This Shelf Belongs to...Chester Brown!



Each month, Librairie Drawn and Quarterly invites a local author or artist to curate a shelf in the store. This May, we bring you recommendations from Chester Brown!
 
Chester Brown was born in Montreal in 1960 and is best known for his two recent nonfiction graphic novels: the meticulously researched and Harvey Award-winning Louis Riel and the controversial, critically acclaimed Paying for It. Brown began self-publishing his comic book series Yummy Fur at twenty-three, and has been publishing with D+Q since 1991. He is the author of The PlayboyI Never Liked YouThe Little Man, and Ed The Happy Clown. Brown lives in Toronto, where he ran for Parliament twice as a member of the Libertarian Party of Canada. His most recent book is 2016's Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus.


In addition, all of Chester's picks will be 15% off for the month of May! Here's a sneak peak of what you'll find on his shelf:


SHAKESPEARE'S LOST KINGDOM by Charles Beauclerk  
"Shakespeare did NOT write the works attributed to him. This is a biography about the unknown man who did write the famous plays and poems."  

PUTTING ON THE MIND OF CHRIST by Jim Marion
"A book by a Christian mystic about the levels of spiritual development."

THE OCCULT
by Colin Wilson
"Wilson's message is that most of live our lives on auto-pilot, and that we should develop strategies to get us out of that state. Read every book you can find by this man!"

LOVING WHAT IS by Katie Byron

"Katie is the wisest person on the planet. She has developed a simple technique for defusing one’s negative thoughts. These books changed my life."

THE WISDOM OF JESUS
by Cynthia Bourgeault
"The best book that I know of about the teachings of Jesus."
 

WOMAN REBEL by Peter Bagge
"I thought I knew all one needed to know about Margaret Sanger. Boy, was I wrong, as this book taught me."

GEORGE SPROTT by Seth
"Seth is one of my closest friends, and this book is dedicated to me, so maybe I’m biased, but I think this is a masterpiece by Canada’s greatest cartoonist."


LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE: VOL. 4 by Harold Gray
"Harold Gray is the cartoonist who influenced me the most, and the story about Cosmic City in this volume is probably his best. This is a good place to start if you don’t know his work."

UNDERWORLD by Kaz

"I’m obsessed with this book right now — the cartooning is beautiful. The gags are pretty funny, too. And I love the low-rent atmosphere that pervades these pages."
