and political realms, where the network and the connections it enables are made possible by the deliberate negotiation and manipulation of technology, culture, politics and geography. Accompanying the book is an interactive digital mapping project, where readers can trace cable routes, view photographs and archival materials, and read stories about the island cable hubs.

Nicole Starosielski is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. Her research focuses on the global distribution of digital media, and the relationships between technology, society, and the aquatic environment.

Upcoming event: Anvil Press present the launch of Melissa Bull's RUE

Join Anvil Press at the Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on Friday, May 1st at 7 p.m. for the launch of Rue by Montreal's Melissa Bull! With guest readings by Alexandra Leggat and Jennifer LoveGrove. The event will be hosted by Emma Healey. There will be readings, wine, and conversation. Free and open to all!

In her compelling debut poetry collection, shortlisted for the Robert Kroetsch Award, Melissa Bull explores the familial, romantic, and sexual ties that bind lives to cities. Rue takes us through its alleys, parks, and kitchens with a robust lyricism and language that is at once inventive and plainspoken, compassionate and frank.

In English, to rue is to regret; in French, la rue is the street – Rue’s poems provide the venue for moments of both recollection and motion. Punctuated with neologisms and the bilingual dialogue of Montreal, the collection explores the author’s upbringing in the working-class neighbourhood of St. Henri with her artist mother, follows her travels, friendships, and loves across North America, Europe, and Russia, and recounts her journalist father’s struggles with terminal brain cancer.

Inspired by powerful Quebec talents like Nelly Arcan, Marie-Sissy Labrèche, and playwright Annick Lefebvre, Melissa Bull brings an unflinching new feminist voice to the Canadian literary scene.

Melissa Bull is a writer, editor and translator based in Montreal. Her writing has been featured in Event, Matrix, Lemon Hound, Broken Pencil, The Montreal Review of Books, Playboy and Maisonneuve. She has translated such authors as Nelly Arcan, Kim Thuy, Evelyne de la Chenliere, Raymond Bock, Alexandre Soubliere and Maude Smith Gagnon for various publications. Melissa has a BA in Creative Writing from Concordia University and is currently pursuing her MFA in creative writing at the University of British Columbia. She is the 2013 winner of CBC's Hyperlocal Award, and her translation of Nelly Arcan's last collection of writing, Burqa of Skin, was published in the fall of 2014. 

The Incomparables is the debut novel from Alexandra Leggat, Trillium nominated author of Animal. Lydia Templar is obsessed with fabric, the texture and weight of cloth. Through fabrics, curtains, costumes, she expresses herself in a way she feels incapable of doing in words. For the past ten years she’s apprenticed in the wardrobe department of a small Shakespearean theatre company and has finally been given the opportunity to showcase her designs. When she discovers her husband is having an affair with his leading lady, she seeks revenge the only way she knows how: she weaves her panic, pain, and paranoia into the costumes. It costs her the job. She swears she’ll never sew again, packs her things, and returns to her mother and the sprawling country estate she left years ago. Lydia discovers that her mother has turned part of the large family home into a bed and breakfast.

When a group of counsellors from the city book the family’s B&B for the summer to prepare for a special wedding ceremony, Lydia’s plans to never thread a needle again are challenged. Through the one thing she cannot live without, the counsellors lure Lydia into a role she did not see coming — her self.

The Incomparables is a novel about ambition, betrayal, “failure,” love, family dynamics, how we deal with societal, family, and personal expectations, and how we come to accept who we are.

Alexandra Leggat is the author of the short story collections Animal (shortlisted for the Trillium Award), Meet Me in the Parking Lot, and Pull Gently, Tear Here (nominated for the Danuta Gleed First Fiction Award). She is also the author of the poetry collection This is me since yesterday. Her poetry, fiction, and essays have been published in journals across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. She teaches creative writing at the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies. The Incomparables (Anvil Press, 2014) is her first novel.

When Emily was a little girl, all she wanted to be when she grew up was a Full-Time Pioneer; in her Jehovah’s Witness family, the only imaginable future is a life of knocking on doors and handing out Watchtower magazines. But Emily starts to challenge her upbringing. She becomes closer to her closeted uncle, Tyler, as her older sister, Lenora, hangs out with boys, wears makeup, and gets a startling new haircut. After Lenora disappears, everything changes for Emily, and as she deals with her mental devastation she is forced to consider a different future.

Alternating between Emily’s life as a child and her adult life in the city, Watch How We Walk offers a haunting, cutting exploration of “disfellowshipping,” proselytization, and cultural abstinence, as well as the Jehovah’s Witness attitude towards the “worldlings” outside of their faith. Sparse, vivid, suspenseful, and darkly humorous, Jennifer LoveGrove’s debut novel is an emotional and visceral look inside an isolationist religion through the eyes of an unforgettable protagonist.

Jennifer LoveGrove is the author of the Giller Prize longlisted novel Watch How We Walk, as well as two poetry collections: I Should Never Have Fired the Sentinel and The Dagger Between Her Teeth. She is currently at work on a new manuscript of poetry and another novel.
